About us

Who we are


HORIZONT3000 is an Austrian NGO working in the area of development cooperation. With the mandate of our member organisations of the catholic development sector, we specialize in the monitoring and implementation of projects as well as provision of Technical Advisors in developing countries.

People in focus

Every person is entitled to just and dignified living conditions and to self-determination, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender or religion. Based on christian values, we offer support to people in our partner countries in their aspiration to improve the quality of their lives.

Respect and Partnership

Through our regional offices and personnel deployed in the individual projects, we are in constant dialogue and exchange with civil society organisations and decision makers in our partner countries. Our shared approach is characterised by respect, by a fair and cooperative working environment, by participation and by constant willingness to learn from each other. In this way we are able to succeed in optimally fulfilling the needs and requirements of our target groups.


In both the formulation and implementation stages of our programmes and projects, we orient ourselves on principles of sustainability, in its social, ecologic and economic aspects. Together with civil society representatives and with our partner organisations we assume joint responsibility for a ‘one-world’ approach, which also includes awareness about the limited availability of natural and material resources.

How we work
