The Development Cooperation Foundation

The Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation uses various projects to show how everyone can do something for a fairer world. With educational offerings and exchange formats, it strengthens people in Baden-Württemberg's awareness of how local actions impact global relationships. Through project funding and networking, the SEZ supports private, municipal and regional initiatives to improve and deepen partnerships with countries in the so-called Global South. This plays a special role AMAHORO! State partnership between Baden-Württemberg and Burundi, which has linked both regions for more than 40 years.

Our self-image

The SEZ offers platforms for exchange and discussion. This way, people with different backgrounds, perspectives and opinions can work together to find solutions that will make our world more sustainable and fair. In our opinion, the foundation for this is relationships between people and long-term partnerships in which both sides learn from each other. A prerequisite for this is interculturally sensitive cooperation, respectful interaction, honest exchange and transparency. The Understanding of partnership The SEZ does not exclude anyone, but sees diversity as a pioneer for greater global justice.
