Our Vision

A way out of poverty and lack of opportunities

Discrimination, violence, exploitation, exclusion. Early pregnancies, early school leaving, prostitution, HIV / AIDS. No access to education, self-determination and financial independence. In Kenya this is a bitter reality for many girls and young women. With the establishment of a competence center in the Kisumu region (Kenya), we are working with our association Hope for Girls - HOFOGI to break through this poverty spiral. Targeted training and support measures will empower local girls and young women in their self-reliance and personal responsibility with the aim of sustainably and positively improving their lives
