A warm welcome to you!

These are the pages of Menschenfreude e.V. from Alfter near Bonn. We are very happy to welcome you here.

We are a non-profit association. We have been volunteering in humanitarian missions since 2018. Locally on site and worldwide. Our focus: the areas of education and health.

Currently we support projects in Nepal, Senegal, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Northern Greece, Armenia, Belarus, Germany as well as for Ukraine. We all have one thing in common: the desire to reach people in their life situations, not to leave them alone and to make them happy.

"I was very shocked by the poverty of the children. They sit half-naked on the side of the road, begging for food or to be able to buy things that are commonplace for us."

Learn more about us


Our beginnings are in Nepal. This is where we first became active. To date, we are active in 10 countries to help and bring joy to people in special circumstances.


We are still a young club. Our volunteers come together from many places. And many areas of life. Here we introduce ourselves.


Our work is done 100 percent on a volunteer basis. Your donations go entirely to our projects. Volunteers are always welcome.



In order to be able to realize our humanitarian projects, we depend on your help. In addition to active support on site, we need financial help. For many purposes. Be it concretely to support families after the flood disaster in Germany. Or to be able to procure relief supplies. For example, wheelchairs, hygiene products or school supplies. 

If you send us a monetary donation you can find our account details here or you can use our online donation function. We will gladly issue a donation receipt!

MENSCHEN FREUDE BILDER - ein großartiges Wochenende liegt hinter uns. Wir freuen uns riesig über die positive Resonanz auf unsere erste Foto-Ausstellung, die mit einer feierlichen Vernissage im Dorfhaus #Alfter eröffnet wurde - inmitten unserer 70 Exponate, begleitenden Texten und Artefakten aus den gezeigten Ländern.

Rund 100 Besucher*innen durfte unser Menschenfreude-Team rund um die Organisatorinnen Kerstin @kerstin_schley und Kathrin @kathrin_srp_vtg begrüßen. Herzlichen Dank für das Interesse, die Gespräche und die Unterstützung unserer gemeinnützigen Arbeit! 🙏

Der offizielle MENSCHEN FREUDE BILDER Kalender 2023 mit ausgewählten Motiven der Ausstellung ist über unsere Website sowie den Linktree in der Bio erhältlich! 🗓️☝🏻

Am 26. Januar 2023 zieht unsere Ausstellung weiter ins Rathaus Alfter. Weitere Termine sind geplant. 👍😃

Hier noch einmal die schönsten Bilder des Wochenendes 🧡!!

"When I see the children here and this huge joy, it really touches me. And the fact that you're really doing good with it is pretty great."
