French-American Aid For Children (FAAFC): 80 years of commitment to child protection

French-American Aid for Children is an organization that has been working since 1939 to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in France and the United States. Located in New York, the organization is committed to building a better future for children, while strengthening the bonds of the French-American friendship.

A longstanding partner: 49 years of support for France Parrainages

Since 1974, the French-American Aid for Children organization has been providing financial support to our non-profit organization, and in particular to our programs for children and young people in France. As a longstanding partner of France Parrainages, the FAAFC's support has enabled us to carry out a wide range of actions, from helping parents to find employment, to supporting the development of local sponsorships... France Parrainages is more than grateful for these many years of support.

"I've known Mrs Marguerite Mangin (FAAFC President) since I joined France Parrainages nearly 10 years ago. Over all these years, in her position as President of the FAAFC, through the generous contributions granted to our association, she has always done everything so that we can help more vulnerable children in times strucked by health and economic crises. I would like to thank her sincerely on my own behalf and on behalf of all the association's staff". Francis Canterini, President of France Parrainages.

French-American Aid For Children (FAAFC): an organization serving vulnerable children

Over the years, the FAAFC has consistently supported our local sponsorship branches and the support provided by our teams of childcare professionals. In recent years, the FAAFC has funded several projects aimed at improving the lives of the children and families we support in France:

  • In 2021, in the midst of the pandemic, the FAAFC organization enabled the establishment of therapy sessions for parents and children in need of psychological support. In total, 60 individuals benefited from crucial psychological assistance.
  • In 2021, 2022 and 2023, FAAFC also funded the establishment and support of over 130 child and youth sponsorships within our various branches in France. This support is fundamental to enable us to help even more children and young people.

Beyond these specific and various projects, the FAAFC has also funded the creation of communication tools to allow our association to promote its actions to the general public, especially through sponsors testimonial videos, booklets and leaflets. These essential tools have played a major role in recruiting new volunteer sponsors and raising public awareness of the impact of sponsorship on children.

"For 49 years, the FAAFC has been renewing its support for France Parrainages unwaveringly. Thanks to this partnership, a large number of children have been able to benefit from a caring environment and the support they need to grow and flourish. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the FAAFC for the many years of trust, and for the many benefits brought to children and young people in France." Vincent Lepannetier, partnerships officer at France Parrainages.
