What your support achieves – throughout the world

South Sudan

In order to make peace a reality

South Sudan lies in ruins because of the civil war. Many villages are destroyed. And the smell of burnt fields hangs in the air. Children suffer from war traumas and the unstable situation of the country. The Muhaba Children's Center offers these children a roof over their heads, warm food and school education. The Children's Center Muhaba exists only thanks to people like you. With your donation you can help more children to make the dream of peace and a secure future come true.

Who we are

Mission 21 operates internationally to bring about a fairer world. Since 1815, we have been sending out a message of hope based on the Christian faith and human rights. All over the world, we work to promote peace, improve education and healthcare, and to support agriculture and livelihood security. We focus our efforts on women and girls in particular. In 20 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America, we are involved in over 100 projects in the fields of long-term development cooperation, emergency relief and reconstruction. We work jointly with over 70 partner churches and partner organisations across the globe, and we engage in professional exchange and cooperation at eye level. In Switzerland, Mission 21 carries out educational work and contributes to interfaith understanding. Mission 21 receives support from the Protestant Church in Switzerland (PCS) and from the Agency for Development and Cooperation of the Swiss Confederation (SDC). Mission 21 is recognised as a charitable organisation and is certified by ZEWO (the Swiss organisation for transparency in charitable foundations) and EduQua (the Swiss quality label for further education institutions).
