Schilf-Projekt

Schilf-Projekt (school aid project) is committed to enabling children to go to school regardless of their origin. Even if it is difficult to imagine in Germany, there are still many millions of children worldwide who cannot go to school.

The Schilf-Projekt was originally started by a group of students. The project started years ago in Indonesia when these students were volunteering on site and building a close relationship with the school. This school was very important to them, so they wanted to support and promote it.

As a result of great demand and social necessity, it was decided at the beginning of 2019 to found a registered association from a pure project. This founding meeting took place on May 11th, 2019.

Our association consists exclusively of honorary members. Through this structure, minus any transfer costs and administrative costs, 97% of the donations go directly to our projects. Here you can find out more about the division of donations.

Current project

Bintang Timur School (Indonesia)

Bintang Timur School is a primary school in the south of Bali, which was founded in 2013 by the headmistress Susan Setiawan.

With a manageable number of 30 students, she began with the help of two other teachers to enable children from socially and financially disadvantaged families to go to school. The number of students increases every year, which is why the school is constantly expanding.

The school concept includes a crawling group, a two-year preparation in preschool so that the students can then successfully attend primary school from 1st to 6th grade.

It is not without reason that the right to education is a human right according to Paragraph 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations and at the same time in Article 28 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Give the children the opportunity to get an education and to lead an independent life in the future. Help us and support our project!
