Hardcore Help Foundation gUG (HHF) is a Lüdenscheid-based Non-Profit-Organisation founded in 2011 that works with community-based organizations to help disadvantaged and marginalized people. The objective of the non-profit company is to fight poverty and promote civic engagement through social, medical and economic measures. In numerous projects in Europe and especially Africa, people from marginalized population groups, regardless of faith, nationality, skin color or gender, are given access to basic health care, clean drinking water and education. Through these focal points, HHF aims to help reduce poverty and empower the target groups to exercise their rights and lead an independent life in dignity. In terms of sustainable action, it is particularly important for the HHF to draw on long-term reliable structures, resources and local knowledge and to develop ideas in a participatory manner with stakeholders. In addition, the HHF works with a variety of cooperation partners (e.g. government institutions, non-governmental organizations, community representatives, target groups, companies, nationally and internationally known artists from the music industry) who are involved in or support the work.
