AlumniKUS Training ship Thor Heyerdahl
We make it possible for children of less well-off backgrounds to participate in a “classroom under sail” aboard the Thor Heyerdahl. In winter, from mid-October to the end of April the Thor Heyerdahl is the campus for the school project “KUS”, which is put into practise by the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg.

“It is a matter that concerns you”. With this Latin motto we want to encourage girls to take more responsibility for their own lives. Education for girls and boys is a basic liberty. Girls in Burkina Faso and throughout the world find themselves under increasing pressure to drop out of school in order to take care of their families. The barriers for girls are considerably higher for girls than for boys.
