Enfants & Développement (E&D) is a French NGO founded in 1984 under the name “SOS Enfants du Cambodge” with the objective of helping children who were victims of the genocide in Cambodia. Since its creation, E&D has extended its action across Vietnam, Nepal, and Burkina Faso, as well as France, always with the aim of improving the living conditions of the most underprivileged children in the world, and giving them better prospects for their future. E&D runs all its projects in partnership with local NGOs or governmental services, as well as with targeted communities that are involved in both the project’s design and implementation. In order to achieve long-term self-sustainability, all projects include the training of qualified local personnel.
