About us

Humission e.V.

Humission was founded in 2017. As a young NGO, we try to form a link between development work and innovative approaches towards it. The very centre of our interest is hereby the human being. Therefore, our projects in Malawi aim towards the pillars of development: income, health and education. Our goal is to strengthen the people locally at the very heart of lacking communities, in order to be no longer needed one day. Get to know our executive board and the organization itself.

 

Humission Ltd

Humission e.V. is registered as a limited by guarantee (a kind of non-profit company) locally in Malawi. This allows us to open bank accounts and to sign proper employment contracts with our local workers with social security. Furthermore, this is also the basis for our new Agriculture Project. The local director in Malawi is Pascally Tambala. Pascally is the first student who was supported by the Student Financing Project and is now helping to build up the local organization. Thus, after three years, the ‘Student Financing’ project is now bearing its first fruits.

gGmbH Tikondane Kaffee
