Information on the call for proposals

Our offer of support in the area of ‘migration and refugee movements’ is intended for diaspora organisations in Germany that wish to contribute to the development of their respective country of origin and to improving the overall conditions for legal migration. We support project ideas that aim to create prospects for those threatened by displacement and returning migrants, and that help to combat the root causes of refugee movements.

We promote projects that diaspora organisations in Germany develop and implement in cooperation with a local partner organisation in the country of origin. We invite the diaspora to contribute and pass their specialist knowledge and experience on to the partner organisation and target groups in the country of origin in order to achieve local impact.

As part of this service, we promote public-benefit and development projects in the following countries of the Global South: Afghanistan, Albania, Cameroon, Colombia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, the Gambia, Georgia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Palestinian Territories, Peru, Senegal, Serbia, Tunisia, Ukraine and Viet Nam.

Project ideas involving integration measures in Germany are not eligible for support.
