Aktive Jugend

(Young People Taking Action)

ACTION INSTEAD OF A LOT OF TALK!

About Us

We are convinced that it is possible to mitigate the suffering of others around the globe if all of us who are in a position to do so make contributions. 

Based on this compassionate belief, we provide developmental support, youth advocacy and education.

 

Our Story 

Aktive Jugend e.V. has its roots in a group of friends who met regularly for many years to discuss current events, embark on explorative journeys and excursions.  

Among the topics we investigated in depth were developmental support and youth advocacy. We explored and questioned the existing concepts. Driven by the Confucius quote “It’s better to one small candle of gratitude than to curse the darkness,” we developed our own concept aiming at our active involvement in shaping our distant and near-by environs. In 2006, we took our concept to the public. 

Goals

The objective is to guide adolescents onto the path of responsible community living. The focus is on the provision of education paired with the promotion of tolerance and compassion. We work to not only realize these goals in our own country, but in particular also through developmental support that we provide abroad. From our perspective, the main goal of developmental aid is to provide the kind of support that helps others help themselves. It is not our aim to help in specific and temporary situations, but to develop a sustainable system that activates societies.  

Activities  
  • Developmental support for select projects 

  • Emergency rescue and aid  

  • Benefit events 

  • Information booths

1,805 million men, women and children go to bed hungry every day because of food shortages

1. Education

Education is a human right. Consequently, by building educational institutions, Aktive Jugend e.V. makes contributions to programs that make this right available to poor people all over the world.

In many developing countries, millions of children are unable to attend school because of the level of poverty, which also results in the lack of pertinent infrastructures. As a result, Aktive Jugend e.V. builds educational facilities in select project countries. The association also supplies writing materials and books to these institutions and their students. Besides traditional classes, the curriculum also comprises health information programs.

2. Nutrition, Health

Nutrition and health are two topics that go hand in hand – especially in Africa. According to UNICEF statistics dating back to 2014, 6.3 million children around the world die before they reach the age of five.  Aktive Jugend e.V. supports local medical infrastructure projects in select countries by donating devices as well as medications and by distributing food packages.

-

3.Water

Many people around the globe cannot take access to clean water for granted.  Especially in the rural regions of Africa and Asia, hundreds of millions of people are compelled to obtain their drinking water from rivers, lakes or polluted water sources.  According to the CARITAS International organization, 10,000 men, women and children die daily from diseases caused by contaminated water.  Through its water supply projects, Aktive Jugend e.V.  takes preventative action. The construction of fountains and collection pools to store rainwater brings clean water into the immediate vicinity of villages.

“Being good and leading a good life means to give others more than you take from them.”

“The world would be a miserable place if you would not help those living in misery.”

(Torquato Accetto 1590/98-1640)
