How can students improve their performance at school? This was the subject of two bestsellers I published in 2020 and 2021. I then realised that there are many young people who cannot even go to school. This gave me a new idea: to build a school in Africa.
I therefore founded the association “Let’sBuildASchool” in April 2021 and, together with my team, I focused on approaching influencers as a target group for donations. But seeing as we had never built a school before, we needed a partner organisation to build a school on site. We had very high expectations, but we found the ideal partner in the Christian-Liebig-Stiftung e.V. (CLS). We started fundraising around the 2021 Christmas season and to our surprise, the YouTubers “Arazhul” and “LarsOderSo” promised to meet our fundraising target of 60,000 Euros from their own funds. We were gobsmacked. That really was the best Christmas present! Thanks to these generous donations and a notable financial contribution from CLS, Ndalapa Primary School was completely renovated and expanded in 2022.
