Founder & CEO

Magu taught me how to crawl, walk eat "ibijumba", play "Karere", sheperd cows and carry a jercan of water and balancing skills. Magu taught me to read and write. As a child, I really belonged to the whole community. It indeed takes a village to raise a child. Looking back, I am humbled to realise how much blessed I am and how many opportunities God has graciously bestowed on me. I believe all those blessings are not only for me to enjoy but to share with others and be a channel of blessing, especially towards my young brothers and sisters from my native village who did not have similar chances as I!

Jannik Haenel

Founder & CFO

"Conducting a research about the infrastructure in Magu was a life-changing experience. Having the opportunity to get insight in another culture and the complexity of village life in Magu was and is truly fascinating. I grew up in a big family in Germany. We were taught to care for one another, to share and that God loves everybody alike. The circumstances in Magu are very different from where I grew up, but the love and care that I met is the same. I am glad to have the opportunity to work with the people in Magu to help children to reach their full potential."

Public Relations

Social justice is something that has been on my heart since I was a young girl. Grown up in a privileged world, where acces to high quality eduction, financial support and so many other opportunities was a matter of course and on the other side knowing that the biggest part of the world population

can‘t even think of those ressources left me wondering about the big and complex problem of social injustice and my personal resposibility.

I know that we cannot end poverty, but I am determined to use my personal ressources and God given gifts right where I am and where it is needed. I want to be part of what God is doing, and seeing people reaching their full potential.

Training Coordinator

"I was privileged to grow up in a big family with parents that encouraged us to dream big, give our best and pray for Gods blessing in it. Seeing the steps that have been taken and seeing the project growing shows me that eQuip Magu is God's project, not ours. I am truly honored that I can be part of God's plan in Magu and contribute my time and strength for the developement of an education concept and for whatever is needed."
