We have received an invitation by the Kenya Psychological Association to deliver a talk on the International Trauma-Conference with the title: "Traumatic Stress: A Threat to Health, Peace and Development in Africa". We wish to explain our innovative model for the training of Trauma-Assistants to the 500 conference guests which will be assembled. This constitutes a unique opportunity to multiply the effect of this approach and therefore touch on the lives of many people in need for better access to psychosocial services to alleviate trauma.Until end of July 2015 we may confirm our participation and urge you to make your contribution to this cause before this date.

This gives a total amount of €1,895 we need to raise to make this happen. Please help us by doanting and sharing this cause!
Yes, we did it! Six out of almost 20 social business ideas pitched at Alte Feuerwache Mannheim - and the jury faced the difficult task to decide which project would receive a scholarship for a 4week-Push-Session in the Startup Lab Berlin.
I was impressed by how much creativity and passion was taken to stage that night. Sometimes you can get the feeling to swim alone when you stand up for a good cause. Last night truly made a difference for us. We, that means me (Matthias Behrends), Carina Maier (Project Intern) and Nirvana Rose (FacePainting Artist) who supported the project on-site. The traditional Indian dancer Shany Sara Mathew was with us in spirit and through her supporting message in our presentation.
