People in Need Worldwide

People in Need (PIN) is a Czech non-governmental, non-profit organization that provides relief aid, development assistance and human rights support in over 30 countries.

PIN was established in 1992 by a group of Czech war correspondents who, seeing the humanitarian needs grow around them, were no longer satisfied with relaying information about ongoing conflicts and began to send out aid. PIN gradually became established as a professional humanitarian organization that strives to provide aid in troubled regions and support adherence to human rights around the world.

Throughout the 25 years of its existence, People in Need has become one of the biggest non-profit organizations in Central Europe. In addition to humanitarian aid and human rights, it now also targets education and helps people living in social exclusion.

We are part of Alliance2015, a strategic network of seven European non-governmental organizations engaged in humanitarian aid and development projects. This collaboration increases effectivity both in working in the target countries and in campaigns aimed at influencing the attitudes of politicians and the general public in Europe.
