Wohnschiff Altona project in Hamburg — provisions for girls, training, leisure activities
Hamburg | 24.02.2016 | terre des hommes
Since May 2016, terre des hommes and the Beurer-Foundation have been helping refugee children and young people living in container-style housing facilities in Billstieg and Berzeliusstraße in Hamburg to integrate. There are over 600 children and young people living here who have access to work placements, training and sporting and leisure activities through a programme co-developed with the participants.
German courses and literacy courses are offered to young mothers with childcare available. The girls can also go swimming or go on excursions. The project is run with partner organisation KARUNA Zukunft für Kinder und Jugendliche International e.V. (KARUNA Future for Children and Adolescents International).
