We promote and support public health, development,
and cultural exchanges within the framework of human rights.
Part of our
uniqueness is that we travel overland to gain real exposure to people's
lives. Overland travel is a reality-check for anyone aspiring to do
development work. It’s the only way to get a clear understanding of
people’s conditions, needs, and aspirations, literally
At the Foundation, we’ve always
tried to be involved and committed global citizens. We feel we do real
development work, on the ground and direct. Reaching people individually
and directly. The Nobel winner, V.S. Naipaul, often writes about
“restorating a sense of human possibilities.” It may be too ambitious a
goal, but we can aim for nothing less.
We are building a network of
partner organizations that we visited during our travels. These
partnerships are founded on trust and the confidence that long-term
solutions can be reached. The Foundation does not seek to impose projects
on the partner organizations, but on the contrary, to learn from them.
We provide technical assistance and resources for these organizations to
strengthen their capabilities and aim for an evolution from a local model
to policy development.
