Main aim of the charity

The main aim of the Indianerarbeit is to provide summercamps for children of prisoners. These children are innocent but still punished by the circumstances of the incarceration of their parents. It is not just about the absence of one or both parents but also about stigmatization they experience. The summercamps provide them a week of vacation beeing far away from their hard every day life. It is also about telling them that they are loved and valuable so they can develop healthy also their circumstances are not the best.

How the employee got involved and why

I learned about the charitable cause at an regional churchmeeting because they were looking for volunteers. I decided that I want to spend my freetime for this children to bring them some joy and hope in their partly realy hard everyday living.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Mainly I take part at the camps itslef to take care of the kids. But I also attend meetings on a regular base to get trained. The aim is to reach a hihg educational level also we are mainly volunteers and only a few professionals.
