Welcome to the Furaha Phönix Kinderhaus
On this first page of our homepage, we would like to briefly introduce our institution and explain the special features of our approach. The following pages cover topics about Africa in general, about Kenya and Uganda in particular, about orphans and street children, and of course about the Furaha-Phoenix Children's Home.
First, briefly the peculiarities of our way of working at one glance:
We are a children's home society for street and orphan children in Africa, founded and supported by private individuals.
All club members work exclusively unsalaried and with a lot of personal commitment.
The entire administration and administration is done on a unsalaried basis.
Therefore it is ensured that for each donated EUROfood can be bought for a full EURO in Africa.
Full transparency on our open "transparent accounting", where we list all revenues and all payments to Africa.
In the meantime, we can look back on many years of experience and we constantly give home to more than 50 orphans.
Incidentally, commercial controlling is repeatedly ensured on site by the "active friends of the children's home".
Our association - commitment to the future
We are a small private association for orphans, founded in 2005. In the first years of our work, we financially supported an existing children's home. Since the end of 2009, we have become independent as a sponsoring institution and built a children's home ourselves. Since then we offer (currently) more than 50 street and orphan children a very nice home in Kenya, near the famous city of Mombasa.
The children - exclusively boys - meet a family-like social environment, are provided with food and clothing and looked after by trained professionals. In addition, we are working together since a few years with a nearby children's home, in which only girls are looked after, friendly together.
Every donated Euro arrives!
We finance ourselves 100% through private donations and donations and claim to be extremely responsible with the funds entrusted to us. Together with you we would like to offer a livable perspective to children who had no chance so far.
We consider our approach to be exceptional as we work at maximum effectiveness and purely on a voluntary basis.
We are also proud of our "transparent accounting", which goes back to the year 2005, in which we list all individual donations and all payments to Africa and keep them publicly available. All expenditure documents are also stored online and can be viewed extensively by several "active children's home friends" and anyone who is interested.
Education as a start-up aid for an independent future
Our children receive through our club and our children's home as sound as possible a jump start in a hopefully good, independent future with a fair perspective.
By the way, the children say "my home" to the children's home and they address Ms. Evarlyn Charo, our director in Kenya, exclusively as "mom".

Information exchange is important to us
But our transparency goes further. It is also the subject of our work on the ground in Africa, because we have a very lively exchange with our children's house staff and above all with our (older) boys. The new media (Facebook and WhatsApp) quickly turned out to be the best tools to immediately identify and address emerging problems. Even against this background, our "bigger boys" mostly have their own smartphones, with which they naturally exchange many pictures and messages within the children's home groups, thus permanently concealing the local management and also the "active children's house friends" in Germany, hardly any maladministration can stay.
Our transparent donation system documents every donation made to us and every euro transferred to Kenya. We list the names of all donors, if they do not explicitly refuse, as well as the amounts made available to us and also document the transfers to Kenya here. So you can always convince yourself that your donation has really arrived with us.
Both, the association board and the active children's house friends, who have contributed to the previous work of the institution, or continuously contribute, exercise their work for the children's association on a unsalaried basis. You will not receive any allowances, attendance fees, expenses or other payments. Likewise, the regularly incurred travel expenses to Kenya are of course always paid privately by the association's board and by the "active children's house friends".
Every euro donated to us arrives without deduction where it is needed. All donations are 100% used for the children's home. Administrative costs are not incurred. The administration in Germany is supported by the "active Kinderhausfriends" completely private.
With this approach, we stand out very clearly from most comparable institutions.
Transparency in all areas is very important to us. Our sponsors should be informed about what happens to the money made available to us and how we want to further develop the children's home.
Details of the most important upcoming projects have been listed for you in our "Agenda 2020".
