Aims and objectives

Bringing people together

AGEH sees itself as an interface between development agencies looking for expert personnel for development work projects and qualified experts who wish to put their extensive expertise and their social and intercultural skills to good use. We bring together people who share the belief that everyone in the world is entitled to humane living conditions.

Accordingly, it is our aim to alleviate human suffering through intercultural cooperation and by promoting a form of personnel development cooperation that centres on people and their individual needs. As a recognised personnel service provider in the field of development work, we meet this important responsibility by providing expert support, advice and ongoing assistance to organisations and development workers alike. Together, we create the best possible conditions for effective on-location project work.

Supplying qualified experts

Development cooperation organisations rely on our expert assistance to find the right personnel for their long-term projects, short-term measures or ad-hoc assignments in the field of development cooperation. We provide ongoing advice and support throughout the entire recruitment process: from defining requirements and overseeing selection procedures to arranging social security for development workers during their assignments abroad. Organisations also benefit from our specialist expertise in generating third-party funds and administering funds in a trustee capacity. Here you can find out more about what we offer organisations.

Support, training and ongoing assistance

People who decide to work in the field of development cooperation and have the necessary skills and know-how receive expert advice and assistance from us – from the application and development stage to the overseas deployment, return and reintegration. Together with our partners, we offer an extensive range of training and professional development courses at all levels, which constitute a key component of our services for AGEH development workers.
