Where we help
In this moment our main target is in India and Africa. The Life to Share is mainly working with Dioceses of the Catholic Church. The projects come in through the project managers with detailed cost calculations, plans, pictures and definition of recipients. There will be documentations about the project from the beginning til the end.
To whom our help gos
Daily we get the news about natural and starving desasters. Daily wars around the globe, pursuits, refugees, expulsions and raping. We are conscious that many our cheep and mass products are on the backs of children. They are exploited in childrens work. About one third of mankind lives under circumstances they are inhumane. We help especially young people and children because they are the future of the world.
Impact and achivement
On the country side in India women walk miles and miles – for water. They carry containers of 30 or 40 pounds home. They are exhausted but have only water for hours. But this water is not cleam. It contains germs and chemical remains – briefly it’s hazardous for their health. A remedy is digging bore wells and they don’t cost much: Just 500 Euros each. Self dertermined life begins with health. This people are not able to go to the doctor or clinics. They are far away and not affordable.
Current project in focus
This is a project of our hearts. Especially for girls ang young women the life in slums can be the hell. A good way to avoid this hopelessness is education. At the end of the class 30 young women and girls leave the professional training with a diploma as tailoress and a own sewing machine, Help us to realize this projects of our hearts. Every year one of two classes of tailoring that’s our aim.
