The Catholic Children's Movement is the largest children's organisation in Austria, having 11, 600 members, most of them volunteers taking care of 100,000 children. The "Catholic Children's Movement" is active in all nine Austrian dioceses, each employing full-time and volunteer personnel.
In the Jungschar groups, where girls and boys meet on a weekly basis, we promote a spirit of cooperation and a responsible attitude towards Creation.
We support children in their religious development and share our trust in our loving and caring God during conversations and common pastoral activities.
We make an issue out of children's living conditions and commit ourselves to politics orientated towards the needs of children.
Due to DKA we commit ourselves to a fairer world. With material from our educational department we offer the possibility of getting to know the living conditions of the poor and try to sensitize about issues of deprived people.
