Key Values

  1. Active involvement is central:
    Precondition for the support of a child is the willingness to follow his/her school education with dedication.
  2. Giving back:
    Everyone receiving help from H.E.L.G.O. should in return support the social work of the organization to the best of his/her abilities.
  3. Help to help themselves:
    Our goal is to enable the children to take life into their own hands without depriviation.
  4. Quality before quantity:
    We only admit new children if we can take care of them in a personal way.
  5. Administration and social work are connected:
    With the exception of the financial accounting all administrative staff is also directly involved into the work with the children.
  6. 100% of donations go towards the local social work:
    All administrative tasks of the German organization H.E.L.G.O. e.V. are done on a honorary basis keeping the overheads to a bare minimum (2009 and 2010: 2.8%, 2011: 2.4%, 2012: 3.1%).
