Herbert Eichholzer Awards 2015

Children of migrants and refugees in particular are suffering in already difficult living situations. In order to provide these children with opportunities to learn, Caritas has set up learning cafes that the children can come visit. In addition, a “RETHINK SCHOOLBUS – Learning in the Truck” learning room is to be designed that comes to the children itself. It is planned to be a semi-trailer for which a corresponding extension with room for 30 – 40 people will be developed.
