  • F Funder


GIZ develops tailor-made solutions to challenging problems for our clients. As a competent service provider, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving it's goals for better schooling. Better schooling is characterised by improvements in classroom practices, equal participation by girls, boys and children with special needs and by a respectful school climate that is free from fear. Another key factor is a stable environment that promotes learning. Prerequisites here include good health and an intact infrastructure. 4,4 million girls and 4,3 million boys have benefited from the projects that we have implemented in this field together with our partners, commissioning parties and clients.
