Golfing for Missing Children Europe


A fantastic golf day at Royal Zoute Golf Club on Friday 19 May 2017

The annual charity event "Golfing for Missing Children Europe" started in 2006 and has to date attracted over 1,700 golfers to some of the most prestigious golf courses in Belgium. This event reaches high level management in private companies as well as well-known members of civil society, raising awareness of Missing Children Europe and of the risks faced by missing children.

We warmly thank the President and the members of the Royal Zoute Golf Club who generously offered two of their famous courses to support the cause of missing children and allowed us to gather 200 golfers for a memorable day of golf. The day ended with a delicious dinner served in the club-house. 

What's next ? We invite you to join us at Golf Club d'Hulencourt on Friday 8 June 2018

Full programme and registration from 1 March 2018.

What will the money raised be used for?

Parents, carers, professionals and authorities can all play an extremely important role in preventing a child from going missing. Whether a child runs away from an untenable home situation, whether they are separated from family during migration or whether they are abducted by a parent undergoing divorce, there is always a window of opportunity where the situation could have been prevented from escalating.

This is why training and capacity building is so important and why Missing Children Europe’s new project will help to ensure that people recognise the warning signs and know what to do to prevent these cases and protect a child. Our research has shown that many professionals are not aware of existing training, often do not have the resources to take advantage of any training available or have language barriers that exclude them from learning more about what they can do. Over the course of this year, we will be collating and organising existing training and prevention tools in easy to manage modules, guidelines and webinars to provide a free and accessible resource library for parents, professionals and authorities. This resource will be a one stop shop to ensure that everyone is equipped with the right knowledge to prevent a child from going missing.
