Baue ein Kinderzentrum aus!


14.06. - 24.06.2020


8 Freiwillige inkl. Campleitung


The Agapedia foundation was founded by the German football manager and former player Juergen Klinsmann. The foundation develops projects that help children in need. In the town of Esslingen, it is running a children’s centre in which children between 6 and 12 years come for different activities, which aim at increasing childrens’ self-confidence and help them discover their potential. Activities include circus arts, cooking, crafts, music, sports and games. International volunteers have already helped out in the project in the previous year. By volunteering in this project you support the foundation in including more children in their program (SDG 11 sustainable communities).


The Agapedia children’s centre has become very popular in the last couple of years and wants to expand their space, so they can offer more activities to children. Therefore, they plan on converting the attic into a suitable and usable space for children. You will be helping with the extension of the building, which includes attaching insulation to the walls working with glue and screws, to smooth over the walls and paint them, as well as fixing the floor. In addition to working inside, there are also plenty of tasks outside to improve the garden. Among general painting works and other things, you will be renovating a small shed/hut in the garden. Make sure to bring clothes that can get dirty and sturdy shoes. Agapedia and the children will be excited to see the result of your work!


You will stay at the children’s centre itself and there’ll be plenty of space. Mats and camping beds for sleeping are provided, so you only need to bring a sleeping bag. In the centre you will have your own kitchen and sanitary facilities; there’s even a washing machine. Several supermarkets are very close-by and you can easily reach the city centre by foot.


Esslingen am Neckar is a town in southern Germany near Stuttgart, which is well known for its medieval historical centre with a lot of beautiful old buildings. It is home to the oldest sparkling wine cellar in Germany. The town has a lot of cultural activities to offer, such as museums, art galleries, theatre, and cinema. In addition, it is only a 15min tram ride away from Stuttgart, where you will find plenty of activities, for example you could visit the famous Mercedes or Porsche car museum. If you are more into outdoor activities, you could rent bikes and follow the beautiful bike trail along the river Neckar. There is also a swimming pool in Esslingen itself where you can cool off after a day of work.
