We thank all our supporters! Without them, we would not be able to carry out the projects together with our Kenyan partners.
Since the foundation of our association there have been many creative projects.
Here we want to report about our supporters.
We look forward to your feedback!
Students from Astrid Lindgren School in Kempten are committed to helping physically disabled children in Kenya
About 200 students of the Astrid Lindgren School and the partner classes of the elementary school Kempten Nord laced the running shoes. They had the best running weather on 10/16/2019 for their sponsoring run.
During their charity run they covered a distance of 300 meters until the shoes and of course the tires of the wheelchairs smoked!
The money supports the expansion of the children's home Hope and Faith. Here, around 47 children and adolescents with physical and multiple disabilities find a home.
The organizer Tatjana Strasser-Busch emphasizes: "Our good cause is the support of the association Hope and Faith in Kenya. It is a school like ours, for children with physical disabilities. "
In addition to much fun in the common project, we had a proud result: a donation over 6000 €.
Matthias and Nadine from the IoG Group Ulm on exploration in Kenya
Their goal: The improvement of the water and wastewater supply in the Sheltered Workshops.
Matthias and Nadine spent three busy weeks of intensive work. They checked the current situation and took samples. Together with Hubert Senger and James Gichuru, they visited all the facilities and discussed possible improvements.
Additional issues were e.g. the MMSS biogas plant, the Ndarugu River and the public water supply, a visit to the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) and contact with potential cooperation partners.
More exciting information can be found on their blog on the IoG homepage
Now the planning work can start. Thank you for your commitment!
A nice party and a proud sum
Klaus-Peter Brünig the chairman of our association is pleased: "We got a check with 11.471,80 €! That's really incredible! "
The money was collected at a sponsoring run at Montessori School in Starnberg just before their summer holidays. The run was organized by teacher Wolfgang Donhauser.
About 250 Montessori students ran a circuit around the school building as often as they could. Sponsors paid a fixed amount per round. So they collected the five-digit sum.
Several hundred guests celebrated a nice party. "Everyone has contributed to this," says Christa Maurer from the Montessori School Public Relations Group. "That was the big Montessori family."
We sincerely thank you for the generous donation
We were very pleased when we got a donation from the Passionsspielgruppe Dirgenheim this year. Every two or three years, passion plays take place in the small village of Dirgenheim in the Danube-Ries area. The entire income is donated to needy people. This year's play "The Unbelieving Thomas" inspired hundreds of spectators. We also could not believe it, when we received a check of several thousand euros.
Asante sana on behalf of our association and the people of Munyu.
A successful collaboration with the Weltladen Weißenhorn
At the big children's party in Weißenhorn the Weltladen Weissenhorn and OASA have been working together for the second time:
- A lady from Weißenhorn with Cameroon roots braided children`s hair and made a lot of girls happy.
- The parents could find information about current projects in Munyu.
- The visitors bought jewelry, aprons and bags. All the items had been produced in the Maria Magdalena Sheltered Workshops.
The income goes directly to the arts and crafts workshop.
