How it all began

History

Kids of Africa was born out of an unexpected begging letter from Uganda to Burkhard Varnholt. And from a positive response. This was in 1999 and was followed by a friendship and an idea. The idea of giving children without families protection, love and education. Because these are the strongest forces in the world. The result is a wonderful story whose future has already begun to shine.

Sustainable help on site

Ownership

Kids of Africa is a Swiss non-profit organisation registered in Zurich and Uganda. The organisation is funded exclusively by private donations. We have no denominational, political or corporate sponsorship. In a way, we are a “family affair” – by families for families. That is all.

The people behind Kids of Africa

Management

After almost twenty years, we know that good management is crucial for sustainability. Kids of Africa is managed by a small, dedicated and long-standing team.

What sets us apart from other projects.

Principles

Our focus is on direct, sustainable and independent assistance.

Kids of Africa guarantees that one hundred per cent of every franc donated reaches our many protégés.

Because we believe in each of them! Thank you for your help!
