Promotion of Peace and the Common Good
The promotion of peace and the common good is the basic concern of the support and alumni work of KAAD. By supporting change agents, KAAD promotes and strengthens civil society structures, human rights, good governance and leadership, and finally democracies.
The diverse cultural heritage in the different regions of the world is an expression of the history and identity of the local people, and at the same time a treasure that is important for all humanity. By promoting multipliers, KAAD supports the preservation and transmission of physical and non-material cultural assets - in the conviction that development also includes cultural dimensions.
