Our Vision

We envision a world where people have access to a decent standard of living and the opportunities to develop their full human potential and participate actively in building a society where men and women, young and old, live in dignity and without poverty. We envision a world where common people, public and private sectors, work hard-in-hand for mutual benefit by harnessing our natural resources, skills, and opportunities in a sustainable manner that could contribute to improving the quality of life for the present and future generation. We build partnerships for development with like-minded individuals and organizations at the local, national, and international levels.

Wimler believes that:

  • Poor people have the right to improved quality of life and active participation in the society.
  • Our work should focus on building and strengthening community-based organizations.
  • The legitimate aspirations of the local organizations should be valued, promoted, encouraged, and respected.
  • The community-based organizations should be actively involved in deciding the types of programs and services that are good for them.
  • Sustainable development is achievable if development is actively supported by local communities based on local ownerships, mutual respect, and trust.
  • Entrepreneurial projects and job-creating activities with broad ground-level support could make a difference in the lives of the poor.

To achieve its mission, WIMLER works to:

  • Support community-based self-help initiatives (e.g., microfinance and other livelihood projects) and to promote sustainable development.
  • Provide capacity-building, development and skills training that enhance social and economic empowerment of the local communities.
  • Help the local people to help themselves through practical application of local knowledge and resources to improve their quality of life.
  • Provide educational assistance to deserving children and out-of-school youth. Link locally-based organizations with external donors and to leverage funding to support various community projects but also work towards their self-sustainability.
  • Provide technical assistance and consultancy services.
  • Promote the philosophy and principles of corporate social responsibility for the benefit of grassroots communities.
