A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER PRESIDENT
To bring back joy into the lives of children who have lost that joy, that is the ambition of Enfants de cœur.
"Enfants de cœur" showcases associations working for these children and helps them to realise their objectives by offering our resources - this is what sets us apart.
"The association serving associations helping children."
This love for children, this inner energy that spurs us onwards to brighter paths, faith in the beauty of life - I share this with a wonderful, talented, generous team.
With them, with you, together we can do something for children who are suffering.
Let's give a helping hand to destiny for a more radiant future; let's look further, climb higher, and "reach for the stars."
Founder President of "Enfants de Coeur"
ORIGIN OF OUR ASSOCIATION ...
Some volunteers in contact with different children's charities noticed that many of them suffered from a lack of communication means and skills. Despite their remarkable work in the field, this handicap means that they are not able to make themselves known, hindering their development. Enfants de Cœur, a non-profit association, offers their resources in response to this need. It was created February 26, 2002, at Vienne in the French department of Isère.
ABOUT OUR NAME ...
A little adopted girl asked her new mother about her origins. She answered with this message of love. "Tu es mon enfant de cœur" (you are the child of my heart, homonymous with enfant de chœur, altar boy or girl.)
We named our association "Enfants de Cœur" in remembrance of that story.
THE ORIGINALITY OF OUR APPROACH ...
Enfants de Cœur has set itself the goal of creating, organizing and supporting all types of activities: cultural, athletic ... within and outside of France, for the benefit of associations helping children with special needs aged 0 to 18 years, particularly children suffering from chronic afflictions, disabled children, abused children ...
A SOLID, HUMANISTIC PROJECT ...
For each campaign, the associations helped by Enfants de Cœur are carefully selected based on the quality of their work, their dynamism and their motivation.
