Hamburg – The Kipaji business group is growing. The Kipaji non-profit UG (limited liability) is established, registered and recognized. With the new legal form, we are extending our legal foundation for our OCULAR project and other educational projects.
Garbsen – Our OCULAR project takes place for the first time at a school in the form of a project week.
Hamburg – In the course of the current refugee crisis in Europe, Kipaji has created a toolbox to support volunteer German teachers. Here you can find free teaching material, numerous links as well as helpful tips and tricks.
Hamburg / Tanzania – Kipaji can support 27 of the over 70 applicants with a scholarship. Through the support the students can finish their continuing education. Firstly, school fees and, in some cases, accommodation and food are covered.
World Wide Web – A Crowdfunding Campaign collects over € 2,500 to help Tanzanian students with no financial resources to complete their secondary school education.
Tanzania – Jendrik Peters travels through Tanzania to develop the concepts of scholarships and educational projects with pupils, schools, universities, authorities and the ministry, and to establish initial partnerships.
Somewhere in Germany – The project gets a name. From a long list of possible project names “Kipaji” succeeds. The word comes from the African Kiswahili and means “talent, ability and gift”.
Mbeya – Jendrik Peters teaches a 7th grade in the computer class of the Sangu Secondary School.
Surrounded by 12 to 14-year-olds, a young man (28) stands out of the crowd. He worked for over 14 years to fulfill his dream of going to a secondary school. The determination of the man impresses Jendrik – the first thought of a foundation was born.
