Our work in Germany
When we founded Agapedia in 1995, it was important for Jürgen Klinsmann to not only help children abroad but to also support children in his home region. Esslingen on the Neckar river was the perfect starting location. According to the town's youth welfare program, around 1,500 children live in the town center, many of whom spend their spare time in the streets. Establishing a children's center for ages six to twelve was our idea of creating a small, positive world in which children feel at home. It is a space for children to realize their potentials, practice social behavior as well as intercultural learning. They also learn how to cope with their own weaknesses.
