The ANAR Foundation helps all children and teenagers via the ANAR Phoneline/Chat, wherever they are. ANAR has regional offices to support children, teenagers and their families by explaining the helplines.
If you would like to learn more at first hand, speak to us, or contribute in your region, look for your closest office on the map.
The Organisation has its headquarters in Madrid, organising all child and teenage support programmes throughout Spain.
The ANAR Foundation Peru was set up in 1995 with the opening of the Santa Felicia Home in Lima.
On 8 July 1998 the ANAR Helpline for Children and Teenagers at Risk opened in Lima. This is a confidential, freephone service with the aim of listening and offering psychological guidance, social support and legal advice for children and youngsters in Peru.
It functions in a similar way to the ANAR Phoneline in Spain: staffed by a team of professionals (psychologists, social workers, lawyers and educators), many of whom are volunteers. The ANAR Foundation is able, through the ANAR Phoneline,
to reach populations that would otherwise be inaccessible. It is delivering help to children and teenagers in all regions of Peru.
In May 2011 the ANAR Foundation in Peru launched the ANAR Phoneline in Quechua, with the aim of extending its service to Quechua-speaking children and teenagers in remote regions of the Andes
cut off from the rest of the country, as well as their relatives. The aim is to be able to offer them psychological, social and legal support in their mother tongue.
The first ANAR Colombia Home opened in 1991 to provide protection and comprehensive support for abandoned children and teenagers and/or victims of violence.
The girls arriving at our ANAR Home have suffered traumatic experiences, and ANAR’s work therefore does not simply involve meeting their material and educational needs, but also offering them psychological support, and above all plenty of love.
Many of the children at the Home have no families, or they do not have appropriate conditions to take care of them, and they are therefore placed in the care of international adoption projects. At the Home, a range of professional staff work to give them the right tools to handle the process successfully. We also work together with their adoptive parents in the destination country to ensure that the girls settle into their new home.
