Current Donors:

Planact wishes to acknowledge funding support from the following Donors over the years of its existence.

Katholische Zentralstelle fur Entwicklungshilfe e.V./

Since 1992 Misereor has been providing support across the full range of Planact’s program activities.  Misereor’s approach is to fight the causes of injustice, because it is not enough to just alleviate its impacts. For this reason, Misereor aims to influence public opinion and policymaking. Political education, the exchange of experiences and networking are key elements of this work. For Planact this has been the longest and most inspiring collaboration in the struggle against poverty.
