Thank you for running with us!
The first Make Me Smile Global Run was a great success. We were so happy about all the people around the globe supporting the work of Make Me Smile. We hope that you stay tuned for the next event.
Our commitment follows a holistic approach
We asked the people in Kenya what needs to change. Together, we identified three focus areas and developed solutions that we are working on in collaboration with the local communities. Our goal is a happier society in which all basic needs are met, everyone has equal rights and people have opportunities to independently improve their situation in the long term.
We help the people to help themselves - for the benefit of the children. Because we believe in everybody's potential.
Our focus areas
Our three focal areas fulfil seven of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals which have been established by the United Nations..

Founder and Managing Director
Your donation will be handled with the same care as if it were our own. During my ten years in development cooperation, I have learned how big of an impact can be made, even with the smallest means. That is why we take special care to ensure that every cent of your donation goes where it is needed most. We employ only local staff and continuously develop the local expertise of our organization by supporting our employees through university scholarships and further education. From the very beginning of each project, we consult the community and ensure their holistic participation, which results in the acceptance and success of our projects.
In addition to a high level of trust in our project team, an external auditor, regular project visits and continuous project reporting ensure transparency in Kenya. In Austria, Germany and Switzerland, our work is audited annually by the ministry of finance through external auditors.
