A strong initiative for weak regions

In 2010, Jürgen Fuhrländer set up the GfW Foundation for the Protection of the Earth’s Climate and Natural Resources with a generous contribution to the foundation’s assets.

Help us preserve the Earth’s riches!

By supporting us and our project partners in Asia, Africa and Latin America, you are supporting the use of renewable energies and eco-compatible farming methods

Together, we are working against the destruction of the environment and land-grabbing in the interests of an exorbitant growth philosophy, helping marginalised and threatened communities to enforce their right to land and a nature-compatible lifestyle. 

Impressions of initiative in Southafrica

The climate change began long ago

… and it is having the greatest impact on people in developing countries. If we sit back and do nothing, island realms that are still thriving today will sink into the ocean. There will be more and more heat waves and flooding that ruin harvests and cause famine. The hardest hit will be the poorest of the poor, as they have next to no chance of reacting to the climate change.

Our GfW foundation for the Protection of the Earth’s Climate and Natural Resources supports projects that not only alleviate the consequences of the climate change, but also fight its causes. We are convinced that the climate change is not an inevitable fate. But time is running out – we have to tackle the issue now.

You can help!

By making a contribution to the foundation’s assets of any amount you can support our work on a permanent basis. Your money is not spent, but invested, and generates for an unlimited period revenue that is used only for the purpose of the foundation. We will give you regular updates on the development of the foundation and the projects sponsored with your support. 

We have set up our foundation under the umbrella of the Brot für die Welt foundation
The Brot für die Welt foundation is a legally independent non-profit foundation established under church law and supports the work of “Brot für die Welt” (“Bread for the World”) and the Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe (Christian catastrophe aid charity).


Have we aroused your interest?

If the integrity of creation is a matter close to your heart, a contribution to the foundation’s assets in the GFW foundation for the Protection of the Earth’s Climate and Natural Resources is an appropriate and permanently effective investment

Together, we can change the world – moving step by step from small beginnings to a world in which not only we but also future generations are offered the chance of a self-determined life in an environment worth living in.

Questions on the foundation, its purpose or its projects should be sent to: Stiftung GFW.
