Help poor African children to get more education

By | Projects

Millions of children worldwide have no access to vital resources such as food, clothing, education and shelter. Education is one of the best ways to help disadvantaged children have a better future. Every child has the right to education, but unfortunately many of them are trapped in the circle of poverty without education that can turn their lives into success.

According to UNICEF, an estimated 264 million children worldwide receive no education due to war, famine, child marriage, child labour and other forms of violence, deprivation and abuse. Every child deserves an education so that they can have a better future.

In the Sahel region, where DAKIE International e.V. is active, the challenge is particularly great. Together with our local partners, we build and maintain schools, especially in rural areas where education is particularly poor. So, more children can learn to read and write. That changes their lives and they have the chance to leave the cycle of poverty.

Please help us to enable education!
Every donation helps to change a life from the beginning.

Pilot project in Gambia

By | News

Gambia is a republic in West Africa which, apart from a short coastal section on the Atlantic Ocean, is surrounded by the state of Senegal. With an area of ​​approximately 11,000 km² and 2 million inhabitants, Gambia is the smallest country in Africa.

In Gambia, there are no significant mineral resources. About 75% of the population is dependent on the cultivation of crops and the keeping of livestock for their livelihoods. There are also some smaller plants for processing animal skin, peanuts and fish.

Economic progress depends to a large extent on foreign aid and advice from the International Monetary Fund on responsible government work.

DAKIE INTERNATIONAL E.V. WOULD LIKE TO BUILD A FARM AS A PILOT PROJECT IN GAMBIA. THERE, DIFFERENT TYPES OF VEGETABLES AND FIELD CROPS ARE TO BE CULTIVATED FOR FOOD SUPPLY. THIS CREATES JOBS FOR PEOPLE ON THE GROUND, WHICH GIVE THEM A LIVELIHOOD.

An innovative feature of the pilot project is that the farm itself will generate and store energy via a photovoltaic system. The energy generated should be used to operate a deep-water pump, which supplies the fields with irrigation, but also the people with clean drinking water.

The locals living conditions are greatly improved with the farm through clean drinking water, income, healthy food and electricity. At the same time, ecological and resource-conserving methods of food production are promoted and made locally known.

DAKIE International e.V. promotes a concrete contribution against poverty in the rural population in Gambia.

A total of €195,250 is required for the purchase and installation of the components on the farm.

Please help us to provide concrete, practical help! Make the difference for a village!

Solar power and water wells for hospitals in Nigeria

By | News

Nigeria is a Country in West Africa, bordering the Atlantic and the countries of Benin, Niger, Chad and Cameroon. With over 190 million inhabitants, it is by far the most populous country in Africa. Unfortunately, there are often violent ethnic conflicts between the Muslim North and the Christian majority south.

Despite high revenues from the raw materials industry and stable economic growth rates from six to seven percent, Nigeria is only ranked 152 out of 188 countries in the human development index (HDI 2015). The oil wealth of the country benefits only a small elite: favoritism, corruption and distribution conflicts are part of everyday life. About two-thirds of people live in extreme poverty. The average life expectancy is one of the lowest in the world, it is only 52 years.

ABOUT TWO-THIRDS OF PEOPLE LIVE IN EXTREME POVERTY. THE AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY IS ONE OF THE LOWEST IN THE WORLD, IT IS ONLY 52 YEARS.

The nutritional and health situation of many people is dramatically poor from birth: According to the World Bank, an average of 124 out of 1,000 children die before they reach five years of age. About 35% of the population has no access to clean drinking water. More than 70% of people do not have reasonable sanitation facilities. Only half of the population, especially in cities, is connected to the electricity grid. The power supply fluctuates strongly, due to the unreliability of the power stations and the frequently interrupted supply of primary energy. Electricity shortages are the order of the day, and many households are therefore often forced to use their own diesel generating units, which increases energy costs.

In Nigeria, there is usually no public water supply network, as is customary in industrialized countries.

DAKIE International e.V. is committed to the construction of solar systems as well as solar powered pumps for the electricity and water supply of hospitals to save lives in Nigeria.

Solar pumps

By | Projects

Water is next to air the most important resource that a person needs to survive. According to the United Nations, about 800 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. In the Sub-Sahara Africa, in the Sahel zone, even more than 45% of the population lack access to clean drinking water.

The extreme drought of the past decades has exacerbated the problem: surface waters are often evaporated and humans, animals and agriculture compete for the remaining scarce resources. Millions of women and children spend several hours every day collecting water. On the often-troublesome paths many has become victims of sexual violence.

The poor quality of the dirty water, often collected in ponds, causes serious transmissible diseases, e.g. Diarrhea, dysentery, typhus, and cholera. More than 400 million schooldays are missed every year by diseases related to unclean drinking water.

IN REMOTE AREAS WITHOUT ACCESS TO MODERN MEDICINE, DISEASES CAN BE FATAL. ABOUT 3.4 MILLION PEOPLE DIE EACH YEAR FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF UNCLEAN DRINKING WATER, ESPECIALLY CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS OF AGE.

Water is Life

Easy access to clean drinking water provides a new life: protection from illness, protection from violence and more education, since fewer illness-related missing days are created in the school.

DAKIE International e.V. contributes to the fight against the water crisis: Innovative solar water pumps help people access clean drinking water – even in the most remote areas.

The solar pumps have been designed to pump water from a depth of up to 100m without additional operating costs (solar energy), even on cloudy days. They are low-maintenance designed and can be easily installed on site with local skills.

PLEASE HELP US AND GET INVOLVED IN CLEAN DRINKING WATER!
MAKE THE DIFFERENCE – ALONE OR TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS FOR A VILLAGE.

Each donation helps with the purchase, transport and installation of the solar pumps. Every donation helps save lives and give hope.

Girls education challenge

By | Projects

Some 29 million girls aged between 6 and 15 do not go to school. Many of them will never enter a classroom because when a girl at the age of 10 has never attended a school, the probability is very high that she will never visit one. The few lucky ones who can go to school will receive a training for a maximum of six years.

In today’s world, extremists are particularly interested in destroying the life of these school girls, their families and their villages. In addition, there is the extreme poverty, which forces many girls to give up their schooling in the hope of a better life with work.

EDUCATION MEANS VERY MUCH:

WOMEN WITH EDUCATION ARE OFTEN HEALTHIER, HAVE FEWER CHILDREN, HAVE A BETTER INCOME AND HELP THEIR CHILDREN TO MORE HEALTH AND EDUCATION. ALL THIS CAN FREE INDIVIDUAL FAMILIES, BUT ALSO WHOLE VILLAGES FROM THE POVERTY.

In addition to social hurdles that hinder education, the learning conditions in the schools are not optimal: Often more than 50 children are in one class and three or more children share a textbook. In the Sahel zone, only 20% of schools have electricity and almost half have access to drinking water. Schools with no toilets or mixed toilets also represent a health and safety risk for girls.

DAKIE INTERNATIONAL E.V. WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT DISADVANTAGED GIRLS MORE EDUCATION.

Please help us defeat poverty with education!

Support less privileged children

By | Projects

DAKIE International e.V. support less-privileged children in the Sahel region in Africa. The aim is to improve the quality of life, especially for children who are abandoned, orphaned, destitute or otherwise disadvantaged in their way of life.

Our projects change the lives of children through food, shelter, clothing, health care and the provision of School materials and school uniforms. They can become responsible members of their respective communities and at best help themselves.

How we work:

1. Child protection

DAKIE ensures that children’s security policies and services are implemented, especially in their communities, schools and homes, where violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect of children are most common.

2. Nutrition

Millions of children in the Sahel region of Africa are on the brink of famine. DAKIE provides malnourished children and their families with healthy food aid to survive hunger. Food insecurity is estimated to affect 53 million people due to the region’s gradual food and nutrition crisis, including extreme vulnerability and poverty. According to UNICEF, this is about 20% of the population – at least 25 million people are extremely poor. Many families eat only one meal a day during the drought. The despair of those affected leads to migration, debt or exploitative work.

3. Education

Every child is entitled to inclusive and equal education. At DAKIE International we work to ensure that nobody is left behind. We sponsor children from less privileged families and invest in education, infrastructure and resources.

4. Emergency

DAKIE runs an emergency clinic with the help of our local partners to ensure survival despite disease, hunger and poverty. Even in the event of a disaster, our team is available to provide the young people and their families with all the services they need to save their lives. The causes of these endless emergencies in the Sahel are extreme poverty, inequality, limited access to basic services, armed conflict, environmental degradation, climate change and population growth. Most of these structural causes require determined joint efforts by national governments, development and humanitarian aid donors to truly reduce the impact of this recurrent crisis.

Please support our work. Your donations help to save the lives of these endangered children and to change their lives.
