Every Contribution Counts
"If it itches an animal on its back, it scratches itself against a tree. If a person has an itch on his back, he asks someone to scratch it for him."
This African proverb tells us that everyone depends on his/her fellow human beings, especially when simple everyday tasks demand inhuman effort. Through various activities in churches and schools and sociocultural events the Verein Amokwe Nigeria draws attention to the fate of people with a special physical need for support and their families in Nigeria. To this end, donations in money and in kind are sought for the education and training of these underprivileged children and young people in Amokwe and the surrounding region.
In addition to money donated, which is invested entirely in the Project, we gratefully accept school materials and other helpful donations for young people with a special physical need for support. Every donation, every volunteer effort - modest or otherwise, helps to give these young people with a special physical need for support a renewed, positive hope for the future.
