The Diakonische Werk Hamburg is involved in partnerships with Hamburg’s Sister Cities Saint Petersburg and Dar es Salaam. In Russia our social services focus on the homeless in Saint Petersburg. For the Sister City partnership with Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, we operate a cooperation desk, an information point for everyone interested in the Partnership. We foster the cooperation and further development of the network. The AFP-EL Stipend Programme invites specialist from the Sister Cities in the global south to obtain furthering education in Hamburg. In addition we are engaged with our partner from Dar es Salaam in our own project centering on healthcare in Hamburg and Dar es Salaam.
