Great news! Thanks to a donorparent we got in contact with the Umdasch
Foundation in Austria. We asked them to help us to finance the
educational programmes and this is their answer: "We
are delighted to announce Umdasch Foundation decided to support Fahari
Foundation with funds for educational programmes for our children. The
Umdasch Foundation is an initiative of Hilde Umdasch and Alfred Umdasch
with the goal of linking together the fields of education, economy and
ethics. The Fahari Foundation project was selected because of the joint
objectives providing better future via education and self-reliance."

be re-build. It looks good again!
19-11-2016: In 2017 it is planned

milestone in the
history of the Fahari Foundation and a major achievement if you
recognize that without the Foundation these children
would most likely not enjoy education at all! The additional annual
costs for high school education compared to ground
school education is € 600,00 per child. Up to this moment we still need €
5.500,00 from the neccessary € 8.400,00 to pay for their education. It

Today was the big day! The Gala of the ChildRight Fund. At a top
location (Kurhaus in Scheveningen) a perfectly organized gala was held
for the benefit of various charities supported by the ChildRight Fund.
The Fahari Foundation is one of the charities supported by ChildRight
and 20 persons of Fahari were present at this gala. Several speeches
were held (including a video message from Princess Laurentien), there
was an auction of art including paintings by Marian Jacobs and Ans
Markus. Besides an excellent dinner there were also performances by
Liptease, Jared Grant and Brandon. The objective of this gala was to
raise money for a number of charities supported by ChildRight. We are
therefore very pleased that we will receive an amount of € 15.800,00
from ChildRight! On behalf of the children in the project; ASANTE SANA!
The school year in Kenya has started for some of "our" children.
Shukrani is one of these children and he is ready for his new school. He
is in the 2nd grade of the secondary school. The children attending the
first year of secondary school have to wait another month and the
children who attend primary school have already gone back to school.
The Fahari Foundation Centre, where all 50 children in the project are
living, must also be maintained well and therefore it is being repaint.
The construction of the additional wing to the Swiss Cottage Hospital
(partner of the Fahari Foundation, which provides medical care for the
children in the project) is nearing its completion. In this wing (partly
funded by the Fahari Foundation and Wilde Ganzen) is a mother / child
department. In this department the hospital fights the unnecessary
deaths of mothers and their (un) born child.
We are looking for additional donor parents for 15 children in the
project. Donor parent usually means that you pay € 50.00 per month to
the Foundation. Because these children already have a donor parent of €
25.00 per month it means you transfer € 25.00 per month to the account
of the Fahari Foundation and with that money you contribute to the daily
care (food, drink, clothing, medical care etc.) of the children. You
and the other donor parent will be linked to one of the children.
Together we ensure that the children become self-reliant! Are you
interested? Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or by
phone at 0621543260. We gladly answer your questions and discuss the
01-01-2016: We would like to wish
