“We are responsible not only for this we do but also for this we don’t do.”

Molière, 1622 – 1673

Dear friends and supporters of The Life to Share,

After seven successful years we are proud to report you from our work for the kids and young people in the Third World. From a private initiative we grow to a registered society which has a big reputation in the Bavarian society. Nothing has changed in our empathy for the desperate need of the people, communities and humanitarian projects we support. But now as a registered society at court of justice we are able and allowed to print fiscal donation receipts.

Nothing has changed in our aims too: We support especially children and young people in the world they need our help.

Since 2011 our helping hand gave more than 280.000 Euros to 26 projects, please see our list (LINK). In 2019 we handed out more than 100.000 Euros for bore wells, health care and education.

Direct donate – direct impact. This is our credo. All our projects are under direct survey of our project leaders mainly the bishops of the catholic church, missionaries and sisters. The donation is always direct linked with the project. That means your money for the education of young girls, young girls will be sent directly to the school without any deduction.

There will be spent no money for administration or advertising. The money goes directly to the project – 100 percent!

When you are reading this homepage you will mention there is a priority in India. His excellency Bishop Paul Maipan was the first partner we met in the Third World. He always was a reliable and a person of integrity to us with a big community of millions poor people. They need clean water, sanitary facilities and even churches.

Now further requests had reached us for new projects from many countries in Africa.


Hartmut Bannert, President

Projects in focus

Also in this year we would like to give girls and young ladies in India the opportunity to get independence. In classes of 30 girls they learn how to taylor and sew clothes. We need for such a class 8.500 Euro. At the end of the class the girls get a diploma and as a gift a new sewing machine for their own so that they can start immediately in an independent working life.
