Since 1958 the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit (FNF), is the “foundation for freedom” in the Federal Republic of Germany. It aims to promote the goal of making the principle of freedom valid for the dignity of all people and in all areas of society, both in Germany and abroad.
In Germany, headquartered in Potsdam (near Berlin), the Foundation provides forums, mostly for the young generation, to exchange information and experiences in present-day contexts. A main focus is to promote civic education and inspire citizens to take part in the democratic processes.
Abroad, the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit works in over 65 countries worldwide.
In South Asia we have offices in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Additionally we work with partners in Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives. We promote the exchange of ideas within the region in areas such as economic cooperation, human rights and good governance.
The Foundation’s work is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, the German Foreign Office and, increasingly, from the European Union and other development aid policy bodies.
