Clean drinking water and a functioning energy supply are still not a matter of course in many parts of the world. Pipes and power lines are like the arteries in the human body. Without access to water and energy, a dignified life is not possible. Education is another key to development. It is also not accessible to everyone. But only with education can prosperity be created for future generations.

Against this background, the Dr. Helmut Rothenberger family established the TOOLS FOR LIFE Foundation in 2008, which has been committed to the common good ever since. With the network of partners built up over the years, the projects are implemented and also supported after completion. The funded projects are designed to achieve a sustainable improvement of living conditions and sustainability. The motto 'help for self-help' guides the work of the foundation.

Living together in Kelkheim e.V. (Miteinander leben in Kelkheim e.V.) is our HERO 2019. The association is committed to an integrative and diverse society in Kelkheim. Miteinander leben in Kelkheim 2017 was founded to bundle the voluntary commitment that was widely visible as a reaction to the numerous refugees in 2015.
