About our charity

BOA-Afrika e.V. was founded by Jasmin Rüther from Brazil and the sisters Jessica and Susanne Poick from Germany in 2011.


We got to know eachother during a voluntary service in Ghana in 2004.

Spending several holidays in Africa we always took donations for hospitals and schools with us.


In 2010 we finally thought about founding a society to collect money for non-profit purposes.

BOA-Afrika e.V. was then established in 2011.

In 2013 BOA- Afrika e.V. became a registered charity in Germany.


To spare more money for our projects we pay for administration expenses privately.
