«For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.»
Nelson Mandela


Even people suffering from abject poverty can lead a decent life, and special attention should be paid to positively developing and supporting children.

Mission and aim

The main aim is to support children and women, so that eventually they are no longer dependent on help and handouts from us and others.


All people are equal. If there is any doubt, we place ethical and moral values over religious and cultural particularities.

The weakest need our help most. This is particularly valid for the protection of children, women and people with disabilities and other special needs.

We work with local NGOs and place great importance on respect for cultural and religious particularities.

We carry out regular reporting and ask for project reports, which constitute an integral part of our support.


We continually strive to keep up with the most up-to-date knowledge and teachings in all fields of development aid.

We support projects according to necessity, relevance, sustainability, and only work with trustworthy local partners.

As a matter of principle, the people we help must always contribute with their own hard work towards the success of the project in an appropriate way.

  • This ensures that a real need is served, and
  • that investments are carefully administered and maintained.
