About Human Act

The Human Act Foundation is a Danish NGO with headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, and with departments in Iran, Palestine, Nepal and Uganda. Entrepreneur and philanthropist Djaffar Shalchi and his wife Ané Maro founded the foundation in 2016 with a wish to make a difference in the lives of the millions of people living in extreme poverty. The foundation owns a property company called Human Act Properties. Human Act Properties manages six apartment buildings located in the Copenhagen Area, and ninety-eight percent of the surplus of Human Act Properties assets goes to the charitable work of the foundation.
