The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Sudan
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, and just socio-economic development.
FES Sudan strives to enable societal groups to articulate their interests 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 cultural non-profit organisation committed to the ideas and basic values of social democracy.
It bears the name of Germany’s first democratically elected president, Friedrich Ebert, preserving his legacy: promoting democracy by civic education, international cooperation and provision of scholarships for disadvantaged students. FES, with over 120 offices worldwide, undertakes to carry out this mission in Germany and abroad, through its programmes promoting political education, international cooperation, study and research.
