Who we are

Guidelines for our work.

Ever since its inception in 1981, “Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe” has been committed to providing people in need with prompt, sustainable and long-term aid and support. The guiding principles of our work are based on the areas of responsibility stated in our Articles of Association and are specified in detail in the vision and mission statement of our aid organisation.

We envision a world without misery, poverty and social inequality. Our goal is to enable people to take charge of their own life and live independently in dignity, peace and security.

In line with its principle of assisting people towards self-reliance, Help works together with people in need, irrespective of their gender, age, political views or religious beliefs, by providing immediate aid in the aftermath of catastrophes and by making sustainable contributions to reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts in all areas of life. Our underlying long-term objective is to reduce the vulnerability of communities to new conflicts or extreme natural disasters. People and the preservation of human dignity are the focus of everything we do.

In 2015, Help was involved in 110 projects in 22 project countries around the globe with a project budget of €27.2 million. Expenses for PR activities, advertising as well as general management and administration accounted for 5.2 percent.
