OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION

Our primary mission is to provide emergency assistance in a preventive manner to missing children in Switzerland. As well as to children and their families who are in a vulnerable situation when a minor goes missing.

We work through the 116 000 hotline and offer face-to-face consultations.
The International Convention on the Rights of the Child is our framework of activity.

Our secondary mission is to provide a global analysis of the improvements that can be made to co-existing systems in order to resolve the problem of the disappearance of minors.

We contribute to the evolution of the social and judicial system by offering specialized expertise in this field. Our action intervenes in a preventive way as well as following the disappearance of a child in Switzerland.

The child, our top priority
The protection of the child's interests is the focus of our interventions. It is always our lighthouse in rough seas.

Efficiency and speed
In an emergency, we know who to mobilise first. We are ready to act and handle each case with diligence and professionalism. We will not give up as long as children are missing.

Impartiality and compassion
We act in a benevolent manner by trying to avoid any judgment. We accept that everyone is different and deserves the same quality of support.

Collaboration
We consider assistance to victims of disappearance as a team effort, whether with our Internet community, with other organisations or with the authorities. We seek to develop sustainable and constructive partnerships and work to create a support network that can be activated in the event of a disappearance.
