Help for Self-Help
Community development through supporting self-reliance
Under the motto "Help for Self-Help", we support small business owners in developing a new source of income for themselves and their families, which will ultimately lead to sustainable and lasting changes in poor and rural communities.
"The way to a sustainable, self-determined life. ... according to the motto" Help for self-help ""
For us, giving "help for self-help" means supporting people and communities in need in their own endeavors without releasing them from their responsibility.
We offer individuals and communities the opportunity to open up a new line of business for themselves and their families and thus change their economic situation sustainably.
We work together with local organizations and those responsible in villages and slum communities to ensure that the help offered fits the infrastructure of the respective village, because every community has different needs.
