About Us

A Double Mission

NOIVA is a non-profit foundation founded in Winterthur in 2010 and currently active in the Middle East, with a focus on Jordan. We pursue two main goals with our work, namely ...

Humanitarian Aid

We help in a very practical way. We meet people in need and look for solutions with them. With our programs - education for children, medical services, & courses and employment opportunities for adults - we seek to give hope and broaden horizons. We regularly organize assignments for volunteers. Everyone is welcome to invest their skills and empathy in those in need.

NOIVA is convinced that we as individuals can do more than we realize. Personal sympathy and practical helpfulness in one's own environment are therefore central tenets of the foundation.

Reconciliation Work

We invest in friendships and create a platform in our projects for people to experience reconciliation. We are committed to breaking down prejudices, healing and reconciling the past, and creating initiatives that bring people together.

Humanitäre Hilfe

Wir helfen ganz praktisch. Wir begegnen Menschen in Not und suchen mit Ihnen nach Lösungen. Mit unseren Angeboten (Bildung für Kinder, Medizin, & Kursangebote für Erwachsene) wollen wir Zukunftsperspektiven ermöglichen. Wir organisieren regelmässig Einsätze für freiwillige Mitarbeitende. Jeder ist willkommen, seine Fähigkeiten und Empathie in Notleidende zu investieren.

NOIVA ist überzeugt, dass wir als Einzelne mehr ausrichten können, als uns bewusst ist. Persönliche Anteilnahme und praktische Hilfsbereitschaft im eigenen Umfeld sind deshalb zentrale Anliegen der Stiftung.

Versöhnungsarbeit

Wir investieren in Freundschaften und schaffen in unseren Projekten eine Plattform, dass Menschen mit Versöhnung in Berührung kommen. Wir setzen uns dafür ein, dass Vorurteile abgebaut werden, die Vergangenheit geheilt und versöhnt werden kann und Initiativen entstehen, die Menschen zusammenführt.

Our Values

In all our projects and initiatives, the reconciliation of the people in the Middle East is at the forefront. Injustice cannot be undone. The past cannot be changed. We are convinced that Christian values such as helpfulness, love of neighbor and reconciliation between nations, peoples and religious communities are of central importance for moving forward. Wherever such values are lived out and put into practice, there is hope for peaceful coexistence. In this sense, we also understand the slogan "Shaping Worlds of Peace": Whatever we do, it should contribute to a more peaceful world.

Our Culture

We are fair, authentic and appreciative. We treat all people as equals. We preserve the dignity of each individual.

Our Missions

We are not primarily looking for "professionals" for our missions, but for people who desire to give away some of their resources - time, energy, skills, empathy - to those in need.

Our Finances

We are committed to the responsible and efficient use of donations and keep administrative costs low - as much money as possible goes directly to those in need.

Our Vision

It takes more than humanitarian intervention. Long-term solutions and reconciliation are needed.
