About us

Our foundation Jambo Hakuna Matata aims to support projects for underprivileged children and disabled people in Africa and Kenya in particular. At least 4 times a year, volunteers from our foundation travel to Kenya – completely at their own expense – to work on projects in the field of housing, education and care together with our local employees and the local population.

For example, several technical schools have already been supported, we support and renovate 4 primary schools, we have rebuilt an orphanage and built a completely new orphanage and under our care and support the local hospice with materials.
