We are a group of independent organizations based in many countries on 5 continents. We are all non-political, non- profit, secular and linked by a common aim – to help or rehabilitate people to a better, more productive life.
Founded by aid workers who were disillusioned by the waste and bureaucracy often seen in international aid, we started in Cambodia in 1998. The aim was to deliver effective, sustainable programs directly to those in need, with minimal bureaucracy, and with transparency at every stage.
Working with people of different ethnicities and cultures, we try not to dictate our own agendas and values, but to listen, and help them find their own solutions.
We are run by volunteers, so administration costs are kept to a bare minimum, with 98% of donations going directly to support our work.
