The vision of a children’s village in Africa

“If we change the world for a child, perhaps that very child will one day change the world.”

Burkhard Varnholt

Just like a pebble thrown into the water causes waves.

“It takes a village to raise a child” says a well-known African proverb. Kids of Africa began in 2003 with a village for children in need, starting with ten foster families in a safe, child-friendly environment.

Volunteer work, sponsorships, sustainability and expertise make our children’s charity cost-effective. 100% of every donation reaches the local community. As the founder, I vouch for that. For over twenty years.
