Nonprofit Organisation

Friends together for one school!

Together with friends, families and partners, we want to expand the existing educational opportunities for children in Guatemala & provide them with better access to education to help them achieve their dreams.

Our Organisation

We started with 12 friends and have grown steadily since then. We are always happy about new fundingfriends!

Our Goal

Together with our own, but also with donations from partners and you, we want to improve the educational opportunities in Guatemala.

What is behind fundingfriends?

It all started with 12 friends pursuing a common goal.

The Initial Position

In Guatemala, the right to education is enshrined in the constitution. Attendance at a 6-year elementary school is compulsory, the only type of school that the state must make available to all children free of charge. Despite this, around 245,000 girls and boys between the ages of 7 and 12 still do not attend school. Unfortunately, the percentage of school-age children not attending school has increased significantly in recent years, from 5.5% in 2006 to 19% in 2015.

Our Mission

Our mission is clear – to give children in Guatemala better access to education! In addition to building more schools, this also includes further improving the quality of the existing educational opportunities and being able to ensure the sustainable continued financing of the projects.

Education has made a lot of things possible for all of us. Now it’s payback time, and we want to give other people better access, too.
As a circle of friends, we also want to motivate you to give back more consciously together with friends, family and partners.

What we do

We discuss a lot together as a team and circle of friends about ideas on how to make our projects sustainable.

Collect ideas

The start of everything is a good idea and the discussion.

Collect donations

100% of our donations go to the sponsorship fund. We finance the association exclusively through membership fees.

Realize projects

Collecting donations is not enough. We get down to work together and implement the projects on site.

Why us?

Even existing schools and buildings in Guatemala are often in poor condition. In poor areas, classrooms are often built with corrugated iron walls and the teacher’s desk is made of a few bricks. In other cases, each student must bring a bucket of water to flush the toilet. Earthquakes, landslides and floods have caused irreversible damage to many school buildings, and the affected students have no classrooms for an indefinite period.

We from fundingfriends are the first association from Osnabrück, which is committed to better educational opportunities in Guatemala and has already entered into cooperations with experienced associations from Germany. We have our entire focus on the one project and are 100% behind it, as many of our members also have a private interest in the success of our project through travel and personal experience. We all know each other from our studies and want to pass on the chance of a good education together as well.
