People in Need is a Czech non-profit, non-governmental organization that provides relief aid and development assistance, while working to defend human rights and democratic freedom.  At home, People in Need administers social integration programs in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and provides informative and educational activities. PIN is one of the largest organizations of its kind in post-communist Europe, and has administered projects in more then 40 countries over the past twenty years.

What is PIN today began in 1992 when dissidents and leaders of the Czechoslovak Velvet Revolution teamed with conflict journalists to form the Epicentrum Foundation, renamed People in Need and partnered with Czech Public Service Television 1994. From its beginnings, PIN has aimed to provide relief aid, development assistance and human rights support in some of the most challenging environments in the world, while raising the public’s level of awareness of the countries in which PIN works. Over twenty years, PIN has developed many public awareness campaigns aimed at providing independent and unbiased information for journalists, opinion makers and the general public. Through campaigns, information projects and media supplements PIN believes it is possible to support an informed and empowered civil society both at home and abroad.
