The Organization for Worldwide Education supports projects in the field of education in order to offer children who have limited access to education due to their place of residence, their financial background or insufficient educational resources, better prospects for the future. As an organization that promotes the dissemination and promotion of education worldwide, we have a responsibility towards people who have inadequate access to education. We also believe that good education can change people’s lives for the better and can contribute to social equality. Origins of injustice, fanaticism, conflicts and wars often lie in ignorance, lack of understanding and poor education systems. Through education, children grow up to be free-thinking, tolerant and independent adults, who have a perspective in life and a real chance to break the cycle of poverty.
With this in mind, we support educational projects and organizations that offer better educational opportunities through financial donations as well as taking on sponsorships of children in various countries.
Would you like to help too? We have thoroughly evaluated the organizations and projects that we present below in detail and deemed them useful and worthy of funding, as they not only offer direct help, but also improve the living conditions and future prospects of many people worldwide. You can make tax donations for some of the organizations we have presented.. Please also consult your tax advisor.
Do you have a worthwhile project in the field of education? Then we would be very happy if you could introduce it to us so that we can check whether it deserves support, corresponds to our principles and goals and if we can provide sufficient financial resources for this.
How to help
On our website we present projects that promote education, and especially children who have insufficient access to educational opportunities, the chance of good education – and thus the prospect of a better future.
School sponsorships, which are generally provided for a period of one year or more, enable a child to go to school and give students a perspective on life. Paying a fixed amount monthly, you finance the costs of the school materials associated with actively visiting the school, e.g. books, notebooks, pens, clean clothes and, depending on the project, even medical care for the child. You can find more information in the individual projects, which we have sorted by country and location, listed on the left for you.
In addition to long-term sponsorships and projects, we would also like to present the following interesting projects that enable you to help on a small scale, so that you can do something good with a limited budget or without a budget.
Many online shops and companies with web presence pay for other websites or search engines to place advertisements from them that link to their own website. For example, if a visitor comes to an online shop via such search engine and orders something there, the website or search engine operator who provided the link usually receives a commission, i.e. a portion of the profit.
The following fundraising projects have used this principle to raise money for charity. If you buy something from one of these websites from selected online retailers, the project operator receives a commission, which is then used for an aid project. You do not incur any additional costs as a result; you pay the same purchase price as if you had visited the website of the respective provider directly and “without detours”. So you can do something good while shopping online.
Clicks 4 Charity
Clicks 4 Charity supports Doctors without Borders, Oxfam Germany, Caritas international, Misereor, Zoologische Gesellschaft Frankfurt, Weltfriedensdienst, Welthungerhilfe, SOS-Kinderdörfer worldwide, Menschen für Menschen, foodwatch, Diakonie, Aktion Deutschland Hilft or Greenpeace.
Clicks 4 Charity has partnerships with a large number of well-known online-shops. To donate with your purchase through Clicks 4 Charity, simply select one of the charitable organizations on the website as the recipient of the donation and then go on to visit an online shop in which you would like to shop. You will be automatically redirected to the website of the selected online shop and can make your purchase as usual. Of course, this does not result in your purchase price becoming more expensive for you, but the donation is paid by the participating companies to Clicks 4 Charity and then forwarded to the aid organization of your choice.
Gift a Goat
Gift a goat e.V. started in 2006 with a project that should provide sustainable help, i.e. help for self-help for people in Uganda. With the collected donations and the goats donated, land was bought and a goat farm was built. The bred goats are given to needy families after they have gone through a training program.
In the meantime, the project is almost self-sufficient and only occasional external financial support is required. The principle of Gift a goat e.V. is not to create dependencies, but to help people help themselves. However, you can still give away symbolic goats for 25 euros each or donate any other amount. Your contribution comes from securing the goat farm for crop failures and other hardship cases or new projects of the association, i.e. the construction of a school or the development of a sustainable water supply.
Donation receipts and donation certificates can be issued automatically during online processing. You can also have the donor certificate issued under a different name and thus make another person happy.
The following websites are worth a visit if you would like to look for further projects or organizations that provide sustainable projects to help and which you can support:
