The Federal Foreign Office provides financial support for some 120 to 140 projects a year worldwide, predominantly in emerging and developing countries in Africa, Asia, Central and South America as well as in eastern Europe. Amounts of approximately 10,000 euros can frequently contribute to tangible and lasting improvements of the human rights situation on the ground.
