AGAPE e.V.

The non-profit association Agape has been active in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Tibet and Romania since 1991. The focus of the association is on disadvantaged children for whom the association has built orphanages and schools in slums and rural areas. The aim of the association is to leave no one behind and to give children from poor families the opportunity to receive an education. Furthermore, the association works to ensure that these children also have access to clean drinking water.

 

On our homepage we document the history of the association and thus the great life's work of the honorary chairwoman Christine Weitmann and the active members and partners from the sponsorships. Many of her projects are of course continuing and new ones are constantly being added. We provide information about the current projects of AGAPE e. V., give an insight into the concrete work of our current team and the development of the association.

 

We, that is:

Dr. Martin Maier (1st Chairman), Hans-Peter Hebel (2nd Chairman), Christine Weitmann (Honorary Chairman), Charlotte Stirn (Treasurer) and Annika Meuter (Secretary). The financial side is further supported by Josif Herlo (treasurer) and the tax consultant Elisabeth Schneiss.

 

Please feel free to contact us: We are happy about interested questions, new members and last but not least about every donation.

AGAPE e.V. aims to provide all children with equal access to education and at least one hot meal a day.

At the villages Sholop, Boalia and Dadpur, existing deep wells drilled by AGAPE e.V. or other well owners were fitted with pipelines. This has considerably improved the efficiency of the water supply. At the locations, 4 schools with a total of more than 1,000 pupils as well as several markets and restaurants are now supplied with running and clean water. This significantly improves the hygiene and health of the people. Visible results can be achieved with little effort.

A yoghurt factory now has running water. The hygienic conditions have visibly improved.
