When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That is my religion.
Burkhard Varnholt’s brother Volker has been part of Kids of Africa from the very beginning. His passion for the project and for Uganda came about after his first trip to the country in 2002. Volker and Burkhard flew to Uganda to install the first foster mothers for the children as well as the other on-site staff. They also travelled around the country and enjoyed a lengthy stay in the capital Kampala which turned out to be the basis for a long-term collaboration to achieve a common dream – namely the Kids of Africa Project.
Daniela, who has been working with Burkhard for many years now, has a passion for organisation. When Burkhard first launched the project, she offered her support without hesitation. A project of this magnitude is an enormous challenge in organisational terms – it requires coordination, event organisation, maintaining contacts with donors, travel and logistics management, and these are just a few of Daniela’s tasks. Without her selfless commitment and professional work, Kids of Africa would not be where it is today.
