Asante - Education for Children in Kenia

Asante Verein Austria works to raise funds to support Kenyan schools with educational materials. Asante (formerly Magodo Children's Home Foundation) based in Angern an der March, Austria, was founded by Rael Shete and Martha Auer in 2012.

Our objective is to fundraise to provide school materials for needy children. We work with schools in Kenya in vulnerable communities to assess these needs and procure these supplies where appropriate. 

We aim at making a measurable and tangible difference to the lives of the children by facilitating their access to education. Due to lack of available State assistance and financial funds, many schools as well as parents struggle to afford education materials. 

 Access to appropriate educational supplies is essential to the fulfilment of children’s right to education. Unfortunately, in Kenya, not all children have access to these supplies due to problems like poverty or early death of parents/guardians. Additionally, it is evident that when families have to buy educational materials by themselves, the less likely it is for children to attend school.

Our financial management

Most of the administration costs of Asante are covered by our donation. We strive to keep the administration costs as low as possible.

An annual report will state the progress of work done, achievements and investment of donations.
