In 2021, we will continue the successful measures to protect needy children. In addition, the following adjustments and new projects are planned and / or implemented:
Electricity in the center
With the existing solar system, we were able to gain some lighting and electricity for devices. The concept has now been supplemented with 30 powerful panels and numerous storage batteries. The technical planning was quite complex and implementation is ongoing. If everything goes well, working conditions will be greatly improved in 2021 (light, security, sewing workshop, carpenter’s workshop, food storage, etc.).
First training in the carpenter’s workshop
An important milestone to complement sustainable support and training is the commissioning of our carpenter’s workshop. As a counterpart to the sewing studio, another important and useful craft is to be taught there. The building is ready and the equipment is on site. As soon as the solar system works, we will start setting up the studio and will start operations in the course of 2021 with the first training.
Further training for our employees in the reception center
In order to better encourage the children according to their respective abilities, we continuously review our pedagogical methods and promote the training of our staff on site. Under the direction of Nina Wick, we will accelerate school development and the training of our teachers through various specific programs in 2021.
Extensions in the sewing studio
The training in the sewing studio will be expanded: in 2021, we will start the prodction of clothing for third parties. In this way, our trainees can practice – in a proteced environment – running a small business, selling their products and being in contact with customers.
