About us

We are a team that believes anyone deserves a fair chance in life

We're a highly motivated German-Ghanaian team with support from the Netherlands, South Africa and the UK who cares deeply about the work we do. We love to experiment with new ideas and are not afraid to try new ways. Also, we like to have a lot of fun while doing it.
