Brot für die Welt (BfdW)
Brot für die Welt is a globally active developmental organization of the German Protestant Regional and Free Churches and their deaconry. In more than 90 countries, Brot für die Welt helps poor and marginalized people to independently improve their lives. One major focus of the work is securing the food supply. In times of climate change and increasingly scarce resources, the fight against hunger and lack of food is becoming increasingly important. Brot für die Welt supports the poor and rural population in achieving good yields with environmentally friendly methods. We are also committed to the promotion of education and health, access to water, strengthening democracy, respect for human rights, safeguarding peace and preserving natural resources. For bread stands as a symbol for more than food, bread stands for everything that man needs for life. An essential feature of the project is working closely with local, often church-run partner organizations. Together with them, Brot für die Welt looks for global solutions to the most urgent problems. Brot für die Welt helps people regardless of their ethnicity or religious affiliation. Those who benefit the most are the very poorest sections of the population. Brot für die Welt helps them to develop their potential so that they can free themselves from their state of poverty. In all projects, Brot für die Welt also ensures that women and men benefit equally from collaborative work.
