The students in different semesters establish and lead independent companies. Through these companies, they operate in fair trade products from Kenya, such as coffee or African handicrafts. In addition, donations are also collected. All of the company proceeds go 100% to the African partner schools, where they are used specifically for sustainable projects. As part of an educational trip, the young people visit their African project partners and share their life in the slum with them.
We are educational pioneers who invite a new generation of young social entrepreneurs as young schoolchildren to become effective in today’s world of change, to collaborate in shaping it, and to unleash their own potential – as a team, across schools, and together with our partners. In this sense, our movement unites young people in German-speaking countries and in Kenya.
