"I celebrated my golden anniversary as a priest 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 fellows and their way with their communities. In favor of a donation for the fellows I renounced to gifts and thereby I want to express the spiritual and material solidarity with the young church in the south."
Pastor Günther Ludwig
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 bases 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 qualify 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 ameliorate in the long term the situation of many people in the world. Thereby we fulfill our commitment 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.
