Activity description

Further, we want to meet them with God´s love and give them the opportunity to get to know Christianity. Our work has different areas: sports, playing games, music, spending time with the students but also organization and logistics. The school club includes a small café opened during breaks and after lessons partly up to the evening. Every Friday we meet to do some more sports, cook and have dinner and devotion together.
