The Friends

Each year 1.600 young people commit to a voluntary service and by the worldwide student campaign WOW-Day children get enabled to go to school. All our donations are forwarded at 100%. Furthermore, our emergency education program has been able to conduct urgently needed rehabilitation campaigns in many conflict areas.
