Schweitzer's ethic of Reverence for Life was conceived whilst sitting on a boat traveling up the river Oguowe in the Gabon, pondering a way forward for humankind. Living this ethic is our reason for being and embodies everything that we strive to achieve through our charitable actions.
Our Charity's 'objects' are
- To provide support for projects in the UK and worldwide which are consistent with the philosophy of Reverence for Life and which attempt to express this in practice.
- To keep the story of Albert Schweitzer alive and help to spread his thought and his written legacy as widely as possible.
- To affirm the universal validity of Albert Schweitzer's philosophy of Reverence for Life and the ethic which is its foundation and to promote and practice new ways of applying this today and in the future
