Greeting from the President
Welcome to the Internet site of the German Child Protection Association - Deutscher Kinderschutzbund Bundesverband e.V. (DKSB)!
As the President of the DKSB, I am very pleased for your interest in our Association and what we do.
Our mission is to serve as a lobby for every child in Germany. The DKSB is committed to children’s rights in Germany and implementing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It campaigns for children on all levels of government from national and state legislation to the policies and decisions applied in our towns and municipalities. We aim to improve children’s living conditions, to protect them from violence, and to eliminate child poverty in every form. Our work ranges from policymaking in our national and state associations to practical daily work with children, youths, and their families in both projects and the services provided in our many local associations.
I cordially invite you to read through the following pages and find out more about the structure of the DKSB along with details on our projects and the services we provide.
