Agenda 2014

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 through Thursday, February 27, 2014; Kenya:
For many Europeans, Africa is still a continent associated with clichés on safaris and catastrophes. Most reports on the continent center on war activities, crimes or natural disasters including famine and drought. Few reports cover well-working parts of those countries' economies or the positive aspects of life south of the Sahara. Participants of our project trip will experience what true African life is about, including the diversity of ethnic groups, animals, the beauty of a unique geography, the Indian Ocean, and last but not least poverty and its implications. Without participating in the everyday life of our African partners, we have no chance of gaining any insight into what our work is all about. To this end, we will visit some of the projects sponsored by our society.
Travel details including particulars on how to participate are available at the society's main office. Note that this is a private endeavour with all travel costs being paid by those joining in (nothing paid by the society).
Registration deadline: December 15, 2013. Call the society's office at +49(0)7441905416 for additional detail or send an e-mail to foerderkreis.kenya.freudenstadt@web.de if you are interested.
