Partner*innen über Grenzen has emerged from Gesamtschule Mitte and continues to work closely with it. The GSM is a UNESCO project school. In May 2020, the German UNESCO project schools started the WE ARE GLOBAL CITIZENS project, in which international communication on Covid-19 is initiated by means of questions. We support this and ask our partners* in Kenya, the DR Congo and Mali to participate. And of course the answers are also asked from the German side.

A series of images that are depicting the story of humanity and togetherness. heroes and organisations of Mathare slum who are risking their lives by going to the most disadvantaged places to feed those who dont have food during the COVID 19 lockdown. Local youth volunteers  identify most vulnerable persons in their neighborhood and collect contacts. On the day of distribution they contact them to come to the nearest shops in the slums and get foodstuff, mask and sanitizers donated.
