Sustainability
Dentists for Africa has been providing development aid in three areas since 1999.


Until today we have established
14 dental units in Kenya and facilitated
890 sponsorships for orphans. More than 400 of our sponsees have so far finished their vocational training.


Sustainable cooperation in dentistry, training and social projects.

"The three pillars- dental project, sponsorship project and widow´s cooperative are interconnected and benefit from each other. Many sponsees choose medical professions and later contribute to our work."

Dr. Peter Dierck, General Secretary
