July 2018: David

David (by now of legal age) has now decided to live his life independently. We think this to be somewhat premature but he wants to be on his own.

David finished secondary school end of last year and could have been starting an apprenticeship at a good hotel in Mombasa once the applied-for ID was ready to be collected.

His attained average in school was unfortunately not sufficient in order for him to take up post-secondary studies.

If possible in any way, the Kenyan youth welfare center strives to reintegrate children into their families. Faima has thus been living with her mother for w while now.

Her mother has remarried and her now stable financial circumstances even allow for her to pay the fees for Faima’s education.

March 2018: Car Repairs

Due to the climate and the bad condition of the roads the cars for the Nice View projects have to be repaired almost constantly.

The repairs are then done immediately on-site (e.g. at the Children’s Village) or at the Nice View repair shop, where customer service is also regularly delivered.

The staff have been well-trained by Edi Dürr and the cars thus rarely need to be repaired outside of Nice View resulting in considerable cost savings.

Your team of Projekt Schwarz-Weiß

March 2018: House made from bottles

Already a while back Gudrun Dürr became aware of using plastic bottles to build houses (earthquake and bullet proof as well as thermo-insulating). Since there are plenty of plastic bottles in Kenya (which are then filled with sand) and the issue of housing the day-askari (security personnel at the gate) was not yet solved, the staff (maintenance and cabinetmaking) took up her idea and realized it under the competent guidance of Mr. Thomas Müller. Julius, the day-askari, had often stood at the gate in pouring rain or scoring heat and is now very happy about his new little house.
