ur Foundation is a nonprofit organization and has been registered since 1996 in the heart of Europe, Luxembourg. We fund small projects (average range of 5,000-7,000 Euros) in all continents except Europe. These projects, proposed by local communities, usually associative, - are seed funds to initiate income generating activities or to address basic needs. Social, geographic and climatic circumstances may have prevented these beneficiary groups, usually living in rural areas, from receiving any aid including financial. They are forgotten groups of our life time. Yet, our organization got known thanks to the considerable progress in information technologies including the availability of internet services in remote areas.

Our monitoring expertise especially in supporting small scale projects is a comparative advantage and has proven to be effective.

Beneficiaries were able to stay in their villages, regions and countries. They acquired the additional skills they were looking for and became aware of a solidarity mechanism in which other human beings, living in other parts of the world, would support them with to build their lives and a better future.

The aid demand keeps on rising. Our Foundation is looking for other sources of funds and contributions that will enable dynamic and entrepreneur women and men to create income generating projects allowing their children to access education and health services.

Would you want to be one of these contributors?

Due to the fact that our organization is officially registered in Europe as a philanthropic foundation, you will able to receive, if necessary, contribution receipts as part of the fiscal legislation of European countries. It also allows you to access our annual reports for the past fifteen years at Mémorial the Official Journal of Luxembourg.

We remain at your disposal for any further queries.
