‘Stories of humanity’
What people at foundations do for their fellow human beings.
82 million people are currently refugees. Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, talks to The Philanthropist in an exclusive interview about this unbelievable number. Among a population of 7,8 billion people, it ‘only’ comes to one percent. But isn’t that one percent too much?
Refugees are in a particularly exposed position. They become, completely involuntarily, dependent on the support of strangers. But it’s not just refugees who experience this. For example, in Switzerland, there are many people who fall through the net of private provision and state welfare – for entirely different reasons. Foundations recognise this and help in an agile and efficient way. They can also help with isolated cases for which the authorities and private businesses have no procedures or concepts in place. In this issue of our magazine, you can read about the diverse array of projects in our society to combat poverty as well as support children and culture. Be inspired by what people can achieve for others. No Christmas stories, just tales of life and standing together in
an extraordinary time that are appropriate for this time of the year.
The Philanthropist magazine devotes around 40 pages to a changing topic with a focus on practical foundation work.
Various aspects of the topic are highlighted in specialist articles, interviews with experts, background reports and features. Recurring formats and sections with a strong service aspect — a guide, an agenda or news from the foundations — round off the content. The “number” format, which is commented on, further enhances the content.
in short: look forward to profound reading and conversation!
