Children help children

Everyone can make a contribution. This is the lesson that teacher Panagiota Papakosta teaches her Greek class. For the third year in a row, her students have collected money for the SOS Children's Villages in Greece. In September she received a letter of thanks.

SOS Children's Villages is an association that works for children in need. It is active in 136 countries. There are 16 Children's Villages in Germany and four in Greece. There they take care of orphans and needy children.

Anne Katsouli from the SOS Children's Village Athens thanked in her letter to classes S1 and S3 of the past school year 2019/20. 450 euros were collected, donated by the pupils' pocket money. Mrs Papakosta is proud of so much European solidarity in her class and of the fact that the donation project was able to continue even during the Corona crisis.
