Nyota e.V. - für Kinder in Afrika

managed by Alexander K. (Communication)

About us

The association “Nyota e.V.” from Mannheim, Germany, was founded in 2003 and has provided more than 200 school sponsorships for orphans from the region around Lwala in Western Kenya since its foundation. The traumatised orphans are taught within the association’s own day care center (kita) and receive a first academic preparation for primary school. Professional and experienced caretakers and teachers create a lovely environment of learning and playing games. The project work aims at providing a sustainable contribution within the development cooperation in Western Kenya. However, it is of particular importance to Nyota that the help that is provided contributes to the idea of “help for self-help”. Nyota considers education as a fundamental and important aspect that enables children and the community to leave the vicious circle of poverty. Therefore, the Nyota-team aims at accepting as many children to its day care center as its capacity allows. Through the work at the day care center and the subsequent submission to primary and sponsored secondary school the organization tries to achieve these goals.

The recently started Organic Green Garden Project will help Nyota to assure the permanent supply with the most important food for the children at the center (kita). The foundation of the association Nyota in 2003 was the result of a primarily private project of the deceased founder Bärbel Kirschenlohr. She supported orphans in Kenya on a private base by providing school fees, food and medicine long time before the foundation of Nyota. Nyota is a Kiswahili word meaning star, a star as a symbol for hope. „Nyota e.V. – for children in Africa“ is a registered association in Germany and recognized as a charitable body. Nyota provides all sponsors with a receipt of their donation which may be subject to tax allowances in your country. All donations are strictly forwarded to our project in Kenya as our team members in Germany work all free of charge.

Nyota Green Garden 2018 - Ein guter Start ins neue Jahr

  R. Dech  24 February 2018 at 06:31 PM

Liebe Freunde und Unterstützer,

das Jahr 2018 ist nun schon einige Wochen alt und im Nyota Green Garden hat sich schon einiges getan.

Eine wichtige und besonders erfreuliche Neuigkeit war die Nachricht über die Anschaffung und erfolgreiche Installation unserer neuen leistungsstarken Brunnenpumpe, welche es uns ermöglicht auch 
in trockenen Zeiten die Beete des Nyota Green Garden mit Wasser aus unserem neu gebauten Reservoir zu versorgen. In den ersten Wochen dieses Jahres konnten daher auch schon etliche Gemüsesorten wie Zuchini oder Tomaten angepflanzt werden.

Neben der Mais - und Hirseernte freuen wir uns auch über die prächtigen Papayas und Mangos.

Eines unserer Ziele für das Jahr 2018 ist es auch die Anzahl der Organic Farming Workshops noch weiter auszubauen, um mehr Kleinbauern aus der Region zu erreichen. Dabei werden wir von unseren beiden ehemaligen Kita Kids und heutigen Mitarbeitern John und Biko tatkräftig unterstützt.

Ein weiteres Erfolgskonzept der letzten Jahre war die Anreicherung der täglichen Mahlzeiten mit den nährstoffreichen Blättern des Moringa Baums. Diese Zutat darf auch dieses Jahr bei unseren Mitarbeitern in der Küche nicht fehlen, daher möchten wir weitere Moringa Bäume pflanzen.

Wir freuen uns über den guten Start in das Jahr 2018 und bitten weiterhin um Ihre Unterstützung beim Ausbau dieses wichtigen Projekts.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe
