A future for people and nature
Our work is focused around 6 ambitious goals with people at the center
WWF’s work has evolved from saving species and landscapes to addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Recognizing that the problems facing our planet are increasingly more complex and urgent, we have refined the way in which we work around an ambitious new strategy. Our new strategy puts people at the center and organizes our work around six key areas: forests, marine, freshwater, wildlife, food and climate. By linking these six areas in an integrated approach, we can better leverage our unique assets and direct all our resources to protecting vulnerable places, species and communities worldwide. People are at the center of our work because together we can change the trajectory of the threats to nature, and help ensure nature’s ability to provide—for the sake of every living thing, including ourselves.
We work globally, with every sector, at every level
To accomplish our ambitious goals, we work to educate and influence people into making sustainable choices and decisions, including those who work in business and make decisions around the use of natural resources, and those who work in government and set policy that impacts nature. We work globally at every level—in the field and in the local community, from the halls of government to the global marketplace. One of WWF’s strengths is our ability to engage stakeholders—in business, civil society, and academia—in partnerships to devise innovative solutions to the issues that challenge us. Working together with 1.1 million supporters , WWF’s partners, projects and experts are making a difference in creating a healthy future for our planet. www.worldwildlife.org

We had a dream… Gaia, Victor and the hearts of dedicated people had a dream to open a school for underprivileged children in South of India (Puttaparthi). Even though there were a lot of obstacles the dream started to manifest. Over 8 years a magnificent self-sustainable building has been created which nurtures 210 children with free education, uniforms, food and support. The future focus with this project is totally green and in balance with Mother Earth. With this concept in mind it educates the Indian children and whoever interacts with the school.
Hand in Hand was established in 2000 in response to the devastation of a large area in Orissa, a state in the north eastern part of India, caused by a cyclone and by a tsunami. Later the same region was also afflicted by drought and famine as well as by floods. Due to the high demand of humanitarian aid after the first catastrophes, which killed thousands of people and left millions homeless without any local infrastructures, an independent group of people of different nationalities and beliefs created the organisation Hand in Hand. We now have branches of our organisation in Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and, recently, also in France. The head office of the charitable, state independent and non profitable organisation (NGO, NPO) is in Vienna, Austria. Peter van Breukelen is the President. The non-denominational and politically independent charity organisation Hand in Hand assists the poorest of the poor in the underdeveloped regions of India. Many needy people receive not only medical primary health care free of charge, but also access to educational institutions. Local welfare organisations guarantee through their intervention the continuity of long term projects initiated and financed by Hand in Hand.
