THE PROJECT JUSTINE
FUTURE THROUGH EDUCATION
The association has the goal to establish a training and cultural center in Benin, West Africa. Following the example of the namesake Justine Tchilalou Payarou young people there should receive a comprehensive vocational training which enables them to take care of themselves and pass on their skills to others. Initially a tailoring apprenticeship will be offered, later on other disciplines will be added. In the first step the non-profit association "The Project Justine - Train the trainer e.V." was founded. With the help of funds from a charity gala in the GOP Varieté Theater in Munich, the property on which the training center will soon be located has already been acquired. In addition, a cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Biberach was initiated. The professor of architecture Felix Schürmann and his students support the project with their expertise and have already completed the first drafts for the training center. The foundation stone has been laid.
