Founded in 1970 by the priest Omer Tanghe, with the aim of providing assistance to countries to realize development programs in collaboration with local organizations.


We want to help closing the gap between North and South. Help and solidarity are the key words. We are looking for sustainable solutions for the problems of poverty and inequality, the right to health and descend work.


Kontinenten supports specific projects of partners and institutions in developing countries that meet our objective. We are active in more than 30 countries.

This mainly concerns small-scale and sustainable projects aimed at improving the living conditions of the most vurnable population. This in collaboration with local organizations and groups. These small-scale projects respond to the real needs of a community and help achieve sustainable development goals.

In order to achieve these objectives, we also collaborate with various other organizations.
