Our vision

Our actions and their impact are more defining than ever in this globalized world. To enable the worldwide community to live together peacefully, we believe in the need to form an international community based on solidarity, mutual respect, responsibility and understanding.

Our goal

By working with our international project partners, we aim at an intercultural exchange on eye level. Our work, paired with the engagement of the local people, opens possibilities for personal development and an improvement in living conditions for the local people. In Germany, we sensitize our members to the unequal distribution of privilege and the mutual interdependencies that exist in our world.

Our path

On the north side of the island of Idjwi in eastern Congo, we are planning, with our project partners, to extend an existing hydroelectric power station in order to expand the local power supply. By offering an affordable access to electrical power, we aim to strengthen the economical and social development of the region.
