About us.

The Alliance Development Works is an alliance of German development and relief agencies providing long-term aid in the aftermath of major disasters and in emergencies. The association brings together larger and smaller, church and non-church development and relief agencies along with their respective specialities. Pooling these competencies enables efficient and effective action. The agencies continue to act independently, but also support each other and co-ordinate their activities. Donations collected jointly are divided up equally among the organisations in the alliance.


The development and relief agencies involved all have many years of experience in development co-operation. Our work is focused on the poorest of the poor in Africa, Asia and Latin America – people who have lost everything through war and disasters, the landless, street children, those who have been deprived of their rights. What these people do not need is instantaneous success stories that satisfy the media; they need lasting changes. Emergency relief alone is not enough. Our goal is to fight the causes of want, poverty and conflicts.
