The association „Island Child Care – Hilfe für Kinder weltweit e.V.“ (Island Child Care – Help for Children Worldwide) was founded by circumnavigator and skipper Mareike Guhr together with other supporters in April 2019. As we grow in numbers, a continually greater team of supporters grows around our association and the aid projects. The aim of the association is to support children and young people in poor areas worldwide. This includes the support of schools, orphanages, hospitals and families as well as the improvement of the quality of life and social skills through the world of sailing.

We continue the work of Mareike, who started privately supporting aid projects in Haiti and Dominica on her sailing trips around the world since 2011. Further information about scheduled projects can be found here.
