Mission Statement MIVA
MIVA believes in the power of an individual. One person can make a difference in the lives of many others. MIVA feels like it is her mission to support local pioneers in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
All over the world, there are people who
feel they are destined to help others.
These people dare to take the lead and are committed to help the disadvantaged. They are active in many areas, such as women’s rights, health, education, human rights and rights of children. They often work on small projects in very remote areas that are difficult to reach.
MIVA supports these people with indispensable
means of transport and communication.
MIVA increases their reach, so they are able to help more people. Right there, where aid is most needed. Where this aid can save lives.
Since 2015 MIVA collaborates with the Liliane Foundation. Together we work with Southern partners on the basis of equal relationships. Our Strategic Partner Organizations (SPOs) in 24 countries have different tasks, powers and responsibilities. They have autonomy to make decisions for policy and programme development, and responsibility to coordinate and build the capacity of the network of local partner organizations.
Applications cannot be submitted to MIVA directly, but are submitted through the strategic partners of MIVA and the Liliane Foundation.
