Glasses for Uganda!

We had the great opportunity to visit the WIAF-Brillenverwertungsstelle in St.Wendel together with Mrs. and Mr. Roos from the Gudd-Zweck UG and Dr. med. Andrea Werner-Hauth (Rotary Club Tholey-Bostalsee). It was a chance to get to know their important work, to present our own vision for Uganda and to come up with the decision to also distribute glasses in our Ugandan community.

First International Day of Education!

January 2019:

We`re having the First International Day of Education on 24th of January! The UN`s general assembly adopted a resolution back in December 2018 which agreed that 24th of January shall be dedicated to education from now on. The UN sends a strong message with this day, recognizing the fundamental role of education for peace and development! Education is not only a human right, but also a path to sustainable development! Education for all poses enormous challenges for us: education opens up a path out of poverty into a promising future for children. BUT: Worldwide, 265 million children and adolescents do not attend school or do not graduate! Of these, more than 20% are in elementary school age! Poverty, discrimination, armed conflicts or the effects of climate change prevent their education.


Donation from KIZER

We are happy about the 750€ donation from KIZER Drinks as a result from their special sale deal in November: 5€ per bottle were donated to us!
