Endowment Fund

Contribute to the Dorothe Schneebeli Fund

Executive Director Alice Iddi-Gubbels, and her husband, Peter, worked and lived with Christian and Dorothe Schneebeli in Walewale, Ghana in 1980 – 1982.  In December 2013, Christian and Dorothe visited La’Angum Learning Center and the local community.  Dorothe in particular was impressed by the educational projects, and returned to Switzerland with a determination to support the school in some way.  The local community was also impressed by the remarkable Dorothe – the teachers called her “the Laughing Woman.”

Thus it was a shock to all to learn that Dorothe passed away unexpectedly, just weeks after she and Christian returned to Switzerland from Ghana.   Dorothe had a large, open heart, and wonderfully embracing personality, that deeply touched and infected all who had the good privilege to know her.

In her memory, friends and family donated over $18,000 to PAMBE Ghana to start an endowment fund. It is with profound gratefulness that PAMBE Ghana announces that the Dorothe Schneebeli Fund has now been established through a board-designated fund with Fidelity Investments.
