The COVID-19 pandemic caused a global crisis in education and health systems hitting already fragile countries even harder. Our health and education programmes faced many challenges!
Enfants du Monde adapted rapidly to reduce the impact of this crisis on our beneficiaries, babies, children, young people and pregnant women.
Below we share the main key figures of our activities. None of this would have been possible without your support: on behalf of the children, mothers-to-be, and young mothers benefitting from our programmes, thank you!
Continuing to protect pregnant women and their babies: a priority
In 2020, the COVID-19 crisis hit the countries where we work, adversely affecting health systems which were already fragile and populations living in precarious conditions. Enfants du Monde responded to the pandemic with its local partners and the Ministries of Health in Burkina Faso, Bangladesh, Haiti and El Salvador to continue improving maternal and child health during the health crisis.

Adapting teaching and learning to ensure a quality education
COVID-19 caused a global crisis in education, hitting countries with already fragile education systems even harder. In 2020, school closures impacted the learning, the well-being and the safety of children as well as access to essential school services such as canteens and vaccination. Within its education programmes* in Burkina Faso, Guatemala, Niger and Chad, Enfants du Monde adapted its activities to the local situation so as to continue education for students and training for teaching staff.
*including mandates undertaken for the Swiss and French Cooperation

Education in children’s rights
Enfants du Monde implemented two educational projects in Swiss classrooms on children’s rights and on sustainable development. The project A Fairer World culminated in taking part in an event on the World Children's Right, and the project Young Reporters enabled children to present their rights in their own way through photos, video, audio or written texts.

In 2020, the volume of Enfants du Monde’s activities and the amount of its funding has never been so high with a total budget of 12,900,878 CHF.
Mandates for education programmes in Africa granted by the Swiss Agency for Development, part of which (in Chad) is co-financed by the French Development Agency (AFD), account for 51% of the total annual budget.
