‘You Are Your Future: Du bis ding zokunf – wenn nicht jetzt wann dann’ is a current and important project by the Sauti Kuu Foundation. Asking the question: If not now, when? [wenn nicht jetzt wann dann], the project offers young people in Cologne an opportunity to improve their situation in life and to implement their ideas with the necessary self-confidence. Children and teens benefit from a variety of workshops to strengthen their social and personal skills, and give them the opportunity to build their lives as confident young adults!

A prominent supporter of the project is the Cologne band Höhner, who used their concert on 23 April 2016 to present the project before a large audience. An additional highlight was the premiere of the song ‘Erhebt eure Stimmen’ [‘Raise Your Voices’], written specially for the Sauti Kuu Foundation, in a rendition by the Höhner, Dr. Auma Obama and the refugee chorus ‘Grenzenlos’ [which is German for ‘Boundless’].
