The first Bambi home was opened in 1985, at the initiative of Dr. Rupert Spillmann. While he was working on a tropical disease study in Cali (Colombia), he was struck by the lack of pre-school institutions for children living in slums.

From Geneva, his cousin, Hans Rudi Spillmann has ensured the continuity of this project as President of the Foundation created in 1989.

Since 1985, 16.300 children have benefited from our activities in 4 Bambi homes.
