Who are we?

Irie is an organization with a human vocation. Independently and with respect for different cultures IRIE seeks an open and positive attitude towards happiness and peace in the world.

We work towards a democratic world, where “humanity” comes first and a social context where everyone’s beliefs and values are to be respected. We don’t do this just by accepting challenges, but also by inspiring others. The ripple effect of this further waves out and becomes a continuous inspiration for people and businesses around the world.

Irie is a neutral, impartial and independent organization. Irie provides assistance to people in difficulty, without distinction of race, culture, gender, religion, ideology or political opinion. Irie is completely independent of all political, economic or religious organisations. We ensure our fundraising is done in an ethical manner. The acquired funds are used under close supervision for the realisation of our projects.

 

Objectives

  • Promote integrity and autonomy between the stakeholders.
  • Respect for human dignity.
  • Promote justice, equality and tolerance in all its forms everywhere on this world.
  • Strive for a fair, peaceful world full of diversity.
  • Mean something to others
 

I R I E: “Intercultural Resources for International Evolution” Irie also means: “all that is good”, “Peaceful vibrations”

What do we do?

We work with local communities, to build relationships and improve the quality of life in the North and South. Projects are seen out in their entirety:

  • Education requires well developed health care
  • Reliable food supply needs a solid agriculture
  • Emigration can be reduced by sustainable development
  • Economic growth
  • Perspective and confidence in their own country

All these items are related and are addressed as much as possible in the right order, project by project.

Why

The idea to start arose from the question of how Irie can contribute to a better world, more humane, more peaceful, more loving, freer, happier ….

Irie inpo is an international, independent, autonomous humanitarian organization that stands for respect for life in all its forms and diversity, solidarity and peace. She tries to help to achieve a more humane world and shall be guided by the principles of neutrality and impartiality.

Irie stands for a democratic world, where “humanity”  is the priority, and where each other’s standards and values are respected.

Happiness is about having ENOUGH and not always striving for MORE. When we share, there is enough on this earth to offer a valuable life to all so that people don’t have to flee their country to seek happiness elsewhere. We can live in a paradisiacal world if we ourselves take the first step!

Since 2014  Irie is member of ‘ Conseil Consultatif de la solidarité internationale de l’administration de Saint-Josse’.

Philosophy/Vision

Irie is an organization with a human vocation that wants to help people in trouble without distinction of race, culture, gender, religion, creed or political belief. She wants to achieve this by initially focusing on the basic needs of every human being. Therefor Irie has the basic needs as following:

Food and potable water: If there is no food or potable water available, the search for it is a full time job and further development would be impossible.

Accommodation: A house provides protection from the weather, insects, predators, …

Healthcare: Without a primary healthcare banal diseases can be life threatening.

Education and training: Good education and training provides greater security for a better future.

Sustainable Infrastructure: A sustainable infrastructure and a healthy environment are necessary for success in the long run.

 

These basic needs are equally important and codependant. The circle below shows that if one is not realised, further evolution or development is not possible. Ex: a sick child or a child with an empty stomach can not be attentive at school.

Striving to a better world.

Strategy

A pilot project is started up to translate Irie’s vision in practice. From this it wants to fetch Irie a format that can also be applied in other rural areas. Knowledge and cooperation of the local population is essential for the success of each project. Irie always works with local counselors who provide support and coordination on the field.

Irie wants to check all her projects with multiple values (presented below). These are the anchors of Irie’s basic philosophy, that ensure the sustainability of each project. Through this holistic approach, taking into account each of these points, Irie ensures a broad,durable and all-encompassing development.
