Mission statement

The aim of development cooperation is to give people the freedom to shape their own lives, by making their own decisions and taking responsibility for them, without suffering material hardship. With this aim in mind, the German government is seeking with its development policy to help make globalisation an opportunity for all. The sectors that German development cooperation will focus on in particular in the future will be education, health, rural development, good governance and sustainable economic development. The guiding principle in all efforts is the protection of human rights. See link: http://www.bmz.de/en/what_we_do/principles/index.html)
