" Right after any horizon, a new one appears ... "
Our services are not limited to any specific area or non-profit sector. We work globally, even in remote or sensitive areas and in all circumstances. Our team of co-workers has a wide range of experiences and where necessary we are able to implement external specialists necessary for the assignment. We have done, and still are involved in projects in the following countries: (just to name a few) Pakistan, Afghanistan, Haïti, Moldova, Romania, Sri Lanka, Kenya, United States, UK, Bosnia i Herzegovina, Uganda, Tanzania, Ukraine, Albania, Germany, Switzerland, South Sudan, South Africa, some Middle East countries and more.
INTERNATIONAL AID In many parts of the world the living standard is far below the Western world. Also, often we do not realize that this is equally the case in many countries within Europe. Countries like Ukraine, Moldova and Albania have a long way to go in terms improving the daily living conditions of their citizens. Housing, sanitation, nutrition, food distribution and clean drinking water are but some of the issues requiring urgent attention. Other needs include projects to stimulate job creation, to support children’s homes and to take care of all forms of education. Those among the poorest, the disabled and senior citizens are often in need of particular attention.
MEDICAL RESOURCES AND SUPPORT For many people in this world medical resources are often still out of reach or simply not unaffordable. Providing support and access to sound medical equipment and skilled medical staff saves lives. Although many NGO's and charities focus on this particular area of humanitarian aid, still the majority of spending's by Governmental bodies like UN, UNHCR, UNDP, Doctors without Borders, Red Cross and many other go to one way or another medical treatment, support or prevention. We have been involved in several building (renovating + new) projects and extensive programs to supply medical equipment as well as provide vaccination and prevention strategies.
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT Our world is increasingly experiencing pressure due to the growing need for natural resources. Slowly but surely our planet’s natural resources are being exhausted and the increase of the worlds temperature due to the enormous amount of CO2 coming in to the atmosphere urge the world to take immediate action. There is an increasing awareness of those issues and the possibilities provided by alternative energy sources such as; Solar, Wind, Bio and Hydro energy. In the decades to come, these new energy sources will be crucial. The protection of our planet’s ecosystem and endangered species are other topics requiring high attention and awareness.
MICRO FINANCE Extending small credit loans can help people to build small business initiatives, to create jobs and to give themselves and others access to basic needs. By encouraging self-sufficiency an entire community will be able to reap benefits and grow towards sustainability.
RECONSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT Across the world reconstruction and development projects are taking place in former war zones (Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria etc.) but also as the result of erosion due to drought or extensive logging of the rain forest (parts of Africa, Asia and south America). Extensive reconstruction projects are necessary in areas shattered by earthquakes (Haiti, Turkey, Italy, Philippines and even New Zealand) or flooding's (Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, etc.) after Hurricanes. At times, entire communities have to be rebuilt like for example after the tsunami in Asia. Countless projects have been initiated with the support of international and local organizations and governments.This picture of Serajevo in Bosnia i Herzegovina shows that more then 15 years after the war still large parts Mostar and Sarajevo are nothing more then ruins.
DISASTER RELIEF Our world is regularly faced with floods, earthquakes, and life threatening natural disasters. (see also above at International Aid and Reconstruction and Development) Recent examples are Haiti, China, Nepal and Pakistan. In the first weeks immediately following a disaster, the need for clean drinking water and shelters, amongst others, is great. Also, after the first basic aid has been provided, there remains a great need for longer-term relief in various areas. Careful coordination, transport and logistics are required to ensure this aid reaches those places where it is most needed.
EDUCATION A sound education is still the basis of positive future development. Providing education at all levels goes a long way towards the fight to alleviate poverty. By offering vocational training to youth, they are less likely to become involved in criminal activities, they are given the tools to care for themselves, and they become active participants in rebuilding their nation. Also, besides the need for adequate training facilities and resources, another area demanding urgent attention is job creation.
