This project started in 2010 with the renovation and reconstruction of the Namununga School in the Chibombo District. The requirements for successful learning and motivational surroundings were created out of poor circumstances like terrible hygienic conditions, overcrowded classes, dilapidated school buildings and a lack of teachers and teaching materials.
The Foundation supports the reconstruction of all the school buildings. Gaining new teachers was made possible by building 10 houses for them.
The ﬁrst project of the TRANSEARCH ChildFund Foundation was the construction of a primary school in Dai, a remote district 3 hours north-west of Hanoi.
100 children were ﬁnally able to go to a good, child-oriented school. In addition jobs were created for 13 teachers. After the dedication of the school in 2008 the building was equipped with three modern classrooms, a teachers’ common room, a library and access to running water and electricity as well as to suitable sanitary installations. Later the school became a meeting point for young and old through the creation of a playground.
Since 1979 we have experienced how aid is possible through straightforward means with sponsorships through ChildFund for over 30 children. In 2006 we fulﬁlled a longstanding dream with the establishment of our Foundation. Our goal is to create better, long term living and growing conditions for children in developing countries.
To this end we invest in access to a healthy lifestyle and education and promote sustainability through helping people to help themselves.

This included the entire power supply, the installation of water supply as well as the construction of modern sanitary facilities. The Foundation also provided tables and chairs and organized the acquisition of teaching materials, reconstruction of sports areas, creation of a school garden as well as the building and equipping of a school laboratory and the foundation of an Anti-Aids Club. A further step is the provision of computers.
The school centre is known today as a "Centre of Excellence" due to this progress and these achievements. The spectrum ranges from a pre-school for the 3-6 year olds that will open in early 2016 to the ﬁ nal exam after the 9th year. From 2016 onwards the school can be attended by about 1,200 pupils. Medical care would be rounded off by a projected "Medical Care Centre".
The Foundation uses its investment income as well as all donations assigned to a speciﬁed use solely for the provision of help, protection, support, enlightenment and education for the children. I personally guarantee that 100% of all donations are used for sponsorship schemes chosen by us. The children and their teachers and parents are grateful for each individual ﬁnancial gift.
