We fight against global hunger and for sustainable food security. This incorporates the promotion of agriculture suited to local conditions, access to clean water, the provision of modern, environmentally friendly energy and the improvement of health and education.
Our actions are dictated by the principles of equality, inviolable rights and self-determination for all. The people with whom we work are partners striving towards social change. We treat them with respect, solidarity and compassion.
Our principle: "helping People to help themselves"
Our goal: improving living conditions in a sustainable way
Our actions aim for the sustainable improvement of opportunities in life for future generations too, in a healthy environment and a fair society. Our goal is the same as that of many people working in development cooperation: to reach the day when development cooperation is no longer needed, because people will be able to help themselves sufficiently.

More than 120 humanitarian organizations and United Nations agencies issued a joint appeal today urging the world to raise their voices and call for an end to the Syria crisis and to the suffering endured by millions of civilians.
