ISS provides help on a transnational scale to children and families facing social and/or legal problems. Ever since the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was signed it has been one of our main goals to translate the spirit of the UNCRC into concrete support for children living in difficult conditions far away from their country of origin.
The International Social Service Network (ISS) links up national social service organizations with the aim of helping children and their families living in one country, or scattered over several countries, to resolve the social and/or legal problems they are confronted with.
With its network active in 140 countries, the Swiss Foundation of the ISS provides help on a transnational scale to children and families facing social and/or legal problems.
The main concern of ISS is that every child can grow up safely, in a stable family environment giving him the best possible perspectives for the future. The fields of intervention are:
Protection of Children -The Rights of Parents - Child Abduction - Alimony Payments - International Adoption - Search of Origin -Binational Couples - Unaccompanied Minor Refugees - Immigration Law.
