Vision Hope International – providing relief since 2002.
Vision Hope International was founded in 2002 on the initiative of Matthias Leibbrand, who had previously successfully initiated and supervised several projects in Yemen, and committed his circle of friends to join on the founding of the organization. VHI is registered as an association at the City Courts of Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany (VR 270382) and is recognized by the Tax Authorities in Emmendingen, Germany as a non-profit and charitable organization (Tax ID 05015/05894).
Since the beginning, our goal has been to provide people in developing countries with a hopeful vision for a life of dignity. Through numerous projects in the MENA region and in Germany, VHI has established its presence in the humanitarian aid sector and receives support from private donations as well as institutional funds. Our tasks and more detailed goals are set out in our statutes.
Transparency is important to us
To ensure transparency, our financial statements are audited yearly since 2008 by an external auditor. The auditor statements are published with our annual reports.
We have also signed the voluntary commitment Transparent Civil Society Initiative by Transparency International, through which we commit to making available online key financial information as to how and for what purposes we use your donations. You can read this and other information about our organization here.
