During his last visit to Tanzania with his family, he was attacked by local bandits at a remote bungalow hotel in Zanzibar, almost losing his wrists. He underwent surgery in Kenya and spent five months in Tanzania before returning to Denmark to recover. Despite the harrowing experience, he remained dedicated to Africa and committed to bringing about positive change on the continent and beyond.

Mr. Kjaergaard’s visionary approach to philanthropy and sustainable projects is commendable. He intends to achieve his goals by providing non-repayable grants to project owners worldwide in alignment with the United Nations Seventeen Sustainable Development Goals. To this end, he conducted meticulous research to identify financial models that would help him achieve his objectives. He, along with his mentor, an American financial expert, and his current Chief Financial Officer at NGIF, Mr. Jan Willumsgaard, who has a finance background, established the Non-Grant Investment Fund (NGIF) to fund sustainable projects worldwide.
