(Shareholder and Managing Director)
Why have I persistently developed my impulse “nyendo” for over 20 years together with others in spite of all resistance? Because it raises and touches me deeply when I can help our youth to realize their power, to feel and unfold their innermost impulses. This is to me as breathtaking as a magical sunrise. Also because it refreshes my heart and expands my understanding, if I can always explore new and creative challenges in the social and educational framework and invent solutions. Nothing is fixed, everything is in flux, in change. I gratefully consider the multidimensional vision of nyendo.lernen as a umbrella over a wholesome space in which all are invited, according to certain rules of the game, to bring this learning movement to life.

To shape positively globalisation with nyendo is a wonderful way for students to develop the skills that are needed more and more for our future. As the director of nyendo, to accompany and advise you and your coaches and to maintain contact between the student companies and to organize events such as the closed-door meeting, is a matter which is close to my heart.
(Head of Institute Austria)
My way to nyendo led me through experiences in international projects,and as the business coordinator of my school, to a wonderful, chance meeting with Irmgard Wutte. After that, the step from entrepreneur coordinator to coach for social entrepreneurship was a logical one for me. My school, the commercial academy Ybbs, is the first Austrian of hopefully many other Austrian nyendo partner schools.
After 47 years of employment, of which 28 years were spent working in local government finances, I met Irmgard Wutte by chance on a mountain tour. After my first meeting with the Nyendo team, I knew immediately that I wanted to get involved. I am able contribute my professional experience, and volunteer with strong and sympathetic people who pursue goals that have always been close to my heart. How can we empower young people in industrialized countries to understand the problems and poverty in countries such as Kenya, Uganda, Nepal, etc., and make them dignified in their future private and working lives?
The happy faces of the students bring me joy. The actions and reports of Nyendo students are particularly inspiring. I am happy to publish it.
New ways in education and intercultural development are close to my heart, therefore I support this project with words and deeds.
The idea of nyendo.lernen convinced me right away. I look forward to being able to contribute to the fundraising team’s contribution to this project.
Sonja writes our monthly reports, summarizes reports and has a network that provides information to the relevant people.
I get involved with nyendo because I want to contribute to a better world. I find the experiment of regional currencies in the slums of Kenya particularly exciting!
I have programmed nyendo-lernen.de.
Since 2015, I have worked several times (in total more than a year) in coordinating and carrying out construction work at Irmgard’s Oseki farm. The latest project (construction of a house for farm manager Sammy Wathika) was carried out successfully from January to March 2019.

Nyendo is my heartfelt concern. I support the work in the background.
