Dienste in Übersee gGmbH (DUE) has been looking for development workers for partner organisations of Bread for the World (Brot für die Welt) for about 60 years. DÜ selects these ecumenically and developmentally committed professionals according to standardised procedures, trains them in intensive preparation for service lasting several weeks and accompanies them during their time abroad and after their return.
Bread for the World is the worldwide development agency of the Protestant churches in Germany. In more than 90 countries around the world, the work empowers poor and marginalised people to improve their living situation by their own efforts. Bread for the World works closely with local, often church-based partner organisations.
DUE is one of seven organisations in Germany recognised by the Development Aid Act (EhfG). With a contract under the EhfG, skilled workers abroad also receive social security coverage according to German standards. In addition, DUE provides relevant knowledge and practical skills for intercultural work with people in preparation and support.
