About Menschen für Menschen

Together with the local people, Menschen für Menschen dovetails measures in the areas of agriculture, water, education, health and human development in so-called integrated rural development projects. The foundation stone for Menschen für Menschen was laid on 16 May 1981 by former actor Karlheinz Böhm († 2014) with his legendary wager in the German TV show “Wetten, dass…?” The Foundation carries the donation seal of the German Central Institute for Social Affairs (DZI). With over 700 full-time employees, almost all of whom are Ethiopian nationals, Menschen für Menschen is currently carrying out project work in twelve areas.
