Probability Practise, helping the Poor
Can we help the poor simply by increasing the probability that a skillful independent helper or her organisation finds them?

William Easterly, the development economist and author of "The White Man's Burden" makes a famous distinction between "Planners" and "Searchers". The Planners have led most of the development efforts over the past 40 years ...

July 1. Still in Malaysia.
Summer is well underway and we crash into a Malaysian July, about to leave the northern hemisphere and turn things around. My memory of this day is faded, but I think we have visited an huge cave complex, photographed the golden statue with restless pigeons swarming around it. And the stray monkeys clambering on the ...

In the near future, we will plan a professional tour to empower the poorest communities on this planet with portable techniques and knowledge, but that's another story.

Here we ...
Text six minutes Presentation
Hello everybody, I am happy to be here today. What I want to share with you a concept that I call Charity Travel. It's actually very simple: the idea is to combine exciting traveling with simply doing something good.
Together with my girlfriend Yeon I set out on a yearlong journey (October 09 til October ...
Traveller können mehr als nur konsumieren.
Kann man die Welt mit Reisen verbessern? Klar, es gibt Exzentriker die einbeinig um die Welt hüpfen und wir dürfen dann pro Kilometer spenden. Oder reiche Philantropen die eine Armenküche auf dem Deck ihrer Yacht organisieren. Aber als Normalverbraucher? Neben Selbstverständlichkeiten wie ökologisch und sozial verantwortlich reisen können wir doch nicht viel tun, oder wir ...
Travellers can be more than consumers alone.
Can you change the world by traveling? Sure, there are eccentrics who hop around the world on one leg and allow us to sponsor them, or rich philantrophes who organize a soup kitchen on the deck of their yacht. But the normal tax payer? Apart from self-evident things like ecologically and socially responsible travel we ...

November 28. Reaching anybody?
After some five weeks, I become more and more convinced that the idea of Charity Travel works. Many travelers I meet on my way are enthousiastic about it, which shows me it has potential. What we have to do is

a) Reach a larger audience. I am trying everything within legal boundaries to do ...
November 6. A memorable day.

This is a memorable day. I wake up on the couch of Mona's apartment, and we have a short breakfast together. She explains me how to get to the Al-Manar television - the Hezbollah news station. I walk out that sunny morning and ask for the way a couple of times. A billboard is ...
October 16.
The feeling of being on the road again! Today Charity Travel starts officially. It feels very good.


Then I listen to an audiobook by Bill Bryson on the quirks of the English language, that will probably always remain a strange tool in my hands. I have to find the right pace and power ...
October 14. Thank you.
I use the German payed car-sharing website to leave nothing to chance. Of course, I could have hitched down to Hessen, but I have too much on my mind. Will Charity Travel be successful? When will I know? After my first orphanage or project in Turkey, or after I crossed the Levante into Egypt? Or ...
October 5. Last week of preparations.
The ultimate goal could not possibly be something else than our own happiness, because it is through our sensory systems, our nervous systems, our backbones, and our brains that we experience it. If we are denying this and proclaim out loud how we could, oh, live off the mere view of a smiling child at ...
September 28. Preparation underway.
It seems the final weeks of preparation have commenced. Charity Travel will begin mid October, I'll most likely fly into Georgia and start talking to people there about the conflicts they live through. Perhaps I'll find an orphanage or another genuine good work to support. But might keep my  wallet closed until Africa. I am ...
