PATRIP FOUNDATIONTOWARDS STABILITY FOR FRAGILE REGIONS

PATRIP – Regional integration and cross-border cooperation in fragile border areas of Afghanistan and West Africa

CROSS-BORDER INTEGRATION

THE KEY TO REGIONAL STABILISATION

The PATRIP Foundation was set up in November 2011 by the German state-owned KfW Development Bank on behalf of the German Federal Foreign Office, which remains PATRIP’s largest donor.

The PATRIP Foundation works together with trusted NGO partners to support border communities facing challenges of isolation, violence, and poverty.

PATRIP’s overal goal is to contribute to more stability in fragile countries, in terms of secured access to public services, as well as peaceful trade and community integration.

To achieve this, PATRIP’s projects mainly focus on building vital infrastructure and facilitating community dialogue in remote and fragile regions.

WHERE WE WORK

LOCATIONS

PATRIP is active in two regions: The border areas between Burkina Faso and its neighbouring countries Niger, Mali, and Benin, as well as between Afghanistan and its neighbours Tajikistan, Pakistan, and Iran.

Both border regions experience conflict and scarcity of resources. Often, the state’s presence is weak due to the remoteness of towns and villages.

Those who suffer most from this are the communities living in these areas, who struggle to access basic services such as schooling, health, transport, energy, and water supply.

THE PATRIP FOUNDATION APPROACH

PROJECTS

By working to connect communities to services, opportunities, and to each other, PATRIP fosters the conditions necessary for them to unlock their potential for social and economic exchange, growth, and overall development.

To deliver quality projects in two very different contexts, PATRIP works with pre-assessed NGO partners, a strong monitoring team on the ground, as well as frequent workshops in the project regions in order to provide plenty of opportunity for exchange among PATRIP and its partners.
