For example, it supports a credit fund in Mali in Africa which helps poor women set up small businesses; supports training in organic gardening and tree planting in Bangladesh; and helps an organisation of tribal people in the Philippines keep land-grabbers off their ancestral lands."

Academic Disaster Institutes:
Unser Ziel ist es, die Gesundheit von betroffenen Menschen in Not- und Krisenregionen zu erhalten und zu verbessern. Wir teilen dieses Ziel mit kirchlichen und nichtkirchlichen Partnern in Osteuropa und in den Ländern des Südens. Gemeinsam mit anderen Hilfswerken, besonders mit Caritas international, stehen wir diesen Partnern beratend und aktiv helfend zur Seite, wenn sie uns brauchen.
