We have been supporting this project since 1985 with a total contribution of around EUR 375,000.

The Rexroth Foundation pays for the required medication and, on the social services side, concentrates its aid on the homecrafts school which trains 80 young women per year.

At the end of the course, each student receives a sewing machine to help support her family by taking in sewing jobs.

A total of EUR 0.7 Mio. has been donated for this project.
