"Together we want to create self-determined living and learning spaces in Maua Villa as well as for more and more people in Kenya. Characterized by partnership-based cooperation and the exchange of knowledge between all those involved, Pamoja Africa is the offspring for long-term social and ecological development."
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.

Our children's home Maua Villa
Since 2014 we have been building the children's home Maua Villa thanks to our sponsors and supporters. It is located in the rural village of Kivingoni (Machakos County, Kenya). Most families here live on less than 2€ a day. This makes feeding the children and financing school fees almost impossible.
In Maua Villa we give needy children from difficult family backgrounds a loving home. "Maua" is Swahili and means "flourishing". Our goal is to prepare the children for a self-determined life and to give them a hopeful perspective for the future. We want them to grow up into responsible personalities and to become people who have an interest in leaving the world a little better than they found it.
Since 2018, we have been running a permaculture garden around Maua Villa, which is the centerpiece to ensure the self-sufficiency of our children's home. We share the knowledge we have gathered with the surrounding villages so that more and more people can benefit from our experience.
