Our vision: Helping people to help themselves

Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen was a German social reformer...

...who wanted to alleviate the serious economic and social problems in his environment.

He was convinced that only help for self-help could solve people's problems. In his spirit, we support women and children to lead a sustainable and financially independent life

Our Principles

The fight against poverty in Central and Eastern Europe is at the heart of our work. Our focus is on social and educational projects for women and children, as these groups of people are often the most vulnerable and educational measures in childhood have the greatest long-term effect.

Our Helping Hands

Our projects are managed by volunteers and employees of RBI in Vienna and throughout the RBI network. As a result, the projects are optimally positioned in administrative, financial and legal terms. Administrative costs are thus kept to a minimum and all donations entrusted to us go directly to the projects and our protégés.
