Visit to Foundation's Nepal Projects from 2000
Dr. Uta Rojan-Ketter visited two schools built in 2000 by the foundation in Nepal

In March 2016, the founder Dr. Uta Rojan-Ketter visited Nepal together with a group connected to the Plan International Foundation Center in Hamburg.

Sixteen years earlier, the Ketter-Foundation had financed two schools in cooperation with Plan International in the Makwanpur district, south of the capital Katmandu.

The earthquake of 2015 damaged both schools and the founder wanted to assess the situation first hand. Indeed, the Schuriyamai Secondary School in Hetauda is threatened to collapse due to damaged supporting structures. The Kalika Lower Secondary School in Fakel has lost its water supply and also suffered structural damages.

The schools, personnel and children greated Dr. Uta Rojan-Ketter, Friderike Schirr (Plan Foundation Center) and Claudia Reshöft with a lot of kindness and flower wreaths. The founder promise to help within the possible.

Seeing the schools operating after 16 years, giving 300 children in Hetauda and 140 children in Phakel access to education was a strong endorsement of the effectiveness of the Ketter-Foundation. Indeed we were moved to see the picture of the founders from the last visit in 2001 still on the walls of the school rooms.

A particular encounter re-inforced this sense of purpose and sustainability: a young woman approached Dr. Rojan-Ketter saying how she remembered her last visit in 2001. She was in 5th grade back then, today she is teach at the very same school…

Scholarship Scheme
Visit in Uganda in October 2015

In October 2015 Nils Ketter and Mathilde Grasset-Ketter visited the foundation's projects in Uganda. 

The foundation runs a scholarship scheme for 15 Ugandan students at a time (please refer to the full description under projects). Our visit comprised meetings with them, a fair number of our alumni (>50 by now) and the local partners running the program. We were again impressed by the quality of the students, the professional and personal progress of our alumni and the potential of this format going forward.

We also visited the orphanage currently being constructed by Sister Valentine. It will be linked to the boarding school of St Theresa Kisubi which the foundation has supported for a number of years.

Thank you to all who have given their time, energy and money for the Ketter-Foundation "Future for Children" - it was worth it!

We hope you will now enjoy even more reading about our work.
