RespAct like a champion!

In the last months we had three great events that addressed gender equality in sports and multiplier training.  

Urban Adventures – Year 3 

Boys are strong? Girls are flexible? Wait a minute! Let’s be atypical! Following this motto, we held a workshop for sports teachers about equality in sport education at the competitive sport centre Kienbaum. During the workshop, stereotypes about girls and boys were questioned and possibilities of integrative sport programmes were discussed. The workshop took place during a three-days training for 200 sports teachers organised by the Initiative Moderner Schulsport 

We had a lot of fun, learned a lot and are looking forward to next year! 

 

CamP Group at LEYLA RENNT 

LEYLA RENNT combines fun, exercises and sport! On September 7th the vent LEYLA RENNT, the annual sports festival for girls organised by Seitenwechsel e.V., took place and we were part of it with (sport) games about women in sports. We hosted a quiz that taught about female pioneers in equal rights in sport and an interactive parkour through which the girls could playfully question the prejudices about boys and girls in sport. 

 

A visit in Hamburg at Markt der Möglichkeiten 

On September 17th, we were guests at Teach First Germany and presented our concepts for project weeks at schools to the Teach First Fellows. Teach First sends university graduates from various fields of study as Fellows to focal point schools throughout Germany, where they support additional teachers and, with their diverse backgrounds, are particularly involved in transitions within the educational system. 

The Teach First Markt der Möglichkeiten brought together a variety of educational initiatives who presented their work to the Fellows. After a short pitch to RespAct, which ended with a short movement unit, many visitors gathered at the RespAct booth. We presented our handbooks and reported on our work at schools and in the field of multiplier training.

Launching the Girls Go Forward Project

In partnership with the Thope Foundation and their iSTEAM modules, and principals and sponsors at our schools, we began the Girls Go Forward Afterschool Clubs that was combined with the Boxgirls Maths and Sport Hubs. The girls enjoyed the combination of math, sports and the arts, which made for a dynamic experience.

  

First Holiday Club in Harare

Boxgirls was pleased to collaborate with a 3 primray schools for their first Holiday Club. We expanded on the initial Holiday Club model to include LEGO modules. We were so happy to see how engaged and curious the girls were in the technical side of the activities and share their learnings with others.

 

Standing for girls empowerment on Africa Day with CTV

In June, Boxgirls continued our community involvement on Africa Day. Because of our programming, Boxgirls was able to address a broader range of young people with our coverage on CTV! We were featured on the Ekse Youth Program for many to see and learn about what we do and the impact we have made thus far.

Half time - The first half-year 2019

Kids at the RespAct project week
Kids at the RespAct project week

It is RespAct - time!

Lisa-Tetzner primary school "Invigorating public space" The project started with a tour in which opportunities for improvement for the neighborhood were actively discussed among the pupils. During the mayor's role-playing game on the following day, the pupils distributed concrete suggestions for a more environmentally conscious neighborhood, so that on the last day some courageous people stepped into the limelight and presented their ideas with self-made videos.

Theodor Storm Primary School "Strengthening (Self)Trust" During the RespAct project week the students of class 5b took the time to find out more about themselves and others in order to strengthen both their own self-confidence and the cohesion of the class. Within the framework of a sports module, games were played to strengthen teamwork and cooperation. At the crowning finale, some of them stepped in front of the camera and practiced their roles as mayor and as a camera team.

Workshop Modern School Sport in Welcome Classes (March 2019) In the further education of modern school sport, the questions of how sport can be used to make it easier for children and young people to start school here in Berlin were addressed in workshop format. In addition, it was discussed how teachers can better master the special challenges in a welcome class through sport - different languages, different cultures and age groups, children and adolescents, some of whom have traumas. Games with teachers and pupils were carried out with enthusiasm in order to strengthen trust and respect.

RespAct Day (May 2019) The aim of the symposium was to provide participants with ideas and suggestions with which they can promote the respectful coexistence of children, adolescents and adults. After an exciting introduction in the form of a role play by the organizers, our employees presented the RespAct methodology and showed teachers, social workers and educators ideas on how they can playfully increase the self-efficacy of children and young people and contribute to a respActful coexistence.

RespActful greetings,

your Camp Group team
