During the Advent season from the beginning of November 2023 until the end of the year, we have launched the "Donate a light in Butiiti" fundraising campaign together with ENGONZI FÖRDERVEREIN e.V. In most of the homes of our school sponsored children, there is usually no proper light after sunset. The families use paraffin lamps to provide a little light.
Many children in Butiiti already lack simple things at home, such as a proper bed. They have to sleep on the floor only on a sheet or there is a mattress lying on the mud floor. As a result, the children often sleep badly and get sick. As a result, they miss school or are not as concentrated because they are tired.
