Slovene Philanthropy, Association for Promotion of Volunteering, is a humanitarian organization working in the public interest since 1992. Our programmes are aimed towards raising the quality of living in the community and advocating for the vulnerable groups in society. Our central activity is the promotion of volunteering, because we believe that with volunteering, we can all contribute to a better and more tolerant society, which is based on respect towards everyone, no matter their personal or objective circumstances. We offer trainings for volunteers, mentors and organisers of volunteers, and educational content for various stakeholders. We advocate the following values: Solidarity, Respect towards People and Nature, Tolerance, Equality and Equal Opportunities for All. Our activities are united within different Programme Units.
Slovene Philanthropy has been actively responding to social problems for the past 28 years, encouraging and developing volunteer work and intergenerational cooperation, acting in the area of migration, helping the vulnerable and is a vocal advocate for human rights.
Our vision is an open, just and solidary society that, through the partnership and cooperation of public institutions, the economic sector and voluntary activities of citizens, offers a stimulating environment to all – even those who are, because of any circumstance, unable to provide quality of life for themselves and their families.
