We live and foster Christianity all over the world and, together with our partners in many countries of the world, we are striving for more justice, peace and the preservation of the Creation in this One World. We support intercultural exchange around the globe and encounters of people above and beyond cultural and religious borders.
Our partnerships with churches in Africa, Latin America, East Asia and the Pacific Region are characterized by encounters, staff exchange and financial support for church, social, medical and educational projects. In addition to the roughly 100 specialists who have currently been assigned to positions abroad on a temporary basis (pastors, deacons, teachers, physicians, engineers, business administration specialists or craftsmen), we also send out volunteers to our partner churches in the scope of a gap year to do voluntary work in the social sector in the scope of a FSJ year, as we call it in German, and grant scholarships abroad to students of theology.
In return, our work is complemented by the expert knowledge input of staff members who come from our partner churches abroad to see us and work with us in Germany. Together with our partners, we commit ourselves to standing up for common matters and enhancing the skills of all parties involved.
