Our goal

A world without poverty

Preventing, fighting and alleviating poverty – more than that, ending poverty everywhere and for all: That is Caritas’ central mission to which it has been dedicated since its foundation in 1901. The goal – a world without poverty – always remains the same – but the ways to get there change according to needs.
