The goal of the Happel Foundation is to support sustainably. This includes alleviating poverty by promoting sustainable improvement in the life circumstances of its beneficiaries. Thus, their economic and social development needs to improve permanently.
To this end, the Happel Foundation follows the principle of “help for self-help”. This means that the recipients of the funding are actively involved in the problem-solving and demonstrate the corresponding drive themselves.
In its actions, the Happel Foundation has two focal points of support. On the one hand, the Happel Foundation is expanding its activities in developing countries, focussing on Asia and Africa. On the other hand, the foundation supports people in Switzerland (mainly central Switzerland) who are in distress or disadvantaged in their social and economic development through no fault of their own.
