Our Goals

We are a non-profit organization, that helps to improve the living standards of children in need, single parents and disabled people in areas such as clean water and providing one meal a day.

Your donations benefit 100% your chosen project.

We work with local people doing their work voluntarily.

Our Project

Empower children

To be able to attend school every day, it`s important that the basic needs in life are covered.

To create an environment in the afternoon after the classes

The challenge is to motivate the poorest children to join activities after their classes.

They need a structured day because many of their parents are at work, some of them are having an alcohol problem or they live in a violent home.

That`s the reason why we plan soccer and volleyball teams with diffrent skill levels.

Childcare in the Township of Mondesa

Childcare in Mondesa is usually located in simple rooms, mainly too small for a group of children to play and move around. Toys and other learning tools to activate their senses aren`t provided. There is no money for that and the women in charge have no degree in education.

Help women to start their own small business.

We plan to organize special ladies events in the community to teach them new things. For example we will lend them sewing machines, so they may start producing art works by themselves. This will give hope for a better future for them and their families.

Provide a network between generations

The whole community will benefit from it, because the students can learn and achieve a lot of things from the older generations. The older generation will be involved in after school activities and on the other hand children and students will visit elderly and disabled people at their homes to spend time with them.

Yoga4Mondesa

As the experince shows children practicing Yoga are more balanced and they achieve better results at school.

 

Festus Gonteb Library

The library is a project which is keeping us busy. We painted the outside, put a new alarmsystem on, organized new bookshelves and now the 8 laptops and the xerox are ready so the students can write their essays and print them out. The most difficult part is to find books for all the diffrent ages. Last but not least we have to get a librarian who does the handling with all the books.

Our Achievements

Festus Gonteb Primary School

  • We are helping to provide a warm meal a day.
  • We provided 8 laptops, cushion seats and games for the library.
  • We donated clothes to children who are in need.

Our Partners

Nande Junias is the cofounder and the president of the Mondesa School and Community Foundation. He is the owner of Nande Junias Explorer Tours in Swakopmund. He is financally independent and he is in charge of the projects in the township. Renate Epper has access to the bank account and surveys how the money is spent.
