Ons Plek is the only non-profit children's home in Cape Town for female street children. It is the home of 34 girls who are used to rejecting adults and authorities who have been neglected and therefore live outside the social norm. The work at Ons Plek is based on round-the-clock care, psychosocial counselling, educational opportunities and complex reunification work with the family. The aim is to offer the girls a stable environment they had never known before. At Ons Plek the girls learn that there is an alternative to life on the street. In the Siviwe-Haus they experience intensive psychosocial care with therapy, school attendance and job-oriented training: in this way they prepare themselves constructively for their future. The Ukondla prevention programme in Philippi - with daily homework supervision, group work and psychosocial support - prevents school dropouts. This intensive commitment has drastically reduced the number of girls who have to live on the streets from 100 to 4 a year.



Learn Nyendo Social entrepreneurship, development cooperation and intercultural relations - all that pupils learn with nyendo! Our organization accompanies nyendo student companies over three years in social entrepreneurship projects.

Around 200 students at 9 schools have already been able to make a difference with their student companies!

Ubomi is Xhosa and means "life";. In the Ubomi Project House, township children get a chance to survive, a warm and healthy meal, homework supervision and language instruction, life skills training as well as play, sports and creative activities. Over a million people live in Khayelitsha, the largest township in South Africa. As in all townships, poverty, unemployment and a lack of prospects still prevail. The children suffer the most from it. There can be no question of equal opportunities for them. Many children lack basic necessities such as food, sleeping places, health care and education. They are almost always on their own and spend their time on the street, often a dangerous place. In Khayelitsha in Site C, a focal point with many street children and high youth crime, we opened the first Ubomi House in January 2017. In January 2018 our second Ubomi facility followed in the neighbouring township of Gugulethu. A total of 60 children and 20 young people now have a refuge where they can experience family warmth, discover their abilities and thus increase their chances for a decent future.



Bildung für Kinder in Afghanistan e. V. We are a young, non-profit association based in Wolfs-burg. Our goal is to enable the children of Afghanistan to attend school. The majority of aid organisations operating in Afghanistan concentrate on the north of the country, as it is usually very dangerous in the contested south. But it is precisely there that the children need hope and perspectives. Our support therefore concentrates on the province of Logar south of Kabul. The formative school years in which the character and potential of a child unfolds are unfortunately not a matter of course in Afghanistan. But every child has the right to receive education in order to find their way in this world.



Children and young people come to us with many questions about life. Are my parents gonna split up? Why do I have this disease? Why is my father violent? Why don't I live with my birth parents? What do you think the sea looks like? And in general, who am I and how do I fit into this world? There is no question that children and young people often come to us from us, sometimes with heavy luggage from a very stressful family system. Or it is parents who turn to us, who cannot afford a holiday. Every journey is also always a journey to oneself. Our events and camps are a place of freedom to get to know yourself better. We teach the art of surfing. How do you manage to develop a good state, to listen to your inner voice, to go beyond boundaries and to face your fears there? And so it happens that children and adolescents outgrow themselves in a very short time. They dare to be themselves for once.



Through the work in the pupils'; bistro at the Döhrender Turm, the children receive an educational offer based on Christian values and social behaviour on three afternoons a week. In open offers and group work, integration is lived, violence and addiction prevention are promoted and the individual personalities of the children as well as their social skills are strengthened. In this way the children are introduced to meaningful and active leisure activities. They can develop their creative, motor and cognitive abilities and are thus made strong for school and extracurricular everyday life. Regardless of their social, cultural and religious background, the Schübi offers pupils a meeting place with open and low-threshold offerings. At the same time it is a contact point for children where support, information, advice, help and promotion are possible. In addition to regular activities, employees also offer children project-oriented, temporary or themed activities.

PLAY HANDBALL ZA is a sport and development organisation in South Africa with a focus on handball. Handball should be supported and established as a new sport. Special attention is paid to the joint activity of boys and girls in the sport. PLAY HANDBALL ZA started with the idea of Nicola Scholl, a former player of the German Handball Bundesliga. Nicola recognised the potential and opportunities that handball would bring to young people, especially girls, in South Africa. The "new"; sport handball stands for the strengthening of young women and as a peaceful game to bring people of all skin colours together.



When I break my arm in Germany, suffer a laceration or give birth to a child, I go to a hospital. This is a matter of course for us. It doesn't cost me anything extra. Because health insurance is compulsory in Germany. If the same things happen in Kenya - more precisely in Likoni, a suburb of Mombasa - it looks worse. For many treatments people have to take a ferry to Mombasa. One can imagine that this is a difficult journey, especially with larger injuries. Many also do without it, because they cannot afford to visit the doctor at all. Because there is no compulsory health insurance in Kenya. People have to pay for every treatment. They can only afford food and a roof over their heads. Therefore the association LIKONI - Healtcare for all e. V. has opened a hospital in cooperation with the African doctor Dr. Cheruiyot. The idea is to build a hospital with all the important basic examination options. Thanks to the support of sponsors, poor families and street children are also treated free of charge in this hospital.



The desire to do something for the countless street children of Kenya. . . Each of us had his own motivation for it, Dennis Mugo, for example, spent his own childhood on the street. With the help of a pastor, he managed to leave the road behind and reshape his life. What has happened to him, he now wants to make possible for other children. We started to organize food expenses for the street children in Mombasa. This has enabled us to gain the trust of the children and young people and find out how best to help them. It quickly became clear to us that the children need a home, which offers them protection and security, in which they experience love and security, as well as a school education, which enables them to stand on their own two feet later in life. In June 2012 we opened the Springs of Hope children's home with the help of donations from Germany and took in our first 6 children.



The orphanage "Little Angel"; is located in Likoni, one of the poorer districts of the Kenyan coastal town Mombasa. The home is a home for 30 children between the ages of 2 and 17 whose living conditions we want to improve. In addition, there are classrooms on the home grounds where children from the neighbourhood can also receive an education. Our main concern is to help people to help themselves. The education of the children is especially important to us, because we want to give the orphans a solid basis for their later life. In addition, we want to make sure that the children can continue on a steady path even after leaving school and the home.



As a non-profit association from Hamburg, VISIONS FOR CHILDREN has made it its mission to stand up for the right of children to education. So that they have the chance of a self-determined and perspective-rich life. The focus is in particular on the promotion of school education. Where wars, armed hostilities or natural disasters have destroyed schools, the help of the association begins. He supports the reconstruction, expands the buildings, prepares sanitary rooms and equips the schools with inventory and teaching materials. The efforts should make it possible or easier for the children to attend school. Each school is therefore carefully selected and specifically supported.
