Current projects 

Annually, the zivik funding programme supports about 70 NGOs. Individual projects differ in terms of country and region, the choice of target groups and applied methods.

Nonetheless, we hope that by tracking these examples, to be able to convey a vivid impression of the wide range of projects the zivik funding programme is supporting.

More current and exemplary projects will soon be presented here.
