Our organisation Schwäbisch Hall Friends of Africa, is an alliance of people with various backgrounds living in and around Schwäbisch Hall, near Stuttgart in Germany. We support measures providing effective help for people in developing countries. In addition, we support cross-cultural meetings as wells as groups having the aim of self-help in Africa. This is mainly achieved by organising voluntary exchanges and educational events. We support various social projects in Africa.
In and around Schwäbisch Hall we organise cultural and political development events as well as talks and seminars on the topic “one world”, on the concept of global learning and on cross-cultural communication.
