Development Cooperation

India

Together with our local partner organisations we are working on empowering people in order to take responsibility for their lives and to participate in the decision making processes about their social, political and economical future actively.

We want to enable the families to satisfy their basic needs, to preserve common forms of living within the family and community and to protect their natural environment. In our projects we are supporting the following activities, aiming at a comprehensive, holistic and sustainable development process in rural areas:

  • Awareness generation and organisation of the target Groups
  • Non-formal education
  • Preventive and curative activities in the field of health Promotion
  • Agriculture and preservation of natural resources
  • Income-Generation
  • Construction of low-cost houses/latrines
  • Preventive character

The programmes in general do have preventive character. Regarding the regional concentration of our co-operations we do have a clear focus for the most deserving areas in the middle and north of India.

We are supported by Karl Kübel Foundation for Child and Family (KKF), a charitable company with their headquarters in the KKID (Karl Kübel Institute for Development Education) campus in Coimbatore.

The FOUR regional co-ordination offices, located in Cochin, New Delhi and Calcutta, are managed exclusively by experienced Indian staff, and in Coimbatore is the main coordination office, working closely with the regional offices. In consultation with us, they assist our project partners in an advisory capacity, on a regular basis on project planning, reporting and accounting matters. Furthermore, the co-ordination offices are responsible for establishing the initial contacts with new project applicants and for selecting and recommending new partner organisations.
