Social development calls for critical reflection. This is a principle to which Kurt A. Körber felt bound both as a German and as a world citizen. The foundation established by him takes on this social challenge at a national and an international level.

Acting as an operating foundation, it develops and promotes programmes for which it retains full responsibility, while still remaining open to suggestions and cooperations.
