Each year, the Federal Foreign Office promotes around 120 to 140 projects of varying sizes worldwide, primarily in emerging and developing countries in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe.

The German Embassy in Windhoek has been able to regularly support a project of up to 60,000 euros a year in recent years. Thematic priorities of the funding include strengthening civil society, in particular supporting defenders of human rights, human rights institutions and the media, protecting and promoting women's rights, protecting and promoting the rights of children, and promoting economic, social and cultural  rights.
