The Evangelical Mission in Solidarity (EMS) celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022. In accordance with the anniversary motto "Free for the Future", the EMS used its jubilee year to ensure the future for many children around the world in a sustainable way. For this purpose, we have set up the EMS Future Fund.

The EMS and its member churches support children in India and Indonesia by providing them with a good school education. They open up a worthwhile future for children with disabilities in Jordan and South Africa. In Lebanon and Indonesia, young people receive vocational training so that they can earn their own living.

For example, €5 gives one child a warm school meal for a month.
€50 provides an orphan with a roof over his or her head for a month.
€500 allows a young person from a disadvantaged background to continue his or her education.
And €5000 finances a teacher's salary for six months.

Thanks to all who help!

This is your valuable contribution to the future.

Give the gift of real prospects. For children and young people who otherwise have no future.

In South India we fund children's homes for orphans and children in need.

In Jordan we help visually impaired and blind children to learn together with sighted classmates.

In Indonesia we support young people on their educational path and enable them to have a better future.

The Evangelical Mission in Solidarity (EMS) turns 50 this year. Since 1972, the EMS has represented the interests of around 25 million Christians in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe - including millions of children and young people. The EMS is particularly committed to the rights of those who are vulnerable, poor and marginalised.

1972 | 2022 | 2072

The jubilee year should not only give us an opportunity to look back on the 50-year history of the EMS, but also to look ahead. We want to reflect about further ways to develop solidarity. Let us think about tomorrow now - about the next 50 years - and together enable future generations to have a future worth living. Every generation deserves the same opportunities to live a good life.

Think about the future of solidarity.

The EMS Future Fund provides specific support for children and young people - sustainably and efficiently. Whether it’s for fair educational opportunities, safe places to go and a roof over their heads, help for families in need or empowerment through participation - your donation opens up real prospects for children and young people and create opportunities!
