True change occurs in the next generation, the ones that are now growing up….

It was very important for us to start from there. In 2011 we started supporting the many children at the Nariva Academy by providing English-language teaching. These children were selected from the poorest families by the village chiefs. In the meantime, and thanks to sponsorship, we have been able to provide this top-quality teaching to more than 50 children. The demand for more English-language teaching grew so much that we started to build more schools: the “Worseg Vision” from Dr. Artur Worseg in Momella, the “Maasai Vision” in Ngabobo and the “Simba Vision” in Madebe, both overseen by the Berggold family. That means we now have one school on Meru land and two schools in the most remote parts of the Maasai land.

Thanks to the Secondary School Sponsorships, older children, and particularly girls in the Maasai Land, are able to receive an additional four years of education if they have finished primary school with good grades. However, girls in Maasai families, even those with very good grades, are often denied a higher education so they can get married at a young age. It is precisely these girls whom we aim to help.

The Hill-Foundation has also sponsored a computer school in Momella with free courses for children and adults.

The chartered engineer Josef Doppler has built a vocational training school in Ngare Nanuki, where apprentices from poor families receive training to become carpenters, masons or mechanics. After completing a two year course, the successful students receive their Veta graduation certificates. All our students to date have gone on to find jobs after graduating.

The tailoring workshop for women in Momella started in 2011 with the help of Mrs Reinhild Wendl.  Starting with a basic training in fashion and then over a three year period, covering the more complex subtleties of tailoring, our successful students not only graduate with their Veta graduation certificates but also the ability to be financially independent.  Thanks to the support of volunteers and with the help of real –life assignments from Africa Amini Alama, this was also the first of our projects to be self-sufficient.

Our latest project is the Plasonig  garage offering mechanical repairs and assembly.  Here young people have an opportunity to train as an apprentice mechanic.  Another excellent project set up in the one of the most remote areas of Tanzania!
