Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ)

The Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) exchanges knowledge with GIZ on topics such as equality between women and men, women in armed conflicts, the fight against trafficking in women, family policy, care for the elderly and the implementation of the rights of children and young people.

In addition, a German-American internship programme run by GIZ on behalf of BMFSFJ gives young Germans an opportunity to gain initial work experience in the USA. Another project promotes the exchange of knowledge and ideas between youth social work experts from Germany and the USA.
