The Kulu Manzi scholarship program enters its second round
We are very pleased to introduce the second recipient of our scholarship to you today. This year we again launched the scholarship together with the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town. In this way we enable a student with limited financial means to continue her studies, which she would otherwise not have been able to afford. The name of this year’s scholarship holder is Emilia Adonis. She is from Eerste River, a suburb of Cape Town. With the help of our funding, she was able to enroll in the “Sports Development” master’s course. Emilia is an ambitious and determined young woman and already has an impressive path behind…
Kulu Manzi becomes an association!
At the end of a turbulent 2020, we turned Kulu Manzi into a non-profit (unregistered) association. With the founding of the association, we have taken another decisive step in the history of Kulu Manzi and have rewarded ourselves for an admittedly not always easy year. The Kulu Manzi project thus becomes the Kulu Manzi association. The big advantage for you as a supporter: From now on we are allowed to issue donation receipts and thus provide our donors with tax breaks. Something hasn’t changed, though: Our primary goal is still to make sure that all donations reach our projects in Cape Town without any detours. We are sure that this…
Inside Kulu Manzi
Do you sometimes wonder what we do at Kulu Manzi all the time? Usually we give you updates about news from Cape Town, share the latest developments in our projects with you or tell you how our current protégé is doing at university. Today, however, we would like to give you an insight into our – well, maybe not daily, but regular – work for Kulu Manzi. It has changed a lot in the past few years. In the early days of Kulu Manzi – when we were still called the Kulu Manzi Surfing Foundation – a large part of our work was supporting the local Lavender Hill children. After…
Meet Rusche Petersen
We would like to introduce you to the first scholarship holder that we are allowed to support in the history of Kulu Manzi in his studies. Our scholarship holder is called Rusche Petersen and comes from the Manenberg township. With our support, he was able to officially enroll in the “Sport, Development and Peace” diploma course in April 2020. He lives in the township of Manenberg, has three siblings, loves sports and is otherwise very committed. Rusche is an impressive young person who has had to go through a lot in his life and, despite everything, has managed to go his own way. You can find out more about Rusche…

Kulu Manzi in times of Corona crisis
Covid-19 does not leave South Africa without a trace. After the start of the national lockdown on March 26th, curbing the virus has top priority. The rule is: stay at home and slow down the spread. Fortunately, most townships are still relatively unaffected. Nevertheless, we look towards Lavender Hill with concern: where so many people live together in a confined space, social distancing is a far greater challenge than for us in Germany. We hope that the measures will work and that the townships will be largely spared. Meanwhile, we are using the time and are working on new cooperation opportunities from Germany. After we established the handball programs at…
Kulu Manzi starts its own website
We are proud to finally be able to present our own website to you! Hopefully this will give you an even better insight into the project. You now have the opportunity to follow the most important changes, events and results of the project in detail. You can inform yourself about our great partners and of course about ourselves. We look forward to receiving your feedback! Kulu Manzi
Highschool graduates of 2009 collect € 446.50 for a good cause on the occasion of their anniversary
On July 7th, 2019 the Abitur class 2009 of the Franz-Ludwig-von-Erthal Gymnasium in Lohr am Main celebrated its tenth anniversary. The graduates of the former “Rostblock” took this as an opportunity to revive the old times. From large parts of Germany they already gathered the evening before for a tour of their former hometown. On the anniversary day itself, the former students had the opportunity to visit their former educational facility again together with the then grade leader. Afterwards everyone came together for coffee and cake, before the evening ended with a cozy get-together with a barbecue. The class has once again proven that they can not only celebrate, but…
