PHASE inspires with its integrated approach to supporting disadvantaged communities, enabling them to emerge from the viscious circle of poverty, poor health and lack of education and to actively shape their own rights, empowering them to advocate for their own rights. By working for PHASE, I can contribute to achieving a noticeable and sustainable improvement for the people in our project communities.

Position: Co-opted board member
Every human being has a right to education, health and a decent life. Obviously, this is also true for people living in remote and disadvantaged regions of the world. By helping people help themselves, and by building sustainable practices and structures, PHASE Austria makes a difference in the lives of disadvantaged people in Nepal - a goal that exactly corresponds with my idea of empowerment!

Dipl.-Psych. Senta Vogl

Position: Deputy Chair
In my youth, there still were similarly remote farms in Austria and South Tyrol as there are in Nepal. We successfully developed these. I support PHASE so people in Nepal can find their way out of poverty and lack of education, while still being able to integrate their ancient knowledge into progress.

Position: Co-opted board member
The Himalayas, and Nepal in particular, have captivated my imagination since I was a boy.
