Jugendkulturarbeit e. V.
Southern Africa Development, research and training institute (SADRAT Institute)
In einem Theaterjugendaustausch werden Jugendliche im Alter von 15 bis 20 Jahren aus eher prekären Verhältnissen (15 aus Südafrika und 15 aus Deutschland) zwei Mal zusammen arbeiten und leben. Sie entwickeln unter theaterpädagogischer Leitung Theaterstücke um den Themenkreis Frauenrechte, Frauenbildung und Genderfragen in Südafrika und Deutschland zu behandeln. Ein Stück wird zunächst in Deutschland, dann ein Zweites in Südafrika gezeigt. Die Begegnungen werden durch mehrere Begleittreffen und Skype-Konferenzen zwischen den Teilnehmenden und den Teamenden vor- und nachbereitet.
Closing the gap - Join hands to empower girls and young women to stop violence and reach equality
01.01.2020 - 31.12.2021
Pfadfinderinnenwerk St. Georg e. V.
Rwanda Girl Guides/ Association des Guides du Rwanda
This exchange programme between the Guiding organizations in Germany and Rwanda will use the Voices against Violence curriculum, an international non-formal co-educational curriculum which engages girls, young women, boys, young men, adults, parents and the community in conversations about violence. The initiative is unique in that it addresses the root causes of violence against girls and sets the groundwork for real social change. The project participants will receive training, exchange on the problems in the two countries and create creative content in order to inform other members of their community on the other country, work on creative and practical ideas how to empower girls and young women and work on creating safe spaces in their communities together. It will have empowered participants to be leaders, to speak out and take action. The participants will be able to work with other young people during and after the project.
It is expected that the curriculum will help girl guides participants and indirect beneficiaries learn how to talk about violence, understand its root causes, identify different forms of violence, recognize their rights and develop the skills and confidence to access those rights for themselves and others.
Exchanges will start as virtual encounters due to the corona pandemic. The participants are supposed to connect via social media and messenger services throughout the project and form small bi-national working groups in order to intensify the exchange and create common project ideas.
