Our commitment - cultural and social

Agentur Strothmann GmbH supports several projects in terms of organization and concepts, in some cases over a significant period of time now.

Villa Zanders

The Städtische Galerie Villa Zanders in Bergisch Gladbach is a location steeped in tradition and an integral part of the city’s cultural life. Since 1967, the former family mansion of the manufacturers Zanders has been owned by the city of Bergisch Gladbach. After a comprehensive renovation, the art gallery has offered temporary exhibitions with a focus on contemporary art on a regular basis since 1992. It covers about 1500 square meters on three floors.

Africachild e.V. is a relief organization dedicated to fight against poverty and disease of young mothers and children in Ethiopia and Kenya.

In Ethiopia, the organization supports young mothers aged between 15 and 17 years so that they don't have to live a life on the streets any longer. Africachild e.V. procures employment for these women with which they can sustain their families.

In Kenya, close to the border to Tanzania, an Africachild Village has been built on a shoreline site of 1.5 acres in the region of Kwale three years ago and works successfully. It provides refuge for young, often unmarried mothers offering primary emotional, psychosocial, medical and nutritional care.

Agentur Strothmann is a supporter of Africachild.
