THP programs

The basic principle of our work

People whose lives are directly affected by hunger and poverty are not considered to be a problem, rather, those people play a key role in identifying, planning and realizing sustainable solutions. [mehr]

"In the local VCA (Vision-Commitment-Action)-Workshops of THP, the majority of participants are women and they become empowered to lead their lifes independently, to take action and to influence their communities as self-responsible members. As such, they jointly find their own ways out of chronic hunger and external material dependence. THP joins this process locally, where the people are at home."

Therese Gerber-F├╝rst, Management Consultant, has been supporting THP for more than 10 years
