Muriel Harloff

Position: Secretary
My stay in Nepal gave me an insight into the culture and lives of the people there. From the start, the country fascinated and shocked me at the same time - with the beauty of the Himalayas, and the hard living conditions it entails. I believe the work of PHASE enables me to help give local people access to functioning healthcare and education , and thus to strengthen their empowerment in the long term.

DI Thomas Weber

Position: Treasurer
The Himalayas, and Nepal in particular, have captivated my imagination since I was a boy. When I came across PHASE Austria, I immediately knew that I wanted to support this unique approach of self-empowerment, which enables local people to become the nucleus of a sustainable improvement of living conditions in their region.

Olivia Schneider

Position: Volunteer
From the start, I was inspired by the sustainable and empowering approach of PHASE. With increasing insight, I became even more aware of the cooperative and transparent approach of the organisation that is evident in all its work. At the heart of every project is the long-term improvement of people’s lives and their interest, and this without making them dependent on external help. This approach to development cooperation is evidence of high value, and I feel very lucky to be able to support this project.

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.
