Support for the Berlin-wide "Sprachwoche" ("Language Week")

The goal of the "Woche der Sprache und des Lesens" ("Language and Reading Week") held from September 1 – 9, 2012 was to promote the education of children and youths and to strengthen the sense of community among people from various backgrounds, religions and cultural circles. As the Fairchance Foundation has the same objectives, it was pleased to support the "Language Week" initiative.

"Sprich mit!"

The project "Sprich mit!" ("Join in the conversation!”") was developed by the young filmmakers Julia Moya and Christopher Zwickler of "Von Fiessbach Film" to help children with a non-German background get acquainted with the German language. The film aims at imparting the basics of German language – as the key to successful integration – to children with immigrant backgrounds. The film premiere on November 28, 2011 and the formal handover of the national license were made possible by the Fairchance Foundation, Biotronik and the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

KG and the Friends of the Square Kilometer. It will serve as location for youth job training programs on the Campus Rütli.
