Helping where help is needed
ROKPA helps where humanitarian aid is exceptionally difficult, but desperately needed. The work of ROKPA is primarily concentrated upon education, medicine and food/living costs.
ROKPA attaches great importance to the self-help approach. Education has proven to be the most efficient way of assisting people in need to escape the poverty trap and to protect themselves against being exploited and abused. This is why ROKPA, through our education schemes, prepares disadvantaged children and adults for a self-determined life.
