Network East Africa connects and sends professionals to promote peace and to support education in areas of crisis. With these efforts we plant seeds of love, based on our Christian faith.
Who we are
Network East Africa is an international branch of Marburg Mission Foundation. Matthias Scheitacker coordinates this network in Germany.
“During 10 years teaching at Bischop Barham University College in Uganda, I got in contact to many very trustworthy students and churches from Uganda, South Sudan and DRC. As Ugandan graduates expressed their desire to partner with their fellow alumni from South Sudan strengthening the church and education system there … I was requested to join and Network East Africa was born.”
Since 2004, Marburger Mission is a church foundation under civil law and registered as a charitable trust in Germany.
The foundation is supervised by the Protestant Church of Kurhessen-Waldeck.
How we work
We operate as an international network mainly with volunteers, united by our joint vision. We are convinced that creative solutions for strengthening education and promoting peace are best developed by open sharing on the ground – not on desks abroad. We can only reduce suffering together, everyone with his/her strength, knowledge and limits.
The correct handling of finances has top priority for us. We have committed ourselves to send 90 percent direct to the specific project. 10 percent is needed for publicity and administration. An independent legalised auditor reviews our organization every year.
The German Evangelical Alliance awarded us with their donation seal. This certificate is a quality criterion for non-profit organisations.
