Our Project Application

Before Knorr-Bremse Global Care e. V. approves the funding of a project, the underlying concept of the application must be carefully examined. In doing so we give preference to projects that address our key objective: promoting the impact-orientated self-sufficiency and self-responsibility of people in need.

On this site you can download the project application form and the guiding principles. We kindly ask you to read both documents carefully before applying for funding.

To ensure that our support is target-oriented and efficiently allocated, and the funds provided by us are used as effectively and meaningfully as possible, we require an application for funding that is based on a logical framework.

Only then can we contribute to structurally relevant and broad-based changes, open new perspectives and achieve a sustainable outcome.
