Overview of the Global Situation

In the 'Mid Year Report 2021' by UNHCR, for the first time, over 80 million people worldwide were displaced. The pandemic significantly worsened the situation for refugees in 2020.

At the beginning of this year, approximately 79.5 million people were displaced due to persecution, conflicts, and human rights violations. Among them were 45.7 million internally displaced people, meaning people who are displaced within their own country.

There were 29.6 million refugees and displaced people outside their country of origin, as well as 4.2 million asylum seekers. 40% of displaced people worldwide are children under the age of 18.

"Initiative Transparente Zivilgesellschaft"

Transparency creates trust.

In Germany, there are unfortunately no uniform disclosure requirements for civil society organizations. However, we Musketeers believe that transparency is not only important but also helps make one's work understandable to the public and donors, thereby strengthening trust and credibility.

Therefore, the 3 Musketiere Reutlingen have decided to join the Initiative Transparente Zivilgesellschaft – ITZ and hereby publish the ten transparency information points developed by ITZ, which every civil society organization should make accessible to the public.

About us

We are Betül, Markus, & Claudi (from left to right), the founders of the 'Three Musketeers.' With heart and soul, we dedicate ourselves to the good cause, support vulnerable people and those in need to the best of our abilities, and strive to make the world a slightly better place.


We help people in need as quickly, without bureaucracy, and flexibly as possible. We are committed to the principle of humanity.

We are aware that with our work, we share in the fate of people. Our work fulfills and raises expectations. Our work in projects is temporary.

We closely coordinate our activities with those in need and local authorities, working strictly based on needs.

We aim to strengthen the initiative of people and organizations on-site and guide them toward self-help.

We help suffering people, regardless of their ethnic, religious, sexual, and political affiliations.

We contribute to improving local infrastructure by developing forward-looking training programs and strive to employ experienced regional staff.

For us, a relief project does not end after the operational phase. Even afterward, we actively work on sustainable quality assurance.

We are open to the ideas and innovations of people on-site. We see ourselves as learners, even in what we give.

We are aware that we initiate change and change ourselves in the process. No one leaves a project the same way they entered it.

We collaborate with NGOs we trust and share our principles.

In every emergency or relief effort, we consider how it can evolve into development cooperation.

Being politically independent does not mean being apolitical. Our commitment to the persecuted and oppressed inevitably brings us into conflict with persecutors and oppressors. Political attention is a fundamental requirement for our work because it helps us avoid dangerous situations.

We decide on the location, duration, and scope of our operations. Therefore, independence from both public funds and economic sponsorship is a central requirement for our work.

Prudent use of our resources and transparency toward the public and our donors are essential to us.

Good work and efficient management are the best public relations for us.
