The ARCHE Children's Foundation in Hamburg

The ARCHE takes children off the streets and accompanies them on their journey towards a school certificate of completion and then into further education and training. These young people have a permanent refuge in the afternoon at the ARCHE, where they can find reliable caregivers who help them find a sound path to a self-determined life. In the ARCHE, children and young people experience recognition and thus gain confidence in their abilities.

The Hamburg ARCHE was founded in 2006 in the Jenfeld district, triggered by the event of young seven-year-old Jessica starving to death in her parents' flat. This should never happen again.

Today, with its centres in the focal areas of Jenfeld, Billstedt and Harburg, the ARCHE is in contact with over 1,000 children and young people from socially disadvantaged families. Many of them come to one of the ARCHE’s facilities every day. Here they get a warm meal; they can try out different types of sport and music and can make friends and have people to talk to. The ARCHE team enables their fosterlings to develop their talents and supports them in all school matters.

Even under challenging conditions of the pandemic, special attention is paid to homeschooling and tutoring - locally and digitally. This is how most ARCHE children manage to stay on top of their schoolwork. As a result, the number of school graduates is steadily rising and young people are able to find apprenticeships or university places with the help of the ARCHE team. In appreciation for the support they have experienced in the past, many former ARCHE youths have returned to help out at the ARCHE facility centres.

The ARCHE is financed by more than 95 % from donations and is therefore heavily dependent on external help.

The non-profit "ARCHE-Freundeskreis" has supported the “Hamburg ARCHE” on a voluntary basis from the very beginning. We collect donations, provide information, and are available as a sparring partner for all questions regarding the ARCHE's work.

You can become a member of the "Freundeskreis" and support the ARCHE as part of a strong network. Contact us!
