This website has been compiled with the utmost care. Nevertheless, The GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) gives no guarantee that the information provided is current, accurate, complete or error-free. The GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) accepts no liability for damage or loss arising directly or indirectly from the use of this website, provided it has not been caused intentionally or by gross negligence.
The GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) expressly reserves the right to modify, append and delete the website in part or in whole without prior notice, or to halt publication completely or for a limited period.
This website contains links to external sites. Responsibility for the content of the external sites linked to this website always lies with their respective publishers. When the links to these sites were first posted, The GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) checked the third-party content to establish whether it could give rise to civil or criminal liability. However, the constant review of the linked external sites cannot reasonably be expected without concrete indication of a violation of rights. If the GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) itself becomes aware or is notified by a third party that a linked external site gives rise to civil or criminal liability, it will remove the link to this site immediately. The GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) expressly dissociates itself from such content.
Cartographic presentations in no way constitute recognition under international law of boundaries and territories.
Links to the GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) homepage may be created, provided the GIZ regional project “Social Rights for Vulnerable Groups” (SoRi) website opened is then the sole content of the browser window.

This site uses Matomo to analyse user behaviour. Cookies collect information about user behaviour on the site, including the abbreviated IP address of the device being used, and send it to the server. The server anonymises the information and stores it for the purpose of analysing user behaviour. The state of current technology ensures that once information has been anonymised, it can no longer be traced back to the originating device or connection. Information produced by cookies is shared only with the internally operated server. It is never shared with third parties. Data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1 f) of the GDPR for the purpose of pursuing the controller’s legitimate interests, in this case to improve the website. You have the right to object to the processing of your user data for the purpose of user behaviour analysis. The link below gives you an opportunity to deactivate collection of your user data:
NB: Opt-out cookie: an opt-out cookie is stored on your device to prevent your user data from being collected when you visit this site. For the cookie to be effective, it must be stored on every device you use to visit the site. As the cookie is stored in the browser (the program used to access websites), it must be stored on each browser if you use more than one browser per device (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome or Mozilla Firefox). You should also note that if you delete all cookies, you will also delete the opt-out cookie and will have to reinstall it.

For contact forms, your title, first name, family name and email address are processed. Under Article 6 (1 b) of the GDPR, this data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, in this case for the purpose of receiving your enquiry entered in the contact form. Your data is never shared with third parties. Your data is transmitted to GIZ using SSL encryption, which makes it very difficult for unauthorised parties to access your data. As with enquiries sent to GIZ via email, enquiries sent via a contact form will be deleted after the purpose of the contacting have been dealt with.
Retention of data
Personal data are regularly deleted when
- they are no longer needed for contractual purposes (e.g. for employment, top-ups, rental, sale or service contracts)
- when the individuals concerned have not given any separate authorisation
- when statutory data storage obligations and periods have expired
Reference to user rights
You are entitled to:
- to object to data processing,
- enquire about your personal data and its processing
- to have this corrected if necessary, or to request restriction of processing or the erasure of the data
The data will then be erased.
