WE WORK WITH:
Every Friday, we bring our workshops to this shelter in Spandau with the collaboration of Berliner Stadtmission and their social workers. This center is located in an old, empty tobacco factory.
We go to this center each Tuesday to spend 2 hours with the children. People who escaped war zones in Syria, Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq live here and have their own private rooms. It used to be a town hall. This shelter closed down in December 2017.
Every Saturday afternoon our volunteers organize workshops for teenagers. This center is quite new and is part of the Stiftung Unionhilfswerk Berlin.
Vostel makes volunteering easy and fun for everyone who wants to get involved in social, cultural and ecological projects – no matter what language one speaks, how much time one has or what skills one has to brings.
Studio Brique are two young graphic designers who share the same desire to simplify the creative process and build expression spaces open to everyone through participatory publishing workshops. Today, they want to highlight human links and participatory creation into their graphic praxis. Studio Brique and PTC do some collaboration work, for example, we regularly work on visual graphics to handmade things such as flyers, posters.

PARITÄTISCHEN WOHLFAHRTSVERBANDES LV BERLIN E.V. & THE SENATSVERWALTUNG FÜR INTEGRATION, ARBEIT UND SOZIALES
We received funds from the ressources of the "Senatsverwaltung für Intergration, Arbeit und Soziales" through the contest organized by the "Paritätische Berlin".
"Our mission is to raise money for socially and environmentally sustainable projects, promote their valuable work and encourage new initiatives."
With the money from the lottery, Aktion Mensch promotes projects for people with disabilities, children and young people - up to 1,000 projects a month. Since its inception, Aktion Mensch has given around 4 billion euros to projects.
We would also like to acknowledge everyone who has participated in our workshops, people who have donated time, material or money, people who supported our project and gave us contacts or advice on how to make it grow. We feel extremely grateful as without all of this, we would not have been able to make the work of Pass the Crayon happen.
