About us

Our background

,Humanitarian support for people in poverty and need’ is the name of the foundation that was founded at the end of December 2014. There are people in poverty and need in all countries of the world – in different forms and with different consequences. 

We want to be close to people. We consciously decide which projects we support and thus help these people to alleviate their needs.

We concentrate on a few projects, are personally involved and all donors are informed “close to action”. A “hands-on and personal experience” foundation. The focus is on supporting children and women.

Our Vision

“Give Children a Future” is the vision of the Board of the HUMAN Foundation. We have a stand for focused education, equal opportunities, peace and freedom, tolerance and strengthening the community.

We set up this foundation out of gratitude because we have achieved a lot in our own lives and live a happy life, but also assume social responsibility towards our fellow human beings. With this foundation we want to make a contribution to people in poverty and need who are not allowed to live above the poverty line. May future generations continue the foundation in this spirit.

Our Mission

Together with our local partner organizations in India, Nepal and Nigeria, we develop the appropriate strategies and programs. In close cooperation with the local and central government agencies of the countries, we implement the measures with local employees. In this way, we not only support children and women, but also create jobs for the local population.

Through intensive and direct contact with the families and village leaders, we know the needs of people in need and can respond to them with our wide range of relief measures.

We use clearly defined criteria to measure the effectiveness of our actions.

“Our” local Teams

Staff in the Keshwa Child Welfare Center, India

Here you see the Center Manager Hariom Tiwari with some employees of our core team of the Creation India Society. Without their dedicated and competent commitment, we would not be able to do this work successfully. Thank you very much!

Teachers at Shree Shelri Drugdra School Saldang, Nepal

Our school coordinator Pema Wangyal Lama with some teachers from the school in Saldang. We appreciate and admire this phantastic commitment and their great experience in this difficult environment in the Upper Dolpo at 4,000 meters above sea level!

Teachers at Amuro/Mgbom School, Nigeria

Because of the corona pandemic, schools in Nigeria are actually closed. But there are currently final exams in September, which is why some of the more than 60 teachers work in the school. They deserve our great respect for working in an extremely poor infrastructure.

Our Supporters

‘You cannot help everyone,’ says the narrow-minded and does not help anyone. This quote comes from the writer Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach.

These projects would not be possible without the financial help of our great supporters and the many children and youths, women and adults would not have the perspective of looking into the future with new opportunities that would otherwise be not possible for them.

We want to express this gratitude by making two pages available to our sponsors. A site for smaller companies, the self-employed and organizations and a site with quotes from some private, explaining why they support the HUMAN Foundation. The many other supporters not mentioned here are, of course, just as valuable to us.


With your help we make people’s eyes light up

Only with your support we can sustainably develop and support the children across generations in order to enable them to lead a self-determined life.
