Initiative „A place to grow“
Our initiative „A place to grow“ wants to give a voice to children without a home.
Goar B wrote the song „A place to grow“, which describes the serious situation of children who have lost their homes.
Through performances of the song, where local and refugee children sing together on the stage, we want to stand up for more heart and understanding of the cultures.
In Weilheim we are launching a project beyond this song in which we bring German and refugee children together for singing and making music on a regular basis.
The children are to be given the opportunity to sing and play fun and music of all cultures every 14 days. It is particularly important for us to develop mutual understanding and friendships between the children.
The project in Weilheim is intended as an example to be imitated in other cities as a contribution to integration through music.
