Activities by Non-governmental Organisations and Political Foundations

In addition to bilateral governmental cooperation, there is a large number of programmes run by non-governmental players such as churches, political foundations, NGOs or private initiatives. The German Government regards the contributions of these organisations as an important complement to governmental development cooperation and supports them financially.
