WHY IS OUR FOCUS ON AFRICA?
Poverty, the lack of gender equality, the lack of prevention and social constraints. The greatest demand is in sub-Saharan Africa, where the birth rates fell the least. Here, the population is expected to almost quadruple by the end of the century. Our goal is to break the devil’s circle out of poverty and population growth. For: poverty leads to high population growth and high population growth leads to more poverty.
Tanzania today has a population of 50 million people. As early as 2050, an estimated 130 million people will live here. For these people, schools, hospitals and enough food must be available – but already today most countries have problems to provide people with basic goods.
Many Asian states have shown that a way out is possible: they have invested in education and health programs as well as in family planning initiatives – and thus experienced an enormous economic upturn within a very short time. This is also possible in Sub-Saharan Africa.
