Our Story

Friendship and passion connects

FEA e.V. is a non-profit association that was founded in Cologne in 2022.

Our founders Julia and René not only share a past employer but also a friendship that has lasted for over ten years. Over time, they both developed a shared passion and fascination for the African continent. After several discussions, it became clear to them that they wanted to contribute to greater justice through their own association. This idea gave rise to FEA.
