About the Award: Karl Jungbecker Foundation has taken up the mission to nurture the local talent from under-developed countries in Africa, groom them and help them to work towards the resolution of problems they face in their local communities through sustainable development.
The turn of events that led to the beginning of our mission is fascinating. Here is how it started. Our founder, Mr. Christian RUMPFF, was invited by a Togolese friend to an event to promote local young talents. He was moved by the expression of hope and helplessness reflecting in the eyes of the young people at the same time. The lack of facilities that were holding these youngsters from realizing their full potential stirred an emotion inside him and he realized that there is a need to provide adequate support to these talented youngsters to actualize their potential. He decided that he must develop a well-structured program to help the Togolese youth realize their full potential. From that day, the Karl Jungbecker Foundation’s program was born as an initiative to nurture the young people from Togo to become future leaders of the country and take on the path of growth and development.
