The objective is to create jobs and  apprenticeships and to improve working conditions in the African partner countries.

Website Analytics

This site uses Matomo to analyse user behaviour. Cookies collect information about user behaviour on the site, including the abbreviated IP address of the device being used, and send it to the server. The server anonymises the information and stores it for the purpose of analysing user behaviour. The state of current technology ensures that once information has been anonymised, it can no longer be traced back to the originating device or connection. Information produced by cookies is shared only with the internally operated server. It is never shared with third parties. Data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1 f) of the GDPR for the purpose of pursuing the controller’s legitimate interests, in this case to improve the website. You have the right to object to the processing of your user data for the purpose of user behaviour analysis. The link below gives you an opportunity to deactivate collection of your user data.

NB: Opt-out cookie

An opt-out cookie is stored on your device to prevent your user data from being collected when you visit this site. For the cookie to be effective, it must be stored on every device you use to visit the site. As the cookie is stored in the browser (the program used to access websites), it must be stored on each browser if you use more than one browser per device (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome or Mozilla Firefox). You should also note that if you delete all cookies, you will also delete the opt-out cookie and will have to reinstall it.

Contact and order forms

For contact and order forms, your title, first name, family name, email address, phone number and organization are processed. Under Article 6 (1 b) of the GDPR, this data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, in this case for the purpose of receiving your enquiry entered in the contact form. The GIZ will share this data to the following implementing organisations, which are part of the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation (KfW, sequa, DAAD, Engagement Global, Physikalisch - Technische Bundesanstalt PTB) for the purpose of registering parties interested in the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation and for contacting them for further processing. The data transfer takes place with the active consent of the user. Data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1 f) of the GDPR.

The GIZ takes part of the Special Initiative with the following projects: Global programme “Training and Job Creation”, Country programme “Job partnerships and SME promotion” in the partner countries, “develoPPP for jobs” and “Allianz für Produktqualität”, Digital4Jobs – Digital transformation for growth with high impact on employment in Tunisia, Clusterpromotion in the agriculture sector and the food industry in Ethiopia. Data will be shared with the following projects: Global programme “Training and Job Creation”, country programme “Job partnerships and SME promotion” in the partner countries, “develoPPP for jobs” and “Allianz für Produktqualität”, Digital4Jobs – Digital transformation for growth with high impact on employment in Tunisia, Clusterpromotion in the agriculture sector and in the food industry in Ethiopia. The purpose of collecting the data is to enable the relevant project or implementing organisations to establish contact with parties interested in the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation.

Your data is transmitted to GIZ using SSL encryption, which makes it very difficult for unauthorised parties to access your data. As with enquiries sent to GIZ via email, enquiries sent via a contact form are deleted after the end of the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation or once they have been dealt with.

Your data is not transferred to third countries.
