Promoting Social Justice, Democracy and International Dialogue

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) has been engaged in Sudan since 1975. It pursues the promotion of peace, democracy and human rights, just socio-economic development and a more sustainable use of the environment in the Sudan.                                                      FES Sudan strives to enable disadvantaged societal groups to articulate their interests and by strengthening their capacities to participate in public life. Fostering gender equality is of particular significance in this process. We support activities of Sudanese partners of all regional, cultural and social origins, and cooperate with governmental institutions, universities, trade unions, and civil society organizations.

Founded in 1925 as Germany’s first political foundation, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is a private non-profit organisation committed to the ideas and basic values of social democracy. It bears the name of the first democratically elected president, Friedrich Ebert, preserving his legacy: the promotion of freedom, solidarity and social justice through the political process. FES undertakes to carry out this mission in Germany and abroad, through its programs promoting political education, international cooperation, study and research.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, with offices in more than 100 countries, regards it as its task to help :

   - Safeguard democratic structures by involving as many social groups as possible.
   - Promote economic reform and a policy of social justice.
   - Formulate common basic values to guide socio-political development.
Our challenge as we see it is to adapt the focus and instruments of our work continuously in response to social developments.
