In every region of the world, there are people with almost no chance to live a decent and independent life. They lack food, shelter and education and hence they have no prospects for the future.
It is these people that we wish to help with our initiatives and provide with a fresh im-petus for new perspectives. For this reason, we focus on innovative projects with the objective of not only offering direct support but also to make a sustainable contribution towards helping people improve their living conditions by virtue of their own ef-forts.
It is the long-term objective of our support to provide them with an adequate framework to this end – exactly in line with our slogan “We build a better future”.
