People in Need

People in Need (PIN) focuses on relief aid, development cooperation and support of human rights and democratic freedom. In the Czech Republic, People in Need implements social integration programs and provides informative and educational activities. Established in 1992 by Czech journalists and former dissidents, the PIN is today one of the largest organizations of its kind in post-communist Europe and has implemented projects in more than forty countries over the past three decades.

PIN’s Center for Human Rights and Democracy is engaged in delivering direct assistance to politically persecuted individuals, human rights defenders and their families, as well as in supporting pro-democracy groups, NGOs, civil sector, independent media, and journalists operating in challenging environments and countries with restrictive regimes.   Activities of the Center for Human Rights and Democracy build on sharing know-how and experience of the Czech and Central European democratic transition. The center also organizes the annual One World Documentary Film Festival – one of the largest human rights film festivals in Europe ( – and awards the annual Homo Homini Award.
