Bread for the World – Protestant Development Service is the globally active development and relief agency of the Protestant Churches in Germany. In more than 90 countries all across the globe we empower the poor and marginalised to improve their living conditions. Key issues of our work are food security, the promotion of health and education, the access to water, the strengthening of democracy, respecting human rights, keeping peace and the integrity of creation.

Our guiding principles

Our work is rooted in the faith that bears witness to the world as God’s creation, in the love that encounters the Lord precisely in our disenfranchised and poorest neighbour, and in the hope that acts in accordance with God’s will in expectation of a just world. Bread for the World – Protestant Development Service considers itself part of the global Christian Community. We seek the cooperation with churches and church agencies throughout the world and assume our responsibility in ecumenical networks.

Our Work

The work of Bread for the World – Protestant Development Service primarily focuses on the support of projects in the countries of the Global South. An essential feature of our projects is the close and continuous cooperation with local, often church-related partner organisations. Upon request, Bread for the World provides them with specialists and volunteers. Through lobbying, public relations and education in Germany and Europe we seek to influence political decisions in favor of the poor and to raise awareness for the necessity of a sustainable way of life.

“It is paradoxical but hardly surprising that the right to food has been endorsed more often and with greater unanimity and urgency than most other human rights, while at the same time being violated more comprehensively and systematically than probably any other.”

Richard Cohen, in Causes of Hunger, 1994
