After the successful launch in November 2022, we are very pleased to now be able to exhibit in the town hall of the municipality of Alfter. The grand opening will take place at 5 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2023. (Address: Am Rathaus 7, 53347 Alfter).
During the opening hours of the town hall, the exhibition can then be seen up to and including February 8, 2023.
All images as well as the official Menschenfreude 2023 calendar are available for purchase. We are also pleased to receive donations that make our charitable work possible.
Impressions of life and culture – besides the daily project work
In addition to very practical, technical assignments – such as the installation of drinking water filters, the repair of school equipment or the construction of water pipes and wells – pictures have been created that reflect life, everyday life, the cultures of the countries visited. Personal perspectives and insights.
“The people are incredibly friendly, helpful and also very humble. It is very moving to see how you can make them happy with little things that are everyday for us. And how hospitable they are and show us their everyday life.” (Memories of the trip to Ethiopia in May 2022)
Thus the idea was born to present these personal pictures to a wider public in the context of an exhibition: MENSCHEN FREUDE BILDER with photographs by Kerstin Schley, Kathrin Anderseck and Jürgen Perteck – all volunteers of the association Menschenfreude e.V and passionate amateur photographers. (More about the persons here.)
Around 100 guests at the kick-off
To the first date of MENSCHEN FREUDE BILDER in the village community center in Alfter Gielsdorf the guests of the evening appeared very moved by the presented, partly very personal and emotional photographs, accompanying texts and artistic installations.
