Since the year 2000 our annual reports provide an overview over the progress of our projects. Apart from summaries concerning the current project this section also covers completed projects. Thereby we trace the history of “Active Direct Help”. Additionally we regularly publish the recent developments to our current project in detail.

Annual Reports
Life in the bush is like another world: people there have no running water, no drinking water, no electricity, lots of sicknesses, as good as no medical system, terrible heat, deadly snakes, difficult “road” conditions and incredible poverty. Most people only eat once a day and that very basic. We spent two months in the bush in West Kasai, 1100 km South-West of Kinshasa near the Angolan border, researching the possibility of building a school in Mushapo, a village with ca. 2500 inhabitants and no school. It wasn’t an easy decision but we committed to accept the challenge. Our friend Michel and his company partners from SADR have a large farm there and offered to assist us with the needed logistics in their camp: transport, room and board etc. Two brave volunteers from Germany, Jens and Melanie, came for almost two months and were a big help in many ways.…


10 years ago we founded a charitable association called Active Direct Help and since then are actively bringing help directly to where it is supposed to go.

We were also able to help the Pygmies who are slowly being forced to settle at the border of the rainforest which is being cut down and thus they are losing their…


The last three years we’ve been working together with Pastor Theophile and his association SABEC and have run a feeding scheme for 100 orphans. We bought two hectares of land for them in Mokali and planted different fruit trees and around 700 pineapple plants which are growing well there. Since almost two years we are also sponsoring the schooling for those children who did not go to school yet. This project started as a joint venture together with our partners. Since about one year, as we were planning to build a school for the orphans, it became clear that they wanted to work more and more independent from us. We realized that it was time to turn things over slowly to them and help them stand on their own feet. P. Theophile said: “It is good for us or we will fall asleep”.
