Foundation Board

Helmut Hälker

from Schwörstadt

During my professional travels I learned about many injustices in Africa. The foundation gives me the chance to get involved in this and the issue of increasing biodiversity.

Wilfried Hälker

from Kyritz.

I would like to be with enthusiastic and motivated members on board and in the board of trustees, so that we can realize our purpose of foundation together, effectively and sustainably. I am looking forward to our common work.

Board of Trustees

Sebastian Hofer

from Lellichow

Working at the foundation allows me to actively contribute to creating a greener world as we open doors to new opportunities and better living standards for young people in Africa.


Josef Flöhr

from Bad Saarow.

The two major goals of the foundation, on the one hand sustainably operated forestry, the proceeds of which are used to support education and on the other hand environmental protection in developing countries in Africa, deserve recognition and support. For these reasons, I try to get involved as far as possible.


Christoph Nellen

Auch die nachfolgenden Generationen müssen noch in unserer Umwelt leben können. Dies schaffen wir nur gemeinsam.  Mit der Förderung von Bildung in Afrika aus Erträgen eines nachhaltigen Waldkonzeptes hier in Deutschland ist ein guter Weg zu diesem Ziel eingeschlagen.

The concept of environmental protection in combination with development cooperation on the African continent convinced me immediately. As a project manager, I want to give something back to a piece of earth and its people and animals and create a better future for them.
