On the other hand, we support specialists before, during and after their deployment and offer an extensive personnel development programme for further training. As a result, up to 280 AGEH specialists are deployed in 60 countries around the world every year.

Our project sponsors and clients include organisations such as Misereor and Caritas international, religious communities, dioceses and many other ecclesiastical and extra-church non-governmental organisations.

We are convinced that human suffering can be alleviated sustainably through joint, intercultural action. AGEH has set itself the goal of helping as many people as possible to lead a self-determined life that can be shaped with dignity.
