Welcome - We are looking forward to your visit!

Who are we?

The association Schattenkinder e. V. was founded in November 2001 from a parent initiative. This initiative was aimed at supporting children and young adults with disabilities and their families from the district of Minden-Lübbecke (NRW). In the meantime, we are active not only in Germany, but also in other European countries.


What do we do?

Our main focus is animal-assisted therapy with advice, support and support. The development and promotion of people is one of the exciting tasks of our association. A tolerant coexistence of non-disabled and disabled people in our society is an enrichment for all.

Our attention:

A particular concern is the integration, inclusion and the equal opportunity of people with special Needs.

This is why our mission statement is:

"If you really want something, you can do it!"

Living and understanding together - mutual perception and appreciation.



We are working hard to achieve our goals. This is made possible by the voluntary commitment of the many people who founded this association and constantly developed it further. We know that only together can something move.

Support and promote our association through a membership.


Through a donation you can help children and young adults with disabilities.
