The Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) at ZS in Frankfurt collected donations for Mädchenbüro, a local organization dedicated to bettering the lives of female youth, to commemorate International Women's Day.
The nonprofit center, located in the middle of Frankfurt, is a spot where young migrant girls can do their homework, have discussions together, cook, be creative, celebrate festivities and prepare for their futures. Mädchenbüro gave WLI the chance to visit their space for a tour to see how their donations were being put to good use.
The team met a few of the 45 girls who visit the center after school during their guided tour and learned about the impressive work they are doing to further improve the lives of these youth.
“We were deeply touched by their warm welcome and the awesome ‘Danke’ pictures they made for us as a thank you,” said Luisa, a member of ZS’s group dedicated to women.
WLI plans to continue to support the women-focused nonprofit in the future.
