Share the joy

"I celebrated my golden jubilee of my priesterhood with a three-day pilgrimage by foot with my former parish and with a High Mass. I look back with gratitude, praying for the MWI scholarship holders and their way with their communities. In favor of a donation for thescholarship holders I dispensed with gifts in order to express my spiritual and material solidarity with still emerging church in the south."

Pastor Günther Ludwig

Developing church and faith is an important task. My graduation, that I could realize thanks to the MWI, was a good  basis for my successful work.

The world – especially in Africa and Asia - is facing several challenges. They can only be met on the basis of knowledge and values.

For more than forty years, the MWI has supported the academic formation of young Christians in Africa and Asia. During their doctoral studies and on the basis of Christian values they acquire a sound knowledge in order to build up a future and thus assume leading positions in their home countries. 

With your support, we provide scholarships that help selected young people to successfully complete their studies – also in Germany and Europe – and to acquire the needed qualifaications for their future responsibilities in Africa and Asia.

We do believe in the principle of sustainability. With each scholarship we sow the seed in order to find better ways and means to achieve a sustained improvement of the living conditions of many people in the world. Thereby we fulfill our mission to develop the church and to improve the life of humankind on our earth. 

Your support, in whatever form, will help to qualify young people. This is indeed a sustainable investment in the future of our planet and helps to solve many urgent questions concerning our future.
