a project of the heart from

. . .  A 'social enterprise' project, which I launched together with masifunde. . .

izandla zethu means our hands in the isiXhosa language.

Our hands are made to move and create.


This thought inspired me to start the izandla zethu project in South Africa.

Here I would like to give you an insight into the creation and development of this project.



Order your jewel online 

or simply come to our izandla zethu workshop as part of your masifunde visit during your South Africa trip in Walmer Township, Gqeberha.

There you can also buy jewels in the MyMito Café with the best coffee and healthy snacks.

Become part of our community

With your financial support we can enable more young people to receive a training.

The “Spende” button takes you to the masifunde donation page. There you can enter or select any amount and type of donation. Please enter "izandla zethu" in the title and your support will be provided directly to our project.

...or organise your support yourself in your online banking:

masifunde donation account:

IBAN DE66 5095 0068 0001 6058 56


Sparkasse Bensheim

Intended use: "izandla zethu"

You can claim your donation as tax deductible: You will receive a donation receipt from masifunde. When making a transfer, please include your email or postal address in the intended purpose.


The voluntary team of the non-profit organisation masifunde learner development guarantees that all income and donations of izandla zethu flows into the project to support the participating young people.

I set up "izandla zethu african jewellery" as a private person - supported by masifunde. As a source of ideas, mentor and sponsor, I act in this pro bono project on a purely voluntary basis.
