From 2008, Ferdinand Eisele is going to fund a project for AIDS orphans with a fixed percentage of its turnover every year and also takes over the sponsorship for five children in need within the scope of the project.
In October 2007, a project was started in KwaZulu-Natal helping families housing orphans and taking care of them.
There are many orphans and children affected by HIV/AIDS living in the communities of Msunduzi and Richmond needing help. The organisation Thandanani endows 1,800 affected children with direct support. Director Duncan Andrew says: "We motivate the communities to house affected children and to take care of them. For this purpose we provide training to women supporting those families, so-called volunteers. They get a little money for this."

From private involvement, “Kindernothilfe” was already known as a trustworthy and efficient aid organisation. Their permanent quality of work is guaranteed by the seal of approval as well as the prize given for transparency.
