Together for more human dignity

Sign of Hope is a faith-based Christian human rights and aid organisation. For 40 years, we have been committed to helping people in need and distress around the world, focusing on the dignity of each individual. Our vision is a world in which one's place of birth no longer determines a life in dignity. To this end, we provide humanitarian assistance in the form of emergency and disaster relief, development cooperation and human rights work. We are currently active in over 20 countries.

Why donate regularly?

As a supporting partner, you lay the foundation of our mission. With your valuable ongoing donation, you ensure that we:

  • are able to provide immediate emergency relief in acute emergencies caused by wars and conflicts, the effects of climate change, natural disasters, or the Corona pandemic.
  • can plan our aid projects for the long term and support people sustainably. They enable our work to have an impact and help people help themselves.
  • are also able to fund projects in crises that are no longer in the focus of the public.
  • can provide our own contribution in order to receive a multiple of this in project funding from public donors such as the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
