Make dreams come true: Child and youth facilities and Safe-Hub Berlin receive donations
The generous donation goes to WKK development projects in Berlin’s children and youth facilities and in particular to the Safe-Hub education and sports campus, which the non-profit organization AMANDLA runs together with the Oliver Kahn Foundation and Knorr-Bremse Global Care e. V. in Berlin- Wedding. “Our sports field can be opened in late autumn this year,” says Jakob Schlichtig, managing partner of AMANDLA. “In that way, we create a place in the long term where structurally vulnerable children and young people are supported holistically.” Oliver Kahn of the Oliver Kahn Foundation adds: “We give young people values and social skills to take with them through the power of sport.” The football education developed by the foundation gives young people the opportunity to develop their potential in a safe environment. “We awaken their skills that are relevant to the labor market so that they can realize their dreams,” says Oliver Kahn.
100 percent of the donation goes to vulnerable children and young people

Visibly impressed, he thanked his approximately 200 employees and business partners for the great event and their extraordinary willingness to donate in his function as chairman of the association: “Every euro donated today is a direct contribution to equal opportunities in Germany and strengthens the basic idea of ’ Business can children’ as a platform for entrepreneurs who want to get involved. The social focus of our summer party shows once again how important the association’s strong support is to CG Elementum AG.” 100 percent of all donations go to the vulnerable children and young people, as the association’s entire operating expenses are covered by sponsorships.
