Charity - Help for single mothers and children in Namibia

Konny von Schmettau, born 1962 in Hesselbach, in the Wittgensteiner Land Germany, already knew as child exactly what she wanted: To became a journalist and live in Africa. She fulfilled both her dreams.
In the age of nine she composed her first short stories and poems. During her University studies of Classical Archaeology and History of Art she began writing as free-lance journalist.
From 1989-1993 she reported from Uganda as first accredited foreign correspondent and war correspondent after Idi Amin’s dictatorship
In 2016 she published her 5th travel book from the series“On the road with Konny“.

Apart from writing and tour guiding, Konny is very active in Charity for Namibian mothers and children.

When the wood market in Okahandja burnt down in 2010, Konny organized funds to rise two big buildings for women to start their souvenir business again.
Since 3 years she assists the Tulinawa Kinder garden in Swakopmund with buildings, food, blankets, toys and many more.
Her new project is to assist women in Sangwali (Zambezi Region) in a community garden project.
