THE FOUNDATION

PHILOSOPHY

Since 1985, the Fondation Aide aux Enfants (FAE) has devoted itself to improving the lives of the poorest citizens of Colombia. The Foundation’s “Bambi” homes take in children between 0 and 6 years of age who live in extreme situations in order to restore their physical and psychological well-being. At the same time, the Foundation also helps these children’s parents become financially autonomous on a long term basis, through its professional training program, PROMEFA.

HISTORY

The first Bambi home opened in 1985, at the initiative of Dr. Rupert Spillmann. While he was working on a tropical disease study in Cali, Columbia, he was struck by the lack of pre-school institutions for children living in slums and decided to create the first home. From Geneva, his cousin, Hans Rudi Spillmann, has ensured the continuity of this project as President of the FAE, created in 1989.

MISSION STATEMENT

According to official numbers, there are five million children under the age of five in Colombia. Fifty-six percent of them live below the poverty line. It is our mission to provide vital support to these underprivileged children, to strengthen their parent's socio-economic stability, and to find sustainable solutions for the future.

FINANCING

40% of the Bambi Homes' finances come from Switzerland, the other 60% from Colombia. Private donors, companies, foundations, cities cantons and communities give financial support to our programs. Fundraising is centralized in Geneva, with the exception of the Darién home.
