Christmas donation for Aid Kenya

Christmas donation for Aid Kenya Commitment to deaf children

Instead of Christmas presents for customers and suppliers, Donges Group supports Aid Kenya Watoto e.V., a non-profit association which works with deaf children in Kenya.

Aid Kenya was founded in August 2014 and has done valuable work in Kenya since then. A school with two classrooms, a fully equipped kitchen that provides for regular meals, a dining room/community room, a chicken coop and a dormitory for children and teachers were built. Step by step Aid Kenya Watoto e.V. was able to finance and maintain more and more facilities, which now offer 50 deaf children a place to learn and live.

“We find this social commitment overwhelming and want to help where it is most needed,” explains Johannes Laumann, CEO of Donges Group. “The work of Aid Kenya Watoto e.V. supports the poorest of the poor and without the voluntary commitment of the founders, these children would have no chance of a dignified life. As a father of a family and a believing Christian, it is important to me to look there and to give these children a life that is worth living,” Laumann continued.

Further information on Aid Kenya Watoto e.V. can be found online at or on Instagram aidkenyawatoto.
