Our projects are truly matters of the heart.
Each project is special and connected with many emotions. With every mission, we experience unique moments with the team on-site, and volunteers, learn wonderful, heartfelt stories, and get to know inspiring people. Not only can we give something, but we also get a lot back. Gratitude, hope, and joy. This makes it all the more important for us to be active in as many places as possible.

Water Project - Tanzania (July 2021)
In Mafinga, Tanzania, we wanted to make a long-term impact on the community. The most sustainable solution was to provide a water source for the school. Therefore, a borehole water source and infrastructure was built to supply the toilets, kitchen and common areas.

Sri Lanka (March 2019)

Vegetable Garden Project - Tanzania (January 2022)
