Who we are

The Exposure- und Dialogprogramme e.V. (EDP Association) is a non-funding charitable association that offers extraordinary leadership training programmes on poverty-related subjects for decision-makers from politics, the business sector, the Churches and the civil society. Within these programmes, we enable personal meetings with people in developing and newly industrializing countries to promote a cross-divisional, comprehensive networking of national and international actors.

The members and responsible bodies of our association are appointed by the German Commission of Justice and Peace from Catholic organisations and aid institutions.
Representatives from the sectors of politics, business, international development cooperation and the Churches cooperate across political parties and denominations in the board of trustees and the advisory council.

Cooperation partners for planning and performance of Exposure and Dialogue Programmes include agencies of official development cooperation, Church-owned aid organisations, NGOs and even private businesses that assume special responsibility for sustainable development.
