“I started as a volunteer at Namaste Community Foundation (Formerly: Namaste Children´s House) in 2008 – and the love and passion there entered a place in my heart. Since then I keep returning to Nepal, because it has become my second home.
With Karin Chroszcz and Tom Probst (both also former volunteers and in love with Nepal), I run a charity called “Friends of Children – Nepal e.V.” in Germany and try to support Namaste as well as other projects. We always keep returning to meet the kids and the staff, see what good changes have taken place and what fabulous new plans are to be achieved.
I am very lucky that my fate brought me to Namaste Community Foundation – it changed my life…thank you very much for every second at NCF-Nepal, for the love, the friendship and for being such dedicated people who keep inspiring me.”
