We are the ArcArc Organization.
and we are an NGO
NGO means "Non-Governmental Organization" and means non-governmental organization.
We are a private organization that represents social interests, but is not subordinate to the state or the government.
The term NGO is not legally defined and there is no public body that officially registers organizations as NGOs.
It is therefore up to PERCEPTION whether an organization is perceived as an NGO or not, both the self-perception of the organization itself and the FOREIGN perception, i.e. the public, specialist public and media, as well as government and supraregional administrative bodies.
These bodies have usually developed their own definitions of who is an NGO, depending on the type of cooperation or confrontation to date.
Public due to legal form, self-administration and internationality:
WE do not act in secret, but publicly visible.
WE have a private legal form and manage ourselves according to our statutes.
Our focus is international, even if the activity can be regional. Whether in exchange with organizations abroad or by dealing with global problems, WE think outside the box of the region!
OUR focus on the common good of society:
WE do not pursue any harmful or discriminatory activities and our activities are aimed at the good of the world, for people, animals, the environment or politics.
WE are independent
WE are content-wise and financially independent of the influence of the state and the economy, and we choose our topics and activities ourselves, exclusively based on the declared GOAL of our organization.
This does not mean that no financial support HAS to be accepted!
WE also have paid staff (of course), but on the board of directors or through voluntary commitment by members, a significant part of our work is done through personal contribution. This goes beyond the aspect of the formal non-profit orientation and is an important characteristic.
This is perhaps our most important distinguishing feature: the interests of our members go beyond personal purposes and are for a greater cause than self-interest.
WOW, that's us!
That's how it is with us!
But it is not just enough to accept donations in money or in kind.
The appropriate people must also be there who will make the right use of them.
There have to be people who are involved in missions and other activities. If you would like to join us, we would be delighted.
