Empowered people transform the world.
Both in emergencies as well as long-term assistance, we support people in challenging living circumstances by equipping them with needed knowledge, capability, and capacity in both emergencies and long-term development.
We are eager to give them the power to have a better life, a better future and a better world.
In a world full of injustice, violence, and suffering, we are eager to be the symbol of hope. Our mission is not to ignore the tragedies of the world, but to give hope in situations that may seem hopeless. We support vulnerable people by improving their living conditions through our project activities in a way that allows them to attain self-sufficiency.
Together, we work with local communities to create sustainable solutions in the world’s most difficult regions. We work where our help is needed and where assistance is appropriate.
We are willing to respond quickly and thoroughly – obstacles and limitations do not stop us; exceptional situations challenge us to find new ways to act and to get involved. We are driven by a strong willingness to learn and we continually grow through creativity and flexibility.
We are passionate about people.
Providing people with motivation and a new perspective for the future greatly enriches us. The results and appreciation we achieve grace us with deep joy and satisfaction. We empower vulnerable members of society, motivate young people to pursue their dreams, strengthen women in reaching equality, and help people make positive changes in their communities. Our focus is on conflict-ridden areas in the Middle East, as the need there is so great.
We treat all people the same regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender or social status. Through our intercultural competence and experience, we demonstrate respect and understanding for an individual’s situation, ensuring that our assistance is effective. At the same time, we engage in inspiring more and more people to stand against injustice and campaign for all those who cannot help themselves.
No matter the project, partnership, or daily work, our core values are our cornerstones and serve as the basis for all our actions.
Genuine help is more than mere material assistance. We believe that long-term sustainable development is possible only in an environment conducive to positive human relationships that are based on respect, acceptance and reconciliation.
Where human beings suffer and despair, we cannot remain indifferent. We fiercely fight misery with our dedication and passion, celebrating every change for the better.
We regard every human being as unique with his or her own inviolable dignity. That is why we strive to encourage and empower everyone with the hope for a dignified life.
Authenticity and transparency inspire the way we work. By open communication, we build the foundation for empathy and mutual trust that create the optimal condition to resolve upcoming problems and to find new solutions together.
Despite the adversities and uncertainties, we operate in the world’s most instable territories, and we encourage others to take a stand against injustice and to support those who cannot help themselves.
