Blackeight assumes responsibility

Also this year the team from Blackeight is committed to helping children in need. Together with »Connect minds4change«, we will help thirty children from Manila return to school next year.

Connect minds4change´s goal is to give disadvantaged children access to better education and with that a new life perspective. Next to building small libraries in remote villages and furnishing self-mounted solar cookers, the work focuses primarily on returning street kids into the school system long term.

What does Connect minds4change´s work in Manila look like exactly?
Volunteer teachers in Manila give children daily lessons right on the street, at the same time and at the same place. Straightforward and without complications. For some children, this access to education is their first in years. In the beginning each lesson usually lasts less than two hours per day, later even longer. Yet every hour is important for the way back into the school system. In the following years, on-site education will be crucial for their continuing journey through life.
With its work in Manila, the organization strives to…
…identify obstacles impacting school attendance
…re-establish routine playfully
…promote interest on school and knowledge
…create prerequisites to re-enable school attendance again
The volunteers from Connect minds4change have not only built a trustworthy and secure contact-point, but have also established the conditions for long-term school attendance.

Who is behind Connect minds4change?
Franziska Bammert initially founded Connect minds4change with friends in Munich. Supporters came swiftly from all over the world — from US book donations and pan-European volunteers from all over Europe, to native Filipinos and Filipinas who play an important role on-site. The focus is to understand what is really needed in order to create useful and sustainable projects. Direct on-site aid and personal exchange is in many aspects possible and for Franziska Bammert desirable.
