Malteser satt & schlau

Main aim of the charity

satt & schlau is a social project of Malteser in the city of Cologne, which takes care of the education and training of primary school children from socially difficult backgrounds. Care is provided from Monday to Thursday after school from 12 noon to 4 pm. The supervision ratio is outstanding: two full-time employees and one volunteer support a maximum of ten children in a group. The focus is on homework supervision, learning assistance and creative activities. The children also receive social skills, motivation and, above all, a lot of affection along the way. A joint hot lunch is also provided by satt & schlau.

How the employee got involved and why

For two years I have been the organizer of a golf tournament series in NRW. At the tournaments, we always collect donations for the Malteser "satt & schlau" campaign. At the end of each season, we then donate the money collected.

What work does the employee do for charity

On November 5, I baked waffles with a friend during a golf tournament. The participants of the tournament could eat waffles at the halfway house and donate an amount of their choice. Already at 7 o'clock in the morning I finished the dough in the kitchen. Getting up early was worth it.
