The Förderverein

Represents the social village of Manas in Germany and in Europe. He is committed to helping people in the German-speaking world and beyond to learn about and support the social village. At least once a year, members of the project support organization travel to Kyrgyzstan in order to be in direct contact with the project management, the staff and residents, and to discuss development and support needs. We support the establishment not only financially, but also help the employees with advice and action. If we can not answer questions ourselves, we are looking for experts who can advise us.

Our most important task is donation. On the one hand, to contribute to the running costs of the social village without which it could not exist, and on the other hand to promote projects and developments there. For this, we are always looking for cooperation with other organizations, such as the Swiss fund for development work “Acacia”.

Very important is the personal exchange. We want to see how the residents are treated, how they are cared for and how they have developed. We are looking at how the social village of Manas has developed and how the project funds have been used. At the same time, we learn about the needs, the needs and the necessities for new projects. In order to be able to support the projects, we are looking for donors * afterwards.

The members of the Association work voluntarily.
