The association

The association Move-ING e.V.

Move-ING e.V. is a non-profit organization that is actively committed to improving the quality of life for people worldwide. The association was founded in summer 2018 by Katharina Heide and Felix Dörr, two young civil engineers who have been volunteering in the context of international development cooperation since 2010. Accordingly, the work of the association is strongly shaped by their ideas and beliefs.

What is important to us



Knowledge transfer

The focus of the project work is a cooperation on an equal footing with the local partners as well as a continuous transfer of knowledge in order to guarantee sustainability and independence. The successful implementation of the project is particularly possible thanks to the close contact with the people on site. Move-ING not only supports the local project partners financially, but also uses engineering knowledge to plan sustainable and innovative project ideas and to implement them on site together with local craftsmen and workers. The association follows the principle of “helping people to help themselves” and takes action where the local people are no longer able to implement project ideas in a sustainable manner. This is to prevent personal initiative from being undermined or jobs being lost to the association.

Of course, all club members work voluntarily for Move-ING. All administrative costs, such as the server costs for this homepage or the printing and shipping costs of donation receipts or funding applications have so far been paid privately, so that 100% of the money donated goes to project work.


The association was founded on April 2nd, 2018 in Kreuztal, the association's seat is Auf der Hube 3, 57223 Kreuztal. Move-ING eV has been a recognized non-profit organization since August 9, 2018.

The association board is composed as follows:

  • Katharina Heide: Chairman of the Board

  • Felix Dörr: Deputy Chairman of the Board

  • Martina Klein: Treasurer

  • Maximilian Heide: Secretary
