Our Projects
In which countries are you currently active?
As of today we support education projects in Burundi, Ghana, Rwanda and Uganda. Go to "Our Projects" and find out more. (Click here)

How do we chose our partner projects?
All projects we support have a need to strengthen the educational infrastructure in their community. Moreover, accountability of the local organization and long-term sustainability of the project and partnership are vital to us. Before potential partnerships are formed, we visit the project in person and determine the terms of the partnership.
Donations
Can you issue donation receipts (Zuwendungsbescheinigung)?
Yes. Donation receipts are available for German donors. German donors please be aware that you do not need a donation receipt for donations under 250 EUR. In this case your bank statement is sufficient for your tax declaration.

US donors please use our US donation page to donate and receive a donation receipt (US donors click here).

Are recurring donations an option?
Yes please, we love your regular support! You can add this option via PayPal, by using the PayPal button in the donation segment of this homepage (click here) or set it up in your bank account. You can find our bank details here. If you need any assistance, please contact us at mail@tonigarrnfoundation.org.

Can I donate to a girl directly via a scholarship donation?
Yes, you can choose to sponsor a girl with her school tuition and other monthly or yearly expenses. On average a girl needs 38 EUR per month with all expenses covered (tuition, meals, school materials, housing, etc.). This is 456 EUR per year.
However, we will not connect donors and girls via personal contact. This is to protect the girl's privacy; we hope you understand.

How to get involved
Can I volunteer at the Toni Garrn Foundation?
From time to time we are looking for volunteers to support specific tasks within our organisation. This is usually remote and on a voluntary basis. Please contact us at job@tonigarrnfoundation.org and briefly describe what you are looking for. Thank you!

Can I volunteer in Africa at one of the projects the foundation supports?
Unfortunately no. If this should change in the future, we will make sure to make it public. Or sign up for our newsletter to not miss our updates.
