Since ten years, the Anhalt University promotes student projects in underdeveloped areas and supports their implementation. In the past, a school and a children's library in South Africa, an educational and community center in Nepal and an infirmary with water treatment plant for the local population in the highlands of Guatemala could be realized. Currently the construction of a hospital on the southern coast of Haiti is planned. These projects are not only a benefit for the future users. Through this work, our students learn important social and intercultural skills, leadership and teamwork.
