One of my volunteers approached me at last year’s Berlin edition of beyond tellerrand. He told me about a project he started together with a few other people to bring education to parts in our world, where it is not self-evident. I love the idea and am totally up for it to support it. I want to get the word out and like to help them raising money. This is donation based and you are able to donate whatever you want.
Makuyuni e.V. is a private organisation in Germany that believes in the right to education for everyone, everywhere in the world. Their mission to provide “Education For All” means giving 264 million people worldwide the basic human right to receive education.
They started in Makuyuni, Tanzania – and that is why this is the organisation’s name. It’s a non-profit association founded in September 2018 by Jan Grandisch and Andreas Klein in Cologne.
In the year of their foundation they received €5000 in donations that they invested entirely in their school’s building project in Tanzania.
In concrete terms, this means that they already have given around 30 children the chance to have lessons in a new third classroom through new school desks, tables, and other essential learning materials. They also provide support for teaching structures at the school, such as the planned introduction of curricula.
Another important point is that they work according to the principle of helping people to help themselves and make it possible to set up educational structures rather than actively pursuing them. This means that they provide their friend Lalahe with support, ideas, and resources on-site, who then implements and coordinates the work himself.
