Aid to education

In Germany, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is in charge of planning and programming development cooperation. The major implementing organization for the BMZ is the German Association for International Cooperation (GIZ).

Promoting education is one of the priority areas of German development policy.

The guiding vision of BMZ’s education strategy is lifelong learning – from early learning through primary and secondary education, vocational and higher education to adult education.  

As of 2015, Germany’s focus areas for basic education in development cooperation are:

  • Early childhood learning
  • Primary education
  • Promoting mother-tongue education
  • Secondary school education
  • Non-formal education. 

Germany’s partner countries in which there is a focus on education are: Afghanistan, Angola, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Guinea, Honduras, Kosovo, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, Togo, and Yemen.
