About us

Our Target Group

Education is the key for a positive future of every single person as well as for a sustainable development of a whole country. This is why we support young people in developing countries in their access to education and thus set the course for a positive future and against poverty and corruption.

Our Goal

According to our motto “Accessible Education” we provide for the granting of scholarhips and funds for children, teenagers and young adults. We also provide earmarked funding for educational institutions, NGOs and public projects for health prevention and public education.

Our Concept

Waali publishes the applications for funding online. After successful crowdfunding we support our target group by paying for tuition fees, grants for school expenses, living costs and courses on health and hygiene.


Our fundraising concept is based on crowdfunding, i.e. usually through individual donations from various sponsors. We raise these funds online and through charity events. 100% of the funds received go to our projects, with no further deductions.
