Pipelife around the World - 27 months - 27 countries - 27 projects

Starting in 2012 Pipelife is partnering with the Austrian Red Cross in order to support humanitarian projects in all countries in which Pipelife is active. Each month a certain amount of money will be donated to a project in a different country. In total 27 countries will be covered so that the entire project will run for 27 months.

January - September 2012

Prepare to Respond

The first nine months, Pipelife will support a unique training program, organized by the Austrian Red Cross and the RedR UK. It is designated to support aid workers and humanitarian organisations in the new EU states and Croatia. The program is financially also supported by the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid Department (ECHO).

Assisting people in emergencies relies on the high capacity levels of the humanitarian workers responding. Therefore, any relief organisation needs to make sure that its staff receives the right  training in order to be able to respond to disasters and crises effectively and efficiently.

In the past 20 years a number of humanitarian organisations with national and overseas activities have emerged in new EU states. However, opportunities to acquire the needed skills and knowledge have been limited in these countries.
Austrian Red Cross and RedR UK have created a partnership that combines expert skills and knowledge to deliver a unique training program in the region. Jointly they offer a broad range of affordable trainings to build up and strengthen humanitarian capacities in the new EU countries. The program caters for all knowledge levels with training appropriate for individuals beginning a career within the sector to experienced relief workers looking to develop specialist skills. Diverse programs and methodologies, skilled facilitators and international groups of 20 participants, each with different skills and experiences, will provide the ideal training environment.

October 2012 - March 2014

In the month after "Prepare to Respond", the Pipelife Group will continue to support various social projects throughout the world. The close and fruitful cooperation with the Red Cross will proceed and guarantees careful utilization and distribution of the funds provided by Pipelife, as well as professional organization and execution of the sponsored projects.
