Eva-Maria Thurnhofer Foundation Partnerships Lead

Welthungerhilfe highly values our partnerships with foundations, who are making invaluable contributions towards achieving Welthungerhilfe’s vision: a world where everyone can lead a self-determined life in dignity and justice, free from hunger and poverty.

We are proud to be working with foundations from around the world, ranging from small family foundations to some of the largest worldwide. Together, we work to ensure that every person has access to adequate food and clean water. Our projects range from supporting small-scale farmers hand in hand with local communities to providing emergency relief during natural disasters and conflicts.

You can support projects that align with your values and interests through your foundation. We work closely with you to ensure that your financial support will achieve maximum impact. We are committed to transparency and keeping our foundation partners updated on the progress of our projects.

With your support, we can work together to fight hunger in the world and improve the lives of millions of people. Contact us today to learn how your foundation can make a difference.

Our programmes’ core tasks include:

Green colleges for a sustainable future

The twelve “Green Colleges” that Welthungerhilfe has set up together with local partner organisations are training centres for sustainable professions. Training is being provided to 1,500 young people who would otherwise have little chance of finding an apprenticeship. The majority of people under 25 in Uganda are unemployed. The reason: many young people are forced to drop out of school because they or their families can no longer afford the school fees. They therefore do not have the necessary qualifications to undertake an apprenticeship – and are thus denied the prospect of a life free from hunger and poverty.

Building schools in Myanmar

Promoting education and fighting poverty: Welthungerhilfe is offering people a brighter future by setting up schools. The vocational training they provide gives people the prospect of an autonomous and secure future. These activities have also been made possible by the generous support of foundations.

Emergency Assistance in Syria and Turkey

Several earthquakes shook southeastern Türkiye, near the border with Syria, on February 6, 2023. Over 50,000 people lost their lives. The World Health Organization has called it the region's worst natural disaster in a century – more than 26 million people need humanitarian aid.

People in the affected regions urgently need support. Above all, they need a secure supply of food and drinking water. Those who have lost their homes need blankets, tents and heating fuel. In addition to material aid, those affected need psychological support, especially traumatized children.

We are on the ground in Türkiye and Syria supporting the survivors of the earthquake disaster with essential relief supplies.
