People in Need
We are a non-governmental, non-profit organization founded on the ideals of humanism, freedom, equality and solidarity. We consider human dignity and freedom to be fundamental values. We believe that people anywhere in the world should have the right to make decisions about their lives and to share the rights expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We are part of Alliance2015, a strategic network of European non-governmental organisations engaged in humanitarian aid and development projects. This collaboration increases effectiveness, both in working in the target countries and in campaigns aimed at influencing the attitudes of politicians and the general public in Europe.
After the years of aspirations, PIN is excited to join the Start Network community. We work closely with many existing Start Network members and the full membership will allow us to join hands in the early response to various emergencies. As we have seen on many occasions, donors community tends to act with significant delays to the situation which are not hitting the headlines, and this is exactly where we see the Start Fund contributions as indispensable. We are also interested to exchange more on the community-led innovation partnership, which has the potential to further contextualise and localise the ways the aid is delivered.
