Kembé is recruiting !

The Kembé Foundation envisions a world where every community is able to take care of itself and is independent from development aid. Therefore, the aim of the student- and alumni initiative is to have a positive impact on developing countries through social entrepreneurial projects.

We have completed several successful projects in Haïti (poultry; 2010), Bolivia (garment, 2011) and India (diary, 2012) and recently we started up a new sunflower-farming project in Tanzania.

Our mission to fight poverty through social entrepreneurship, this project aims to empower local farmers and give them the means to better their economic situation.

Recently we started up a new sunflower-farming project in Tanzania. For the academic year 2016/2017 the endeavor is to work with model farms and transfer knowledge through training in time for harvest time this fall.

We provide an inspirational environment to develop your personal skills, where there is room for own ideas and initiative.
