In the near future we will continue to assist the school, plan garden updates in close consultation, give viewing workshops together, build shade roofs, support the school feeding program, cut fruit trees and hold confidence-building girls talks. However, two other major tasks lie ahead of us: The Go Beam Kindergarten with the Go Beam Academy and the vision of a worldwide “turning garden”.
There has been a persistent problem in Kalkfeld for years. This problem is the lack of kindergarten places for “the most vulnerable”. Many children live on the streets and get neither food nor education. So we see our task in further expanding the Go Beam kindergarten that was set up with Miss Mathilda !Kharuchas at the beginning of 2022. But not only the small children are on their own in Kalkfeld. Many young people who have finished school also have no job or future. In a “vision sharing meeting” we organized with a wide variety of people from the township at the beginning of 2021, we worked out that there is a great need for training and further education for young people. The future vision of Go Beam Academy was born, a multi-skills center where manual and technical skills can be passed on to the next generation under the direction of Miss !Kharuchas.
