We are a young company and yet we combine years of experience in international development projects. In order to structurally improve our commitment in the long term, it was decided in 2019 to transfer the successful business activities of Nisar & Sickert GbR into a new corporate form: SiCon International Development GmbH.

Our employees stand out with extensive experience in the development sector. We have complemented the team, which has already been working together for many years, with new experts who are responsible for putting our expanded range of services into practice.

On behalf of KfW Entwicklungsbank and the Aga Khan Foundation our team has –within the framework of the so-called Northern Afghanistan stabilization program –provided technical support for the implementation of more than 200 infrastructural projects in recent years and, by anchoring the projects in society, has made a major contribution to the overall success of said program.

Personal Support & Supervision

Whether it is about technical planning or social impact analysis -people are at the center of our endeavors. That is why we are always personally available to our project partners. Our consulting begins with the project idea but does not end with the project handover -we aim to think comprehensively and long-term.

Universal Approach

Our aim is to restore people’s confidence in their future and publicly available structures, especially in crisis areas. To achieve this, we combine our technical and financial expertise with experience in social work. This comprehensive approach is important to us to ensure that development work can have a sustainable impact.

Intercultural Responsibility

Goals can only be achieved together. Both, our projects and our multinational team, require a high degree of sensitivity for open opinion-forming and individual cultural and religious needs. We observe this responsibility in our processes and always work at eye-level.

our team

As a team we bring together decades of experience in development cooperation and state-of-the-art expertise. Our employees in the construction industry, financial management and social sector are regularly supported by consultation with technical experts from outside the company.
