A better world for children

Children give us wings

This is our guiding principle. Creating a better world for them – that is our ambition. We, the members of Sportler 4 a childrens world e. V. , have made it our business to help children who are stricken by poverty and distress. We fight for children’s rights and take a stand against racism and for integration. Over the next two years we will raise money to support children in more than 130 countries; our partner in 2018/19 is SOS Childen’s Villages International.
John McGurk, our chairman, knows from his own experience what it is like to live in misery as a child. For this reason he has been putting himself out for a long time in order to provide better living conditions for children. He has been a member of unicef and World Vision Deutschland since 1993. Up to now he has raised more than 1.000.000 € to support non-profit aid projects for children around the world and was honoured with the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. We want to carry on John’s personal experience through the work of our association, always with the objective to help children. With the highest possible degree of responsibility, conviction, passion – and of course endurance .
