About the Organization
The People in Need organization was established in 1992 by a group of Czech
war correspondents who were no longer satisfied with merely relaying
information about ongoing conflicts and began sending out aid. It gradually
became established as a professional humanitarian organization striving to
provide aid in troubled regions and support adherence to human rights around
the world.

Throughout the 25 years of its existence, People in Need has become one of the
biggest non-profit organizations in Central Europe. In addition to
humanitarian aid and human rights, it now also targets education and helps
people living in social exclusion.

We are part of Alliance2015, a strategic network of seven European non-
governmental organizations engaged in humanitarian aid and development
projects. This collaboration increases effectivity both in working in the
target countries and in campaigns aimed at influencing the attitudes of
politicians and the general public in Europe.
