Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch (SES) is a German Senior Volunteer who has been working in Pakistan (and in many oher countries) for over quarter Century. Now Pakistan is like his second home (that is why I call him Chaudhry Norbert now). He started working in a remote Punjab village Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka - some 80 Kilometers from Lahore - and over time have made it a model village. His special interests are appropriate technology, preservation of rural culture, housing, handicrafts, communication and information, income generation for rural communities (through self help projects) and promotion of academic coordination.

This time in Pakistan, Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch was invited to Government College University, Lahore where he delivered a lecture on “Open and Closed System of Development Demonstrated Through an Example of a Village Project in Pakistan.”

Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch is a retired Professor, Architect, Engineer, MBA by Profession and presently a social worker who represents German Society for Promotion of Culture.

The DGFK (German Society for Promotion of Culture) was officially registered in 1973 at the district court Berlin-Charlottenburg.

The main activities of the society in the beginning revolved around promotion of culture in its widest sense. About 133 projects were initiated or supported which included projects of art exhibitions, lectures as well as concerts, film projects and festivals.

A number of publications were published and events initiated and organized in Berlin, Germany and other European and Non-European countries.

Since 1990 however, most of the activities of the society are concentrated in the Non-European regions.
