50 years – 50 voices

“KOLPING stands for Christian charity and solidarity. For 50 years now the association has been implementing this guiding principle also in developing countries.  Thanks to the projects of KOLPING INTERNATIONAL people in more than 60 countries can increase their income and quality of life.  In many projects, women receive particular support.  In my function as President of the Catholic German Women’s Association, this is especially important to me.  We know:  Women play a key role in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  That is why I am happy about our joint commitment for more education, access to health services and participation for women worldwide.”

Dr. Maria Flachsbarth MdB, Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development
