Story

The Giraffe Project provides education for the very deprived children in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Our aim is for these children to break the poverty cycle and become established and productive citizens. We sponsor children in schools (from primary and secondary all the way to college and university) and run projects to create a better learning environment (e.g., by building classrooms, setting up labs and libraries and providing computer equipment).

For more information, see www.giraffeproject.org.

Every year, a team of volunteers participates in the 20 km of Brussels run, to collect much-needed donations and raise awareness among potential future sponsors.

In 2024, we are dedicating our effort to the memory of Jürgen Koenemann, our energetic, generous, and passionate friend and co-director who passed away on 25 March 2023.
