Our partners

Since it was first founded, SELAM has mainly been funded by private individuals. In addition, we also receive many collections from church congregations as well as regular support from a few companies and foundations. We thank all our partners who have supported us in a variety of ways in recent years. Are you also interested in a partnership? Here you can find more information about the possibilities.
