With DAKTARI's continuous development we are starting to run out of space in our busy kitchen. The room is now too small and we are missing the space to tidy everything and hide it away from hungry wild animals. Therefore, this project aims to raise the sufficient funds to renovate DAKTARI's kitchen and make it big enough and more practical, which is an expense that we cannot afford to cover alone.

While our cooks are always productive, their work environment needs to be improved. Renovating the kitchen will allow our staff to work in a healthier atmosphere and in a more practical and lighter environment! With a bigger kitchen, DAKTARI will continue to provide the best food for our children, staff and volunteers.


A local builder, who has already worked for DAKTARI could do the renovation accordingly to our needs. The funds will buy the material to extend the kitchen and to pay the local builder. At this stage, we cannot afford to cover all of the costs by ourselves. This microproject would allow us to maintain the successful growing number of children and volunteers, who come to DAKTARI. The renovation will lead to a cleaner and bigger kitchen, as well as a more hygienic and fresher work environment.

Long-Term Impact

Providing educational support beyond DAKTARI as well as being able to maintain and update our camp regularly for both volunteers and children is something crucial for DAKTARI. The kitchen is an important and essential part of our daily life and this project will allow us to run a fully functioning work environment. We believe this is a worthy, long-term investment in our volunteers' and children's health and well-being.
