“Perspektive Hoffnungsbrücke” is a non profit organization founded by Simone & Arnd Weil in December 2016. The name “Bridge of Hope” reflects the basic idea of connecting communities from two different parts of the world. Hope will be transferred in both directions and show new perspectives to both worlds. We support educational programs in developing countries in order to help young people to build their dreams. But we can also learn and benefit a lot from the faith of the poor and transport this hope back to Germany – a hope far beyond material wealth.
We’re Christian – our hope is in Jesus. “Bridge of Hope” also means there is a transfer of hope in and beyond this world. Our believe teaches us that there is no hopeless situation – never. It inspires us to bring hope and long term perspectives to people in challenged circumstances as we follow Jesus’ example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed.
“Stiftung Perspektive Hoffnungsbrücke” was founded as Foundation Trustee under the umbrella of the World Vision Stiftung in Friedrichsdorf / Germany.
We have selected World Vision as partner for many of the project activities because of World Vision’s global experience in development and local presence with professional project leaders and team members in Tanzania and all around the globe. For more information please visit us on the World Vision website here. Or watch the following video introducing the way World Vision works with communities.
The board of the foundation (“Kuratorium”) consists of 3 members:
- Simone Weil
- Arnd Weil
- Christoph Hilligen, General Manager World Vision Deutschland
“Perspektive Hoffnungsbrücke e.V.” was founded in 2021 in order to have an agile and transparent NGO to handle new donations and eliminating any administration costs in Germany. 100% of the donations will be transferred to the respective projects – there are no admin costs from Perspektive Hoffnungsbrücke e.V.
