Relief Project – Step 0.1
Small steps lead to goals too. Step 0.1 supports needy people in crisis situations like social exclusion, sickness, poverty, violence, natural disasters or war. We help people irrespective of their religious, ethnical, social or political background.
While our search for permanent solutions we work together with various partners to contain conflicts.
With our work we try to point out problems of our world.
Heads of the Project are Peter Weichselbaumer (foto) and Stephan Keck.
At the moment we support two projects:
- DIAMIR ROI – Place of Angels / Pakistan
Planning and implementation
- SANCHO – Help for the Khumbu Valley
We support the project financially

From our experiences we know that it usuallytakes 1 -2 years to plan and organise an expedition carefully.Therefore, it is useful to have a time schedule for several years. Below, this is the plan of 2010.
Ski expedition to Dhaulagiri (धौलागिरी) in Nepal. It is with its 8167m the seventh highest mounatin in the world. Dhalagiri means "white mountain", so it is perfect for a ski expedition. It forms the eastern anchor of the Dhaulagiri Himal, a subrange of the Himalayas in the Dhawalagiri Zone of north central Nepal.
Aug / Sept:
Ski expedition to Cho Oyu 8153m. The sixth highest mountain of the world lies 20km in the west of Mt. Everest and is at the border of China and Nepal. Because the mountain is said to be the "easiest" 8000m peak it is avery popular objective for professionally guided parties.
Climbing expedition to Puncak Jaya. Also known as Carstensz Pyramid is with its 4884 the highest mountain in Indonesia and also the highest island peak in the world. The mountain of the western central highlands of Papua province is also the highest poin between the Himalayas and the Andes.
