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
First we would like to share with you three great ideas some of you had of how to raise funds for our work here.. Wolfgang’s sister Annette is a teacher in an elementary school and her two classes support four of our orphans since a few years already. Now the school wanted to do something more for them and organized a “sponsorship-run” for all students. The teachers and local volunteers helped with the organization, the bakery and butchery of the village donated snacks, and the brave students gave their all on that day.

They also…


In the last few months our team almost doubled, a real boost to our work here. Six months ago Joe came from Switzerland. He is a professional handyman and a big asset in overseeing our many needed home improvements. Then Dom and Marie arrived with their daughter Natalie from South Africa. They are a great help, being veterans on many mission fields, and French speakers. The last newcomer is Mike who in his youth likes the challenge of a difficult field. We are very happy for this addition to our team as this way we can get more done.
