Conclude gets involved

Little Bugs, Namibia
The right to education is a basic human right. Out in the Namib desert, 170 kilometres away from the next town and public school, this human right, however, is often hard to implement. “Little Bugs”, a free early childhood development centre and lower primary school, has been created to provide the disadvantaged children of the region’s ever-growing community with quality education and well-balanced nutrition, preparing them for a better start in life.

Kinderhospiz Burgholz, Germany
Already from the day of the diagnosis of a life-shortening illness, the Kinderhospiz Burgholz (children’s and adolescent hospice in Burgholz) offers advice and assistance to the families. Our house not only is a place of grief and farewell, but also a place of beautiful and happy moments. Moments that provide happy memories even beyond death. The Children’s Hospice Foundation Bergisches Land is a dedicated consortium of Caritas Association Wuppertal/Solingen and Diakonie Wuppertal.

Kindertal e.V., Germany
Kindertal e.V. financially supports children and adolescents in Wuppertal, who live in poverty or close to the poverty line. Mostly providing individual support, the association also supports other projects that are of benefit to poor children in Wuppertal. Kindertal e.V. funds its support for children and adolescents from donations, which are completely spent for the association’s purpose, i.e. every donated cent reaches the children in need. This is made possible because Caritas, Diakonie, Sparkasse and Radio Wuppertal provide necessary administrative support free of charge. And every year, a large auditing company in Wuppertal reviews the accounts of Kindertal without charge.

Back to Life e.V. – Helping those in Nepal and India help themselves
Back to Life e.V. supports and promotes the improvement of the living conditions of disadvantaged people, currently in India and Nepal, by providing development aid designed to help the people help themselves. The projects are selected, initiated and brought to life by founder Stella Deetjen, who has been helping disadvantaged people, especially children, abroad since 1996. This is followed by the phase where the project leaders and partners supervise the projects, ultimately designed to result in self-determination and independence for the local population.

Wuppertaler Tafel, Germany
The Wuppertaler Tafel (Food Bank Wuppertal) makes sure that nobody goes hungry in Wuppertal. First, it collected food and unbureaucratically distributed it to the people in need. Meanwhile, the work of the Food Bank has become more varied: it now provides several hot meals each day; does the rounds in the social aid van; provides people in need with food in the food bank; supervises children in the children's food bank; provides medical treatment in the medical van as well as clothing, household goods and furniture in the social store; maintains a book shop with a massive selection of genres; and much more.

Wuppertaler Förderverein Schulmittagessen e.V., Germany
The Wuppertaler Förderverein Schulmittagessen e.V. (Association for the Promotion of School Meals in Wuppertal) supports schoolchildren whose parents' income is too low for them to afford a hot meal at lunchtime. The association was founded in 2005 on the initiative of the mayor and the interest group of all-day schooling in Wuppertal. The reason: the budget oversight committee revoked its consent to the town subsidising school lunches for needy children in all-day schools, which had been common practice until 2005.

Förderverein Junior Uni Wuppertal, Germany
Children are our future. Giving them the chance to build an existence that they can determine themselves in this globalised world is a challenge, opportunity and duty – especially in Wuppertal and the Bergisches Land to not only follow the change, but to actively and constructively help shape it. The most important thing we can pass on to children is knowledge, particularly knowledge of how to study independently. The best and easiest way for them to acquire this know-how is by enjoying learning. If they experience this joy at an early age already, they will be optimally equipped for future challenges and lifelong learning.
