The association has currently 14 active members. The last general meeting of members took place in October 2014 in Sasbachwalden in the Black Forest. We are currently looking for locations where we can realize our first project. In spring 2014, some of our members went to Tanzania, and in autumn 2014, to India in order to examine possible locations for our projects. During the last general meeting, Dr. Margot Franken, a member of our association, presented two possible locations in Bolivia. In October 2014, we decided to go further into the construction of a boarding school for professional education near Abu Road, India. Before we can start, it is however necessary for our Indian partners to comply with the relevant regulations. The piece of land where the school is supposed to be constructed has a size of 4,000 m2 and it is located in the State of Rajasthan, 15 minutes to the northeast of Abu Road. We are also planning visits to Peru and Bolivia in May 2015.
Foundation of the association „Dörfer der Zukunft e.V.“ (Villages of the Future)
In November 2012, people from different professions and different regions of Germany came together in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler in order to found a charitable association named “Dörfer der Zukunft”. For an entire weekend, they discussed the articles of association and the aims of the association. Finally, they agreed on the last details and were able to take the necessary steps for the foundation of the association. The official registration of the association “Dörfer der Zukunft e. V.” took place at the local court of Koblenz on 9 July 2013.
