Back to Life e.V. improved and improves the lives of needy and most disadvantaged people in India from 1996-2017 and since 2009 in Nepal. Up to 45,000 people in Nepal are currently being reached by the activities of Back to Life. For about 8,700 children, the educational situation was noticeably improved. The projects are being initiated and led by the founder Stella Deetjen under the guiding idea of ‘helping others help themselves’– with the goal to enable and encourage the people on their way to a self-determined life. The local project managers and employees implement these until they are successfully completed. Administrative tasks are carried out in Germany by a small team to keep the costs low. In addition, many helpers, club members and the Board of Management do voluntary work.

Back to Life e.V. is registered as a non-profit association at the District Court of Back Homburg and exempt from corporate tax by the tax office. The charity projects have no financial intentions and have no religious or political connections or ties. As a non-profit organization, we are of course entitled to issue donation receipts. We will automatically send these to you right at the start of the next calendar year, provided your annual donations amount to more than €200 and you have noted your complete address in the reference line. For donations up to €200 per year, you just need to provide the tax office with the bank statement in Germany. Please be aware that the tax regulations in your country might differ from the German ones.
