What is Crossing Borders?

Crossing Borders has operated as a stand-alone association since 2011 and is a licensed charity in Austria.

Crossing Borders‘ history is deeply intertwined with the remarkable journey of OMICRON, a company driven by a vision to create a positive global impact. Born out of the collective aspiration of its members to make the world a better place, our organization has consistently striven to translate success into meaningful change. As OMICRON flourished in the early 1990s, our dedicated members sought avenues to share this success and extend a helping hand towards transforming lives for the better. Our focus on empowering children in underdeveloped regions through educational opportunities stems from the profound belief that it allows us to maximize the impact of our available resources. It is with this profound sense of purpose that our first projects were funded in 1995, and to this day, each initiative continues to be nurtured under the guidance of a dedicated Crossing Borders member.

The people behind Crossing Borders

At Crossing Borders, we provide the necessary resources while our remarkable people invest their time and energy on a volunteer basis dedicating themselves to a good cause in various ways.   

An elected Crossing Borders Core Team makes decisions on support, and we foster a culture where every member of our organization is welcomed and encouraged to participate. 

In addition, we are fortunate to have the support of more than 40 additional volunteers who actively contribute to Crossing Borders initiatives as project mentors or in various other capacities. Their dedication and enthusiasm add an extra dimension to our collective efforts.
