Condor and SIXT are pleased to be able to put their strong partnership of many years now also in the service of the weakest of our society: St. Joseph's House of Hope school in Mombasa, Kenya, a help alliance project, also enables children from socially disadvantaged families to attend school. In recent years, the school has grown into a complex educational institution, with offerings ranging from kindergarten to high school graduation. A particular focus is on practical training, which enables young people to learn a trade. Currently, locksmiths, carpenters, auto mechanics and tailors are trained there.

With the support of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation DRYING LITTLE TEARS and "ConTribute", it has been possible to expand the range of courses on offer to include the new training classes for cooking, baking and catering as well as hair, beauty and massage salon.

Poverty is a big factor in the area around the school. Nevertheless, many people attach great importance to haircuts and nail care. Massages provide relief from pain and the production of baked goods and preparation and delivery of food are needed all over the world. Therefore, after completing their training, trainees can work anywhere in the country and also in neighboring regions, independently or employed. This contributes significantly to the improvement of their lives.
