As a non-profit organization, we finance our projects exclusively through donations. For as little as €35, you can help people in Southeast Asia lead a better and more self-determined life.

Join now!

We forward 100% of all donations to our partner organizations for microloans and to promote education. We are only able to do this because the annual contributions of our sustaining members cover the administrative costs incurred and because we are actively supported by volunteers. More sustaining members mean more opportunities for us to expand our work in Southeast Asia.

Why join?

The more sustaining members, the more opportunities we have to visit partner organizations, learn about situations on the ground, and expand collaborations.

Take part in the decision-making: As a sustaining member, you also have the chance to actively participate in decision-making at the general meetings.
Stay informed: Our newsletter informs you about current developments. As a supporting member, you will always have the good feeling that you are contributing to a financially independent, secure and self-determined future for people in Southeast Asia with your annual membership fee of only 30 € per year.

Since 2017, we have been registered with boost, which has since merged with We Can Help.  We are impressed with how well this program works and how many people have supported us through their online purchases.

On We Can Help you will find over 1700 participating companies from many categories (travel, food, books, etc.). They pay a commission for each purchase referred and 90% of that revenue goes to charities like us.
By ordering through We Can Help, you support our initiative by going to an online store through this link before each purchase and then ordering as usual. This way, we will automatically be credited with a donation amounting to an average of 4% of the purchase value.
