Asha Frankfurt volunteers share about their “Theatre for Social Empowerment, Social Inclusion, and Social Change” project idea, which was submitted as an idea to GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeiten), a German government-funded organization that supports developmental projects every year in various countries for the upliftment of weaker sections of society
With this project, the Asha Frankfurt chapter wanted to engage closely with communities, especially the children and youth between the ages of 12-18, using a methodology involving the performative arts. They believed that this would enable the communities to engage and integrate with mainstream society, as well as uplift their confidence and lifestyle.
The Asha Frankfurt project was selected by GIZ in February 2020 with an approved budget of 40k euros and a project timeline of September 2020 – March 2022.
