About us Unfortunately, children with a migration background are far too often left speechless and fall by the wayside at school. With our support we want to help these children to overcome language barriers. We want these children and young people to develop a positive relationship with the German language and learn to use it creatively, confidently and safely. Our initiative was inspired by the American project “826 Valencia” by the American author Dave Eggers. More information about the author’s work with immigrant children can be found here. Since its foundation in 2010, the project HD Ink – Ideas on Paper! has been extremely popular. Over 90 children have already been cared for and supported by our dedicated volunteer tutors. The children and young people come from different parts of the world: Rwanda, Russia, Tunisia, Albania and Turkey are just a few examples of this diversity of nations. In cooperation with schools in the region, we soon learned that strengthening language skills is important for all children. We have recognized the enthusiasm with which children are involved when they are allowed to write their own works under guidance and thereby give free rein to their creativity and imagination. Therefore we have extended our offer and now offer writing workshops for all children and teenagers.
