People can do much more than they generally think

The idea of determination is a pivotal element in our work. We are firmly convinced that each individual has a high potential, which often has not come out yet. This is particularly true for those living in Africa or India, who often grow up in an atmosphere of resignation and who merely live from one day to the next and without any plans for the future. Our Projekt Hunger does not provide a bucket of money. Our trainings are intended to make people become active themselves and to develop some self-initiative. As a first step we lead them away from resignation and towards a vision. After that the most important thing is to strengthen their self-determination so that they will be able to say: 'I am the key!'
