Volunteering in Geislingen an der Steige: ESC Volunteers at K19 Herzenssache Kinderhaus 2023


Date start: 01 Oct 2023

Date end: 31 Aug 2024

The „K19“ is Agapedia’s latest project which opened in December 2019 and is still under construction. Every day at the German Agapedia Children's Centre „K19 Herzenssache Kinderhaus“, 40 to 80 children aged six to twelve learn how to use their spare time sensibly. These children learn how to be self-confidence, to cooperate and to make decisions through sports, crafting, games and relationship-building guidance. We combine open social work for children with obligatory workshops in areas such as sport, arts, crafts and music to help children realize and tap their full potential. It is our main focus to actively involve the children in decision-making processes and to adapt our program to their needs. In addition to the daily activities, „K19“ would also like to offer special thematic holidays programs. Some of the children’s parents stay in the parent’s area while the children spend their time in the „K19“ to get to know other parents and to get in touch.
