What we perceive depends on the observer.
What we receive depends on the recipient.
Who knows best but the locals!
Weltweit – Gesellschaft zur Förderung lokaler Initiativen e.V. was founded in 2014 by an international group of people of whom most live in Germany and share an expertise in international cooperation.
We aim to organize the technical, financial and logistical support that is available in the industrialized world and make it accessible to local initiatives in the poorer regions of the planet. We believe that those who are conscious about their problems have also the biggest potential to solve them.
We offer support, we don’t offer solutions. We acknowledge the fact that problems are multifaceted and complex. Our aim is to join findings from the natural as well as the social sciences to offer a trans-disciplinary support. Hence, we want to create a network of ambitious people who join their particular skills in order to give holistic assistance to local initiatives that aim to ensure the well being of humans and nature in the most vulnerable areas of the world.
We plead for the human right of Self-Determination, and that includes the right to set the priorities, todetermine the method and to execute the measures of one’s own community development.
