More about: PETER HESSE


The Peter-Hesse-Foundation "SOLIDARITY IN PARTNERSHIP for ONE world in diversity" was created on December 7, 1983 in Düsseldorf, Germany, to sustain private initiatives aiming at giving deprived children in Haiti a chance. In the course of the years, a learning-process led to a widening and deepening of the engagement. The Foundation's full name is significant for its program today.
Informally, Peter Hesse is engaged in Haiti since the beginning of 1981 - at first privately, later as a German Foundation with the help of the "Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (DWHH)". From November 17, 1988, the Peter-Hesse-Foundation is formally recognized as a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) by the State of Haiti. After a 5-year learning process, the Engagement concentrated on Montessori preschool teacher-training and on help to open preschools.
Based on what was learned in Haiti, the engagement widened and deepened through a global consciousness towards socio-political fields - reinforced by "inner learning". At first children's chances for their own development in ONE world in diversity were in the foreground. This, however, widened to the field of social, ecological and economical world-wide development for a world in balance.
