Karl Jungbecker Foundation has taken up the mission to nurture the local talent from under-developed countries in Africa, groom them and help them to work towards the resolution of problems they face in their local communities through sustainable development.
The turn of events that led to the beginning of our mission is fascinating. Here is how it started. Our founder, Mr. Christian RUMPFF, was invited by a Togolese friend to an event to promote local young talents. He was moved by the expression of hope and helplessness reflecting in the eyes of the young people at the same time. The lack of facilities that were holding these youngsters from realizing their full potential stirred an emotion inside him and he realized that there is a need to provide adequate support to these talented youngsters to actualize their potential. He decided that he must develop a well-structured program to help the Togolese youth realize their full potential. From that day, the Karl Jungbecker Foundation’s program was born as an initiative to nurture the young people from Togo to become future leaders of the country and take on the path of growth and development.
Although, initial operations will start from Togo, in the future, we aim to identify young talent from all over African continent and empower them to take on the challenges they are facing in their local communities and we strongly believe this is the stepping stone that will help in overall uplift of the living standards of the people on the continent.
According to UNICEF, 81.2% of Togo’s Population live below the poverty line of less than $2 per day. What is more shocking is that about 49.5% of that population is under 18 years of age. In a world where education defines the ability to compete in an ever-growing complex market, it has become paramount to give these youth a chance to compete. We take on the mission to identify talented students from all over the country, who are unable to pursue higher education due to financial challenges. We will help these students by providing them with an opportunity to study in reputable Universities in Europe by offering earned scholarships and providing financial support for their higher education and research projects. After completing their education successfully, these students will come back to work amongst the local community by opening new businesses and providing the local people with more opportunities to work and earn their livelihood with dignity.
We aim to develop a pan-regional network of scholars to enhance the effectiveness of their projects and the benefits envisioned by them.
