Our Goal



Dear readers,

As a result of lockdowns due to the Corona pandemic, our partners often had to interrupt their work and find new ways of working last year. Children and young people also suffered increased poverty and often hunger as their parents became increasingly unemployed. It is becoming apparent that the Russian dictator's assault will now further increase the hardship of the people in the partners' countries by making basic foodstuffs more expensive or even eliminating them. The year 2021 was also a special year for us: The Association "Zukunft für Kinder in Slums e.V." (Future for Children in Slums), founded by all members of the Foundation‘s Council in December 2020, was recognised as a non-profit organisation in January 2021. The new Association was then able to continue and even expand the work of the Foundation of the same name in February. We now jointly support not only the Ayiera Initiative (Ai) in the Korogocho slum of Nairobi/Kernia and the Basketball Artists School (BAS) in the township of Katutura in Windhoek/Namibia. New partners are the Nepal Youth Programme (NYP) in Kathmandu/Nepal and a basketball wheelchair project of the Paralympic Committee of Rwanda. This means we are active in Asia again and also insSports for disabled people. These are not huge projects. But we continue to take to heart the sentence of the Chinese philosopher Confucius "It is better to light a little light than to curse the darkness." With "Sports for Development and Peace" we exclusively support partners who help children and young people to overcome their poverty by their own efforts through education and health promotion. On the homepage of the Asociation [www.zukunft-slum-kinder.de] we not only present the work of our partners, but also our concept. In addition to practising solidarity, it is particularly important to us to observe the Principle of Subsidiarity, i.e. "helping people to help themselves". Because "Aid measures should aim to offer the person in need as much opportunity as possible to participate in his liberation from need through his own actions; they should practise help for self-help". (Oswald von Nell-Breuning, SJ, 1890-1991) With this joint annual report of the Foundation and the Association, we again give an account of how and to what extent we were able to support the work of our partners in the past year. Above all, we would like to thank our donors who have made this possible and hope that the report will also attract the interest of new supporters.

Kind regards Heribert Scharrenbroich

THE AYIERA INITIATIVE Our Partner in the Korogocho Slum of Nairobi / Kenya Together with our Association "Zukunft für Kinder in Slums e.V." (Future for Children in Slums), our Foundation quickly and unbureaucratically supported the aid measures developed by the Ayiera Initiative (Ai) to mitigate corona damage. We were also able to win other supporters for this, especially the German Doctors and the Grammar School Alleestraße in Siegburg. As a nongovernmental organisation (NGO), we were once again able to respond more quickly with the private donations we received than others with their state-funded projects. Our support was mainly focused on - the major education and hygiene programme KSHP, which continued until the end of the year, - and the socio-psychological support that took place not only in Ai's education centre but also in the shacks of the slum dwellers. After the end of the strict lockdown, Ai additionally resumed the normal project programme with - the monthly medical check-ups by the German Doctors at the Youth and Education Centre, - school-based training at the Ai centre, - the promotion of school visits through scholarships and - life skills education through cultural and sports programmes, financed by a CARE/BMZ project. - Newly added since 2021 is a pilot project with university scholarships initiated and financed by us, as well as a "community clean-up programme".

The Handwashing and Hygiene Programme KSHP Behind this heading is the extensive hygiene and education programme KSHP (Korogocho Slum Hygiene Programme). At its heart were AI's education teams and the 1000-litre water tanks that were placed at 17 strategic locations often near schools. The launch was made possible by our donors, who spontaneously donated €15,000 in May 2020 in response to our appeal for help. By the end of 2021, we had raised another €13,000 for this programme. Soap and fresh water were delivered daily by tanker trucks. Every slum dweller, young or old, could wash their hands here, but at the same time an Ayiera team informed them about the importance of hygiene as a protection against diseases and especially against Corona infection. Posters and flyers provided lasting education. Since most informal schools in the Korogocho slum do not have an adequate water supply, hand-washing stations near such schools were particularly welcome. Commenting on the programme, which started in mid-May 2020 and ran until December 2021, Ayiera writes: "Daily statistics collected by the individual youth groups in charge of the stations indicate that KSHP served an average of 20,000 Korogocho slum residents daily. Our analysis shows that this programme reached over 120,000 slum dwellers who were the main target group." 4

The Counselling programme For many years, the foundation has financed two social workers with basic psychological training to help children traumatised by the misery in the slum. Their proven help has now encountered additional challenges in the Corona pandemic. The Ayiera Initiative writes to us about this in its annual report: "Given the desperate and harsh living conditions in the Korogocho slum, there has always been a great need for counselling services for the slum dwellers of Korogocho. The Covid 19 pandemic has further intensified this need. In this era of coronavirus, many families, children and adults have been traumatised by the negative effects of the disease. Due to the closures, loss of jobs and restricted movement, life has become extremely difficult for many slum families. Against this backdrop, AI initiated home-based counselling support through its counsellors for parents/guardians and participants who have been placed in a difficult situation due to the Corona virus pandemic. These individuals were identified during home visits by AI staff to assess the impact of Covid-19 on our participants and their families. A total of 420 families were identified for counselling, 110 required ongoing counselling sessions and frequent follow-ups. About 8 were on the verge of committing suicide when they were approached by us. Given the urgent need for counselling for the residents of Korogocho slum, the two helpers were busy visiting the homes of the identified families to offer guidance, counselling and emotional support. After AI received permission from the authorities to resume its activities at the centre, 56 group counselling sessions were conducted for children and 18 adolescents were offered individual counselling, taking into account their situation. The group sessions were held on weekends." We owe a special help to the German Doctors: They made it possible for the Ayiera Initiative to hand out food packages to 900 households in the youth and education centre during the Corona pandemic. In some cases, AI also took the food parcels to the huts of particularly frail people.

Monthly medical check-ups On the last Saturday of every month, doctors and other staff from the German Doctors Nairobi (GDN) health centre arrived from the neighbouring Matare slum and transformed the hall of AI's education centre into a large medical examination room. All slum dwellers were thus offered the opportunity to have regular medical check-ups and to receive free, reliable medical help on a regular basis in order to prevent chronic diseases as early as possible. This was made possible above all by the partnership of the Alleestraße secondary school in Siegburg with its donation of 10,000 € from the "Day for Africa" and by the headquarters of the German Doctors in Bonn. The costs of the examinations, the medication administered and, in urgent cases, the follow-up treatment in the GDN health centre in Matare, the "Baraka Health Centre", were shared. We covered the logistic costs and especially the employment of a Community Health Worker (CHW). His 5

task is to carry out home visits, identify bedridden or extremely ill people in the Korogocho slum, educate, train people to take advantage of the preventive health check-up as well as to pay attention to the implementation of the examination results and the correct intake of the prescribed medication. Ayiera tells us: "In the twelve medical camps, AI reached a total of 3901 people, including children and adults from the Korogocho slum and surrounding areas. Many people have been diagnosed with respiratory diseases and recurring eye problems caused by the dangerous chemicals burnt at the dumpsite, which doctors say can lead to permanent blindness if not treated in time."

Education funding After the end of the strict lockdown imposed by the Kenyan government and the reopening of schools, we have not resumed our scholarship programme for primary and secondary school students, which we have been funding since 2013. This is because "Aktion Deutschland Hilft" and CARE Germany were able to win over the Herbert Nasch Foundation to fund such a programme with over 300 scholarships. We used part of our funds thus freed up to finance 4 university scholarships. AI was happy to start this pilot project with us to enable previously funded secondary school students with good school results to pursue an academic career. After the first year of the pilot project, AI states, "Since the launch of this programme, many needy young people have come forward to apply for university scholarships. This may indicate that in the Korogocho slum, many young people are qualified and willing to pursue their studies, but cannot afford the means to start or continue a university education, so they eventually abandon their education altogether or drop out. AI is very optimistic that with these scholarships, these young people will be leading catalysts for promoting social change and development in the slums."

The community clean-up programme AI conducted five clean-up campaigns in different parts of the slum. 360 young people participated in these clean-up campaigns. Many young people thus showed great interest in these actions, which took place every month since the beginning of the project. The educational goal was to encourage young people from Korogocho slum to continuously serve their community by improving the hygienic conditions in the slum. The main target group is young people who had benefited from AI programmes and activities over the years. We enabled AI to provide working materials such as wheelbarrows, shovels and brooms for this activity.

A proven partnership All of AI's activities aim to empower individuals and the community in ways that improve their lives. The promotion of education and of health are the main goals of their "Sport for Social Development" programme. This is in line with the guiding principle of our foundation and our association: "Education and health are the most important prerequisites for people to overcome their poverty themselves. Sport for development and peace creates motivation and enthusiasm for this." 6

From ghetto to university How Paul managed to continue his studies in Nairobi Paul Ombima is one of the four recipients of our university scholarships. He was on the verge of dropping out of his studies. The tuition fees were too high for him and his family, and his mother desperately needed help to support the family. This had become his priority. He is the eldest of four siblings living without a father. The Ayiera Initiative finally selected him as one of four for the university scholarship programme. Paul Ombima was born and raised in the Korogocho slum. The family lives in a single room. His mother works very hard. He attended primary school at the Jirani Education Centre, located right next to an open rubbish dump. The Ayiera Initiative already helped him here by cushioning the costs of primary school. This was followed by secondary school: he completed both levels with very good grades - a decisive prerequisite for admission to university. It wouldn't have worked without the Ayiera initiative "Now, thanks to this support, I am at the main campus of Egerton University in Njoro," says Paul. "I'm happy that the Ayiera Initiative pays for my daily university expenses, as well as food and rent." Without this help, he says, "it just wouldn't have been possible". In the meantime, he has arrived at the final year of his studies. Paul is not only grateful. He is also justifiably proud of himself. After all, his acceptance to the university worked out because he was able to present a very good overall score and good performance in the exams. The challenges, however, don't stop there. "Sometimes I struggle with my mother to raise my little brothers and sisters." This is how Paul describes his duties as the eldest son without a father. "Especially in 2020, things didn't go well because of the Corona pandemic, because I had nowhere to work." But eventually they did make it as a family. Paul is strong, hardworking and - last but not least - a keen footballer. The Ayiera initiative also gives him the opportunity to do this. And: He is very active in the so-called "Comunity Clean Up" programme. In this way, he says, "I can at least give back a little bit of what the Ayiera Initiative does for me". The Corona pandemic dramatically affected the lives of slum dwellers in Kenya last year. Our partner in the Korogocho slum of Nairobi, the Ayiera Initiative (Ai), had to find new ways. On its homepage, the Initiative writes in retrospect: "The pandemic had posed great challenges to the impoverished slum dwellers: They lost their meagre livelihoods. The abrupt closure of schools let to depression among children and the STAY-AT-HOME instruction increased domestic violence, especially among women and children. We had to intervene as the pandemic threatened to undo the positive impact of our project to empower destitute children and improve the lives of underprivileged slum dwellers in the slum. With the help of partners and supporters, we were able to make an important contribution to the fight against the Corona virus pandemic in the slum by developing effective strategies to raise awareness and prevent the transmission of the virus among the slum dwellers. We are proud to have supported the slum in averting a potential crisis by developing interventions that played a critical role in reducing the rate of infections. We also have alleviated the burden on slum dwellers during the most difficult times“ 7

Hand washing COVID-19 in the slum, the German Doctors and four scholarships The launch was made possible by our donors, who spontaneously donated €15,000 in May 2020 in response to our appeal for help. By the end of 2021, we had raised another €13,000 for this programme. Soap and fresh water were delivered daily by tanker trucks. Every slum dweller, young or old, could wash their hands here, but at the same time an Ayiera team informed them about the importance of hygiene as a protection against diseases and especially against Corona infection. Posters and flyers provided lasting education. Since most informal schools in the Korogocho slum do not have an adequate water supply, hand-washing stations near such schools were particularly welcome.

Commenting on the programme, which started in mid-May 2020 and ran unti December 2021, Ayiera Initiative writes: “From the daily statistics collected by the individual youth groups in charge of the stations, KSHP has been serving an average of 20,000 Korogocho slum residents on a daily basis. Our analysis shows that this program has reached over 120,000 slum residents who were the main target group.”


Ayiera Food Distribution No one is forgotten here Also this elderly woman and her grandchild are not forgotten by the people of the Ayiera Initiative. They also get some of the food and household goods, even though they don't play basketball or football. And most probably they were not involved in the cleaning action. But it is obvious that they have enough to do to keep their hut from falling down and to fight against all the other difficulties that determine their lives on a daily basis.


THE BASKETBALL ARTISTS SCHOOL (BAS) Our Partner in Windhoek / Namibia Since 2019, we have been supporting the Namibian non-governmental organisation (NGO) "Basketball Artists School Foundation (BAS)" in the township Katutura of Windhoek. Its primary goal is the development of the personality ("life skills education") of children and young people. The foundation for this is laid above all in the afternoon promotion of school and vocational training. A very qualified basketball training after the remedial lessons motivates to participate and promotes the sense of community. The goals of the BAS Foundation are: - To support children and young people in their schooling and general education, - To promote a healthy lifestyle through the acquisition of life skills and - To develop a healthy attitude towards life through sporting activities with a focus on basketball. BAS is a safe haven in the township for 50 children and adolescents aged 10 to 20. Half of them are male and half female, and they are selected according to certain criteria in a long-term process. All go to school, from primary to secondary. In addition, there are about 10 alumni aged 20-24 who support the programme. Extensive selection process First, all of the approximately 300 fifth graders from the 5 partner schools in the township are invited to take part in an almost three-month trial training. This includes simple basketball training, placement tests in maths and English and fun games. Of the 300 children, 15 boys and 15 girls aged between 9 and 12 are finally accepted. The director of BAS, Ramah Mumba, told us the following criteria for the selection: 1. Commitment and attendance,(this is the determining factor for all kids) 2. Communication (if a child excuses themselves from a day they missed) 3. Athletic skills or interest in sports 4. Background of the kid 5. Age 6. School grades 7. Willing to learn „Even if a kid is not good in school or basketball, if the kid is committed in the sense of they never missed a day within the 3 months of the trials, that kid will be the first to be picked, so attendance is key for the selection, we believe that if a kid can be committed in the trial sessions, then they will be committed in the BAS program.“ 10

Stresses due to Covid-19 Due to Covid-19, schools in Namibia also had to be closed for several months, making it difficult for BAS to run its daily programme as usual. During the lockdown, many children stayed at BAS around the clock. BAS became the "BAS Hostel". In its own words, BAS "used the COVID-19 crisis as a special opportunity for the children to develop their resilience, self-confidence and personal skills. Instead of regressing during the lockdown, the children flourished and made great strides forward. This was possible because of a tight schedule for each participating child that included tutoring, life skills, self-reflection and much more." (Jacobina Uushona in the Namibia Economist)

Director Ramah Mumba writes in his 2021 annual report to us: „We still manage to provide for those who were around and then later for everyone when they came back. A positive thing was that no matter what happened in 2021, we managed to still do what we were supposed to even though it was done a bit different, so we ended up achieving all our goals for the year, the funds were so helpful and necessary for our continuation of the program.“ Nutrition programme BAS has a nutrition programme that provides meals every day. This programme has been in place since 2010 and is one of the most important building blocks in BAS' concept. Indeed, the importance of the nutrition programme cannot be underestimated. To be adequately and above all healthily nourished remains a dream for many children in the township. However, it is not easy for BAS to finance the purchase of food for the children and young people. This is because many donor organisations provide funds quickly in the case of famine, but otherwise prefer to use them for "hardware" that lasts longer and that can also be visited. That is their understanding of sustainabilty. In our opinion, however, healthy nutrition and above all the prevention of hunger, especially for children, is also "very sustainable". It is well known what neurological damage malnutrition causes in children. 17-year-old René Shamba writes to us: "I also appreciate food because most of us don't eat one proper meal a day at home." Since financing the purchase of food is not easy for BAS, our Foundation/Association has been providing the BAS Foundation 6,000.- EURO annually for this purpose since 2019. Director Mumba 11

writes in his annual report to us: „The challenges we had in 2021 with the feeding program was the increase of prices of food due to inflation and the economy not doing well, this caused the number of months for the money of food to decrease.“ "Education first - Sports second" The work of Ramah Mumba's team, as we could observe on the ground, makes us certain that we are doing the right thing by continuing our commitment to BAS. Because BAS consistently follows its founding motto "Education first - Sports second". And this is perfectly in line with our concept "Sports for Social Development and Peace": The attraction of sport is used to promote education and health, the most important prerequisites for overcoming poverty.

How two young people see their (BAS) lives At first glance, the Basketball Artists School (BAS) is a basketball club. But that would be too short-sighted. BAS uses sports for the personal and social development of young people.

"A feeling of family" René is enthusiastic about BAS: "Without saying too many words, I can say that BAS is my home. BAS is like a nirvana for me, making me happy every day and giving me a sense of peace." Like everyone else, René gets a meal every day. René Shamba is 17. And something else is "essential" for him, as he says: "We have basketball training and exercises every day. But of course I also appreciate the food, because most of us don't get a proper meal at home." René doesn't only enjoy playing basketball. "We have classes every day, and the stationery that has been donated to us over the years is a big help."

"There is no one to judge me" For Theresia Vaino, BAS means family. There, the 15-year-old "feels so free, loved and accepted. I can express myself and I am always myself," she says. In this family, "there is no one to judge me." This experience, she says, is the best gift she has received from God. For her, "BAS is a life saver." Theresia raves about the "best cook, Aunt Caroline, who makes sure we all eat." When they come home from school, the food is ready. Regular meals are an important constant for the young people. That's why Theresia emphasises this: "I've never experienced a day when we didn't eat." Materials for reading and writing are also provided. BAS provides the young people with paper, pens, glue, scissors, erasers, etc. And even tablets, the purchase of which was made possible by the "Foundation Future for Children in Slums" in the last two years. Theresia goes into raptures: "There is nothing that BAS does not provide us with. And the best part is that we get it for free. Whenever we need to do homework or have projects, BAS is always a helping hand." 12

The NEPAL YOUTH PROGRAMME (NYP) Our Partner in Katmandu / Nepal Since March 2021, we are again active in Asia by supporting the "Nepal Youth Programme"(NYP) in Kathmandu. This organisation was founded in 2015 by Rajiv Nepali (who is still the head of NYP today) and by Holger Obermann, a German football legend. During his years in Nepal, Mr Obermann – as the DFB's "sports development expert" – encouraged the founding of NYP and accompanied its development until his death in October last year. In 2017, NYP was recognised by the state as a nongovernmental organisation. In 2018, Obermann was able to inspire young football coaches from Merzhausen near Freiburg (Germany) to found the partnership association "JAY Nepal Youth Programme e.V.". They travelled to Nepal and helped to further develop the working structure of NYP with new curriculas (see: www.jaynyp.de). NYP sees itself primarily as a football academy for children and young people. From the very beginning, NYP has placed emphasis on teaching social skills such as discipline, fair play, teamwork, responsibility for society and school education in addition to the football training for children and young people. Our Association supports NYP's work in the school education sector, especially in the development and production of teaching and learning materials that serve to incorporate sports into primary school lessons. The foundation of parent discussion groups is also part of the programme. In addition, costs for the programme coordinator, trainers and instructors are covered. (see: zukunft-slum-kinder.de/?portfolio=nepal). Difficult new start after lockdown As with our other partners, NYP's work was interrupted last year by a national lockdown due to the Corona pandemic. In his annual report, Director Rajiv Nepali describes how NYP finally tried to cope with the effects of the pandemic after a long interruption with the help of "Sports for Social Development" as follows: “In most of the underdeveloped countries, sports are taken just as an entertainment for the living. Many of us are still unaware about the influence of sport that can bring positive changes in individuals and in the society. Sport itself is an education and through this many of social development acts can be realized. NYP, as a recognized organization, to dedicate for the development of the society / community, devoting the time and effort on children and youth to enhance their skill and educate in life related pattern so to make them able to be the part of social development and to support for the creation of better and meaningful social living. The project, sports for social development, is designed to empower the youth and children through sports (specially football) and educational activities in a long-term vision.“ 13

Taking care of each other generates positive solutions. The project "Sports for Social Development" was supposed to be implemented with financial support from "Zukunft für Kinder in Slums e.V." (ZKV) from March 2021, but could not start as planned due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rajiv Nepali wrote to us: „Following the rules and regulation that Nepal government announced for the prevention from COVID 19, the program activities could start only from September 2021. It was for NYP not easy to reorganize the groups of youth, children and the parents for their involvement in NYP programs. Besides, the bad weather during this time too had a negative influence on conducting rescheduled programs as most of the NYP youth, children and parents were unavailable due to the flue and common cold. It was very challenging for us to continue the NYP activities during the difficult time of this COVID pandemic. We had to take breaks, reorganize again and again and taking risk for the entire group was a very difficult moment. But we learnt that through taking care of each other, there is always a positive solution. - On 10th September we have conducted a two-hour orientation session concerned to the prevention and awareness of COVID 19 and from 12th of September, started regular Football training for seniors 2021, with average participation of 15 youth. And from December, we resumed football training for the juniors, but the participation was not as expected. In Average 10 juniors participated the training. - From 1st of November, weekly program Early Childhood Development resumed but with the very smaller number of attendances (around 10) - On 25th sept, 30th oct, 21st November we held Youth empowerment workshops on leadership and Non-Violent communication to the youth of NYP. 20 youth participated in each workshop. - In November, homepage of NYP designed and published. The site can be reached with the website address www.nyp.org.np . It was definitely difficult for all of us to cope with the difficult situation. All of us prioritized the health-related living circumstances as the COVID 19 infection rising again and again in phases. This has blocked all of us to go with the regular planning and schedules. With the patient and well care of each other we are maintaining our health so to be able to effort for the planned programs. For us, during this difficult time too being able to be together and develop kind cooperation was the main success. The major lesson during this period that we learnt is working together for each other secures the future success.“ 14

WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL Our Partner in Kigali / Rwanda From April to the end of 2021, young people in two school centres in the neighbourhood of the capital Kigali of the East African state of Rwanda were given the opportunity to learn and play the sport of wheelchair basketball as part of the project we are supporting. The school centres in the towns of Nyanza and Huye, where more than 1,000 children up to the age of 17 are taught, have many young people with disabilities, some of whom also live in the centres. Unlike children and young people without disabilities, there are very limited opportunities for this group to participate in sports. Children and young people could learn and play this sport, supported by sports teachers who have experience with the sport of wheelchair basketball as coaches. In addition, teachers in the school centres were trained to be able to continue the sporting activities even after the external funding came to an end. Our financial support was also used to purchase sports wheelchairs to supplement the stock of our partner, the Rwanda Paralympic Committee, so that several teams can play. When selecting the young people, care was taken to ensure that participants with different physical disabilities and also two young people with an intellectual disability could take part in the activities. Similar to wheelchair basketball in clubs and leagues, people with different degrees of disabilities should play together in the activities we promote in Rwanda. The idea is to give everyone the chance to participate according to their abilities and not to exclude anyone. The English terms ability and disability can be used to explain the concept very simply. From the feedback of some participants it is clear that they have received a lot of positive impulses for their life situation with disabilities through the experience with wheelchair basketball. The programme was accompanied last year by two journalists who reported on the activities in the media. This was done with the aim of contributing to the reduction of the "stigma of disability". The aim of our project with the "Paralmypic Committee of Rwanda" is to promote this in the public. In 2022, we will again support our partner to offer additional activities in the two school centres. 15

DONATIONS & SUPPORT We would greatly appreciate any recommendation of our work to your friends and family.

Donations instead of gifts. Please recommend the work of our charitable Association to your friends and acquaintances. There are many occasions - especially when it comes to gifts for special birthdays or when a form of attention is sought on the occasion of a funeral. If you would like advice on this beforehand, please feel free to call us on 0171 2802475.

Tax excursion on the subject of donations in Germany. Donations by private individuals can be claimed as a tax-reducing "general donation deduction" up to a maximum of 20 percent of the total amount of income. At the beginning of each year we send out the receipts for the previous year - on special request also immediately after receipt. In the following annual report (as in this one) we give an account of how we have supported the work of our partners with the donations received.

Every single Euro donated reaches the partners. Because: We do not pay salaries to German staff. We only do voluntary work. The small administrative costs that still arise (for example for printing and mailing the annual report) are paid by the board members.

Support through our foundation. If you would like to support our work in the long run ("in perpetuity") with the interest of a large sum, you can do so by paying into the endowment capital of the Foundation "Zukunft fuer Kinder in Slums“. If interest rates are expected to rise in the future, this support will become more interesting again than in last years. We will be happy to advise you on this and also on the "tax-free endowment" of inheritances. More information is available at https://slum-kinder.org/spenden.
