Children for Tomorrow wins first place at the Hamburg Foundation Prize!


Children for Tomorrow wins first place at the Hamburg Foundation Prize!

Our “HonigHelden” project was awarded first place at the Hamburg Foundation Prize yesterday evening in the town hall! The foundation award is endowed with 10,000 euros. First Mayor Dr. Peter Tschentscher and Justice Senator Anna Gallina praised the innovative idea of ​​the project:

First Mayor Dr. Peter Tschentscher: “Children for Tomorrow supports elementary school children with traumatic flight experiences. The foundation gives them support for a good start in a new life. I would like to thank you very much for this important commitment and I congratulate Children for Tomorrow on the Hamburg Foundation Prize 2021. “

Justice Senator Anna Gallina: “Children and young people had and still have a particularly difficult time during the corona pandemic. The Board of Trustees therefore selected three foundations this year, each with a different focus on the younger and the youngest. Children for Tomorrow takes care of the most vulnerable in our society: traumatized children who would otherwise be excluded from help. This is a successful example of practical and sustainable idealistic volunteering.”

In our project we offer primary school children, who are traumatized by war and flight, psychotherapy on site in schools. The help offered at  school can reach children who would otherwise fall through the supply network. Parents and teachers are also involved in the therapy process. We would like to expand with the project in the future and achieve cooperation with resident psychotherapists throughout the city.
