    • projects in agricultural formation and training.
    • agricultural practices to conserve biodiversity.
    • agricultural projects to support disadvantaged women. 
  • Projects in selected developing areas that serve the protection of and access to water, soil and healthy air. This includes the sponsoring of: 
    • measures in the fields of water resources management, drinking water supply,  basic sanitation as well as agricultural irrigation.
    • reforestation to prevent erosion.
    • measures to improve the quality of farmland.
    • access to agriculturally productive soils for small farmers.
    • efficient animal-breeding to diminish climate-relevant pollution.
    • climate change adaption projects.
  • Projects in selected developing areas that provide the necessary infrastructure, access to markets or know how for the successful and sustainable realization of the projects mentioned above. This includes the sponsoring of:
    • processing and commercialization of agricultural projects.
    • occupational training. 
    • structures of farming and business cooperatives. 
  • Programs of international exchange, studying and raising of consciousness to sensitize for the world-wide living conditions in the countryside. This includes the sponsoring of:

    • raising consciousness and PR at local level.  

Right now, these priority countries are Uganda, Tanzania and India. Our concern is to build expertise in these three countries, support and facilitate the participation of our company’s employees who want to commit to our foundation and to establish contact between young people from our region and people in priority countries. We are still highly interested in the active exchange of knowledge and experiences – in our priority countries and all over the world.
