GlobalGiving Report 2
kinderhände – children’s hands
The year 2018 started with a new edition of the parent-children-café in January and February (a total of 8 cafés (picture 1). In March the new semester started with 10 classes for babies and children starting from 6 months up to 8 years. One young participant even attended her 9th semester with us!
The year also started with charity activities for kinderhaende. First, the famous Tobias Faulhammer Quartett with special guest Thomas Faulhammer played on February 22nd at the Jazzland Vienna (picture 2). Second, together with our cooperation partner the pharmacy store Marien-Apotheke we produced a special post card which displays three signs: GEMEINSAM BARRIEREN ABBAUEN (reducing barriers together) (picture 3).
For Easter we offered special Easterbunny-sets with our learning materials, buttons, postcards and ballons which were sold in our center and also sent to families throughout Austria and Germany (picture 3).
