We - the non-profit association Pamoja Africa e. V., founded in 2014 - support the children’s home Maua Villa in the Kivingoni area (Kenya). Our mission is to operate and further develop the children’s home, thereby providing a loving life and a hopeful perspective for the future to the needy children of the region.
In the past years we have already achieved a lot in Maua Villa. Thanks to our supporters we were able to finance a solar-powered well, build five houses, plant a permaculture garden and install a solar system for green electricity.
Our goal is for the children’s home to become self-financing and self-developing in the long term. To make this possible, we are helping to build the infrastructure and train the staff so that they can manage the children’s home sustainably in the future, independently of aid payments.
All persons involved in Pamoja Africa e. V. work on a voluntary basis. The running costs of the association are completely covered by the membership fees. Thus, all donations arrive 100% where they are needed.

We want to build an agroforest demonstration farm in Maua Villa in 2024. With the demonstration farm, we will create access to vital resources and create a place of learning for our children and the villagers. We are also laying the foundations for dialogue with other permaculture projects. Together with the Food Forest Network - Sarasale e.V. and Hungry Cities Permaculture, we are developing a concept on how we can contribute to education for sustainable development in Kenya. To this end, we will also apply for funding from foundations to finance the costs of running a certified permaculture design course and a networking exchange for the permaculture scene in Kenya.
