Help – Turning Adversity Into Opportunity

For 35 years, “Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe” has been committed to providing people in need with fast, effective and sustainable aid worldwide. Help has been active in Serbia since 1999, with the goal of empowering socially vulnerable members of society to develop their own potential through the creation of jobs and income

Help provides entrepreneurs with start-up grants and business training to create self-employment and income opportunities. And it has done so with great success, as a 2016 impact analysis shows: 74 per cent of small and micro businesses supported by Help between 2004 and 2013 are operational and generate income, while many have created additional jobs.

In the past years, Help also ran successful programmes aimed at poverty reduction and the social inclusion of marginalised groups like Roma. In 2013, Help initialised projects with the goal of reintegrating former convicts into society. The results are very positive and greatly appreciated by the supported communities.

Help also provides emergency relief, e.g. during the 2014 Balkan floods and during the migrant crisis on the Balkan route in 2015/16. Within German Cooperation, Help expanded local capacities to assist migrants in Serbia through the reconstruction of two transit centres. Help also improved healthcare for refugees and the local population through the rehabilitation of medical facilities and by providing medical equipment and vehicles.

With its experience and capacities, Help is a strong partner for putting Corporate Social Responsibility into practice, both in Serbia and Germany. We are a long-standing member and partner of the AHK. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
