The Team

The BEF e.V. was registered on 28.04.2021 at the district court of Hamburg. The association is currently active in Cameroon, Nigeria and Namibia and fights poverty with education.

“Our goal is to help people help themselves. People should also take responsibility themselves in order to find their own way out of poverty in the long term.”

– Hurilch Talla, founder BEF e.V.

Our Team

Six volunteers are working for “Bildung in den Entwicklungsländern Fördern e.V.” in Germany, Nigeria, Namibia and Cameroon.
