"He who has seen the poorest of this world feels rich enough to help."

Albert Schweitzer


The non-profit association Agape has been active in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Tibet and Romania since 1991. The focus is on disadvantaged children, for whom the association has built orphanages and schools in slums and rural areas. Our goal is to leave no one behind and to give children from poor families the opportunity of school education. In addition, the association is committed to ensuring that these children also have access to clean drinking water. We would be pleased if you would like to support us with a donation:
