Who are our Donors?
German Federal Foreign Office
Bilateral cooperation between Germany and Afghanistan resumed at the beginning of 2002. Since then, Germany has made a crucial contribution towards civilian reconstruction in Afghanistan and is now the third largest donor (after the US and Japan). Representatives of the German Embassy in Afghanistan implement political decisions at local level and conduct dialogues with the Afghan government on all political issues, including reconstruction.
The German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO), in cooperation with the German state-owned KfW Development Bank, was the initiator of the PATRIP Foundation. The potential of the foundation to promote efficient and sustainable development of the region has been highly acknowledged by the GFFO.
GRAND-DUCHÉ DE LUXEMBOURG Ministère des Affaires étrangères:
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has been actively promoting development in Afghanistan since 2000. Following the Tokyo Conference in July 2012, Mr. Asselborn, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Luxembourg, underlined his country's commitment to continuing development cooperation beyond 2014. He stressed the active support that Luxembourg gives to projects aimed at improving cross-border cooperation - an approach that is highly appreciated by the PATRIP Foundation.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the PATRIP Foundation's first non-German donor to commit for a period of three years. The Grand Duchy of Luxemburg is represented with one seat on the Supervisory Board and is able to actively influence PATRIP Foundation strategies for the period concerned.
