More information


TOOLS FOR LIFE organised a CleanUp Day in cooperation with the kindergarten in Eppenhain. There were 40 kindergarten children with their teachers and a Ukrainian refugee family who supported us. A playground, an old sports field and several paths at the edge of the forest were cleared of rubbish by the children.

Last weekend, the foundation stone was laid for the new secondary school in Mbafaye, Senegal. Representatives of the village, the municipality, the school authority, teachers and students, the headmaster and the parents' council were on site.

In the first construction phase, two new classrooms, sanitary facilities and an administration building will be built.

A speech written by TOOLS FOR LIFE was read out and afterwards there was a celebration for the happy occasion.


TOOLS FOR LIFE is planning an aid convoy to Poland next week. The intention is to take aid supplies with us and in turn take refugees from the crisis areas with us to Germany.

Voices of our supporters

Your commitment - Uganda 2017

The project work with TOOLS FOR LIFE has given me the opportunity to help others to help themselves and to noticeably improve their quality of life. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!

Mara Weber

Your commitment - Senegal 2012

My TOOLS FOR LIFE staff trip to Senegal in 2012 was a unique experience. And the fact that I was standing on a meadow where today, after only two years, there is a school for several hundred pupils, which the Foundation helped to finance, is almost unbelievable. Great cause and great projects that make a little bit of a difference in the world.
