How do we work as a team?

Our guiding values are the basis for our collaboration. Our employees as well as applicants can rely on Light for the World as an employer. We expect involvement, professionalism and respectful conduct from all our employees.


Pioneering spirit, drive and passion: this is what defines us. In our organisation you will find self-confident employees who work independently and embrace new ideas. We keep an eye on the bigger picture. Inclusion is of great concern to us.

Professionals at work

Light for the World is an internationally recognised NGO with professional and highly motivated employees and a clear strategy. We set ourselves ambitious goals, take courageous decisions, reflect upon our achievements and draw appropriate consequences. The consequences of our doings are in our focus all the time. With us, you will develop new skills and master many interesting tasks.

You and I

At Light for the World, you are respected. We are an egalitarian, open-minded and inclusive organisation. We do not lose sight of our work-life balance over our passion for our mission.

Leitwerte. A Brighter Day.

What drives us?

Light for the World aims to brighten the day: for persons with disabilities, of our employees as well as for our donors.

Who works with us?

At Light for the World salaried, unsalaried and freelance colleagues contribute to a common goal. We also take on internships. Proper integration and sensitive cooperation of all parties involved are important for our success.
