Our mission

We help less privileged people and victims of natural or man-made disasters improve their quality of life. We achieve this by supporting organizations that implement programs we believe are relevant and appropriate.

Our approach

We seek partnerships with organizations that place beneficiaries at the center of their work.

We work with organizations that apply the highest standards of project management.

We build long-term partnerships.

We encourage our partner organizations to work together to achieve greater effectiveness.

We support Disaster Relief initiatives, but our main focus is on Disaster Risk Reduction.

We consider Disaster Risk Reduction a critical element of every sustainable development program.
