Development aid - support

We support the founder of AGS Automations Greifsysteme Schwope GmbH, Franz Schwope in his development project in Africa - Uganda - Kampala - Kitulikizi.

Kitulikizi is a village of 1,000 souls, red earth, wood and clay huts with corrugated iron roofs, open cooking areas, a few animals, a few fields, a church. Water comes from the well, and when the sun goes down at seven in the evening, it gets dark in the huts, because there is no electricity here. A village like many others in Africa. But in just five years, Kitulukizi will be a village that serves as a role model; a village where others travel to see how things can be different. This is how Franz Schwope has set out to do it.

Here, Franz Schwope has set himself the goal of improving the standard of living in this village with energetic support. It's like a business game - only not on the computer, but for real in the middle of the African bush.
