Brot für die Welt

Brot für die Welt is the globally active development and relief agency of the Protestant Churches in Germany. In more than 85 countries it empowers the poor and marginalised.

Key issues of the organisation's work are food security, the promotion of health and education, the access to water, the strengthening of democracy, respecting human rights, keeping peace and the integrity of creation. Brot für die Welt takes steps to make sure that there is enough food for everyone. Because fighting hunger becomes increasingly important in times of climate change and ever scarcer resources.

Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)

No Poverty
Zero Hunger
Good Health and Well-being
Gender Equality
Reduced Inequalities

How we work

The work of Brot für die Welt primarily focuses on the support of projects in the countries of the Global South. An essential feature of the projects is the close and continuous cooperation with local, often church-related partner organisations. Upon request, Brot für die Welt provides them with specialists and volunteers. Through lobbying, public relations and education in Germany and Europe we seek to influence political decisions in favour of the poor.

... and why

The world stands on the brink of immense upheaval. How can we make it possible for everyone to enjoy a good life, while at the same time preserving the Earth for future generations and protecting God’s creation? This is the key question of our time. The answers we find today as a global community will set the course for the lives of many future generations. Brot für die Welt aims at showing how we see the road to an alternative future.
