Jump Start aims to make a positive impact in small steps.
Jump Start e.V. supports long-term oriented projects of youth welfare, educational support, and team sports, primarily in Africa. Through its work, Jump Start encourages and supports children and young people in their dreams and offers them better prospects for the future. The young people in Taveta gain team spirit and learn self-discipline through the youth work projects. The organisations also offers funding programs for higher education that will provide increased opportunities in the job market for young people later in life. Jump Start maintains a close relationship with its partners and the people who implement the projects on-site. For this organization to continue, the projects depend on the continued support of project partners and donations as well as the voluntary members of the association work on a voluntary basis and do not receive any fees.
Why It Matters
‘My colleague Stefan introduced me to the charity. It’s impressed me how they manage to help the people in need. All funds collected are being spent on the projects, there is no overhead. Therefore, I want to join the case and use this great LEWIS initiative to give something back. Much has been achieved already and it would be wonderful if more children are able to attend school, to learn, to choose a career path as they wish, to see a doctor if they need one. Giving small amounts can have a big impact.’ – Alexander Schultz, Senior Account Executive, Munich.
