ghettokids – Soziale Projekte e.V.
„All children need affection, appreciation, dignity, education, perspectives and most of all hope.”
(Susanne Korbmacher, founder)
Many children right in front of our door step live an unnoticed life with little to no perspective for the future. Most of them come from other parts of the world and were abused, neglected or unrooted at some point in their lives. Susanne Korbmacher, founder of the Munich based non-profit organization ghettokids – Soziale Projekte e.V., tries to make them visible. Since more than 20 years she works with children and young adults from Turkey, Greece, Albania and the Kosovo, who often have learning difficulties, are maladjusted or even violent due to their personal fate.
Setting up an extraordinary program the organization works against the emotional and social collapse of those young people. The diverse program offers drum lessons and dance workshops, music classes and a rapping-writing workshop, theatre projects, mediation courses, German lessons and educational tours. 400 children actively participate in these programs every year.
Since October 2017 we are paying the rent for a space in Munich, where the organization can hold their various activities and create a base that is always open for the children and youths. This costs 1300 Euros per month. A useful investments because the kids truly need a space that allows to make common experiences through dancing, singing, theatre playing, drumming and making music – and this is the base for harmony, understanding and togetherness to arise.
