Pharos is a charitable non-profit organization with two general aims. We want to relief distress of people living in poverty. Poverty and social vulnerability are always consequences of a complex set of causes and circumstances. Pharos as a small charitable organization cannot change them, but is able to make life more bearable and human.
The projects are funded in general through private donations. Pharos is offering its donors a lively and very personal first hand reporting and an unusual degree of transparency in how the donated money is used. Administration costs are approx. 5% of spent donated money.
Overview of current humanitarian projects in Bosnia-Herzegovina:
• Civil and social rights for people living in extreme poverty
• School lunch project
• Agricultural development project in a war-torn remote area in Eastern Bosnia
• Human accommodation for homeless civil war victims
• Sponsorship for deprived children
The second aim is to strengthen the evolution of a democratic political culture in transition societies through education.
The Pharos expert team has been working in this area since 1998 and has been focusing its work on the region of Southeast Europe. Its services are fee-based and all education projects are financed exclusively through project funding provided by donor agencies.
For other net participants we can offer expert guidance through trained staff, give an expert opinion, procure expert information and establish new contacts in the field of our work.
