By teaching martial arts (Muay Thai) to children in a special area of Hamburg the violence, crime and drug consumption should be reduced there.
The idea is to work with children in the age between 7 and 14 years. In modern societies the fundaments of young characters are created already at that age and it becomes crucial to help them with their development.
If we consider that some of the schools in Hamburg have even more than 80% of children with immigration background this work is definitely getting important as well as to support the integration of those children into German society.
“This project is meant to be a long term project as its results can be seen after a few years. And the best result is helping these young children to become respectful and respected members of the society. That’s what we want to do.” that’s how Darko Pavic, board member of Service Plus Group describes the target of this project. Darko will run the Muay Thai trainings.
The project is implemented by “Bildungshaus Lurup” (https://www.kita-moorwisch.de/), a social facility with kindergarden, primary school and other special social projects for socially deprived families.
As main sponsor for all needed equipment for the beginning of the project we were able to win “Kwon“. „Kwon“ is a very successful German manufacturer and distributor of high quality martial arts equipment.
In order to start the project we bought equipment for around 1000 Euro.
Working with children and creating new perspectives for them is the most important work to create a better future for all of us.
