Going to school - and not getting out - is absolutely necessary to create a poverty-free future. One focus of our work is the promotion of education for school children. The biggest challenge that paralyzes education is poverty. We hope to give many children and young adults a vision - through education, because education changes our lives.
Favour Förderverein e.V. implements these relief measures, especially in slums and rural regions in Kenya :
Promotion of basic education for children
Procurement of school supplies
Preparing for an after-school career - this helps the children develop and follow their dreams. We achieve this in various ways, for example through early vocational training, visits to various companies and workplaces, etc
Financial support for young adults through vocational training.
Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world - Nelson Mandela
In Kenya, many children and adults die every year with preventable diseases such as malaria, typhoid, diarrhea and pneumonia, etc.
Almost half of all Kenyans cannot afford to visit a doctor in the event of illness.
Poverty and health are closely linked. Health problems can plunge people into poverty or prevent them from being released. Poor families or families living in communities where there is a lack of suitable medical facilities are more likely to suffer from illnesses because they are either not treated at all or are not adequately treated.
The association implements these relief measures, especially in slums and rural regions in Kenya:
Promoting a healthy lifestyle through initiatives, campaigns or training in various community groups. A sustainable health measure will ultimately also promote disease prevention.
Treat disease through annual medical camps and care for patients through our local partner hospital.
Providing our patients with adequate medication at least during the medical camps.
Prevention is the best medicine
Integration in Germany
The members of the association assist refugees and migrants as voluntary individuals. Whether locals or migrants, as "bridge builders" we want to help refugees and migrants to find their way in German society. We are in the process of finding out in which areas we can effectively offer progressive help.
To achieve this, we work and learn at the same time under the direction of the integration center in our region.
What we do:
Regular visits to our local refugee accommodation in Bad Friedrichshall: we work to create proximity and an open ear for migrants and refugees.
You are welcome to join us if you live in our region. Otherwise, we recommend that you contact your local integration center for advice on how to help.
Get involved in your community!
