We mourn the loss of Andrea Karsten, Mama Anna Tanzania, *20.4.1943 +13.2.2021

Andrea passed away peacefully in the arms of her children after a short, serious illness. The death of Andrea Karsten was also intensively commemorated in Tanzania. The "Mama Anna" kindergarten in Kizimkazi (South Zanzibar), named after her, held a funeral service. The women´s group TUFAHAMIANE, which was founded among others on Andrea´s impulse and was accompanied by her until her death, came together for a funeral service and commemorated Andrea.

Worldwards with the DTP

Our volunteer services are renowned for their quality! In the voluntary programs, the young adults from Germany and Tanzania find space for new encounters, intercultural exchange, meaningful cooperation and collecting experience in projects. Intensive preparation, support and reflection after completing the volunteer period are an important part of the projects. The programs are not only influential during the year, but also beyond. Many of the participants are committed to take an active part in our society after their voluntary service.
