General QuestionsWeShamwari is a Swiss charity association founded in Zurich, Switzerland in February 2017 by a diverse group of friends, which share a passion for travelling, meeting people and experiencing the cultures of the world.
Our vision is to enhance a world where people, especially children, living in poverty are able to take control of their future and actively shape it. We wish to give an opportunity to as many African children and communities as possible through access to high-quality education, healthy food, safe playgrounds, aimed micro-credits, sport activities, and ecological literacy. We aim to identify and fund selected programs which will support African people, animals and/or the natural environment. Some projects will have short-term, easy-to-reach goals, while others will be longer term and hopefully have an even more significant impact.
We want to provide high transparency and active communication to our donors for each selected and sponsored project. We hope that our donors will be motivated to support our cause and give a small, but meaningful contribution to the African communities. Every single step will bring us closer to reaching our aspiration: to shape a better world, where we are proud to live.
All projects are realized and implemented by non-governmental authorities and volunteers in close collaboration with the local communities. 100% of the sponsored funding will go to the projects – we don’t take any money for marketing, financial or any other administrative activity
