We want

a world without hunger or poverty, without war or violence, in which all people can live a self-determined and dignified life. In solidarity with the ostracised, the marginalised and the vulnerable, we are working towards just and humane living conditions. We encourage respectful conduct towards one another – regardless of culture and religion.

We share

our resources with people in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. We learn from one another and with each other; we make decisions together. We are committed to peaceful dialogue, the fight against poverty, and healthcare provision. We support school and education programmes and encourage the spreading of the Gospel. This way, we live in a vibrant and solidary partnership.

We are

the Evangelical Mission in Solidarity, the EMS: 25 churches and five missionary societies in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East form a network of established, long-term partnerships. As a Christian society, we share resources, learn from and with each other, and make decisions together – enhancing the lives of everyone.

By donating, you are helping us to support people in desperate need of help. Through our projects, people are given prospects in life, for example through a sound education or good healthcare. In the long-term, this produces structures that improve the lives of everyone in the supported region. Play a part. Give people the gift of hope.

The goal of the EMS is to help people in the long term. The EMS Foundation provides the financial basis required to make this possible. Every year, the revenues from the foundations’ assets help people in need. You too can help. Your support allows us to achieve something lasting. With a lifetime foundation or a bequest, you are effectively supporting the work of the EMS, as you are giving people long-term opportunities that they would not otherwise have.


The projects and initiatives of the EMS are effective, varied and exemplary when it comes to cooperative partnerships. But how much more could the EMS achieve if more people were aware of the good work it does? Mission work, aid and charity move and connect people. Being a part of this global network allows you to support people sustainably. That feels good, doesn’t it? Then spread the word or volunteer with the EMS.
