Make the world a little bit better with us!
It concerns us all!
We all live in a globalized world and especially us, the “rich” countries benefit more and more from the poorer and above all developing countries. Dumping wages, hardly any workers’ rights, yes tw. not even the most basic human rights and ruthless exploitation are in many cases the basis of our prosperity. Let’s give something back together and help people in these countries to lead a dignified life. That’s what we’re doing with HELPVETICA!

What good is money if not to make the world a better place?
Our main focus is Africa, why ?
In due course, when we have grown also thanks to your help, we will devote ourselves to worldwide aid projects. But as long as our budget is limited, we will first turn to the continent that needs our help the most.
Latin America, Asia and Africa were colonized and exploited by European states for centuries. While in Latin America and Asia the states were able to grow and consolidate themselves and establish stable legal systems after gaining independence, in many places on the African continent devastating, partly feudalistic conditions still prevail. Absolute patriarchy, violence, corruption, inadequate legal security, religious constraints and undemocratic structures dominate everyday life in most African countries.
Another major problem is the population explosion in Africa, which is unfortunately accompanied by a very high infant mortality rate. Contraceptives are not or rarely used for various reasons. The majority of men reject contraception, women usually cannot afford the pill and reject abortions strictly, often for religious reasons. Often the women do not know how the child will be nourished and raised later.
Lastly, it is again Africa that has the most people infected with HIV. Poverty and patent laws make access to life-sustaining drugs difficult for the African population.
It becomes pretty clear that if you want to help, you actually have almost only one option and help at least a few people in the beleaguered Africa as well as possible. One can hardly imagine the suffering associated with these crises…at least until one has been there and seen it with one’s own eyes.
We can’t change all that with “HELPVETICA” just like that, but we want to contribute to it slowly changing itself from the inside. And this is exactly where we start with our projects.
Education and safety from abuse, forced marriage and female genital mutilation in Africa, access to fresh water and to medicines is our contribution to success.

In fact, you shouldn’t feel sorry for someone at all, it’s better to help them.
