Ambatana is Swahili for “solidarity”.

That’s exactly what we care about.

Das Team von Ambatana

When Lena Loidl and Verena Donislreiter were themselves still volunteering in Kenya in 2013, their friends and families in Germany showed solidarity and spontaneously organised a fundraising campaign for the Kenyan organisation YISOG without their knowledge. That’s how the story began.

In order to provide long-term support, Ambatana e.V. was founded in May 2014 as an initiative by young, dedicated people. Ever since, our organisation has been working together with YISOG to support children at risk in Kenya. Our key project is the Rescue Centre. Find out more about the Rescue Centre here.
