New Hope and Light is a charitable organization that pursues the goal of establishing sustainability as overriding principle in all areas of human activity. Our commitment in the field of sustainability promotes a more differentiated understanding by means of educational work, both in Germany and in African countries.
The contents of our educational offers address children and teenagers, who are to playfully and actively learn, how relevant the issue of sustainability is in the fields of technology, economics and culture and in the global context.
Our longstanding and successful cooperation with various project partners enables us to draw on the resources of manifold offers and wide-ranging materials for experimenting.
With our educational offers, we want to highlight the consequences which our consumption of commodities has for people in the Global South. The educational concept of “global learning” enables global interrelationships to be recognized and connections to be established between our local life and the lives of people in the Global South.
We carry out in-country educational projects with global learning events in order to promote global justice and sustainable environmental education by more aware and sustainable conduct. Abroad, we promote sustainable projects which are implemented in cooperative development collaboration with interested Southern partners. Project fields include, amongst others, education, health, human rights, gender, agriculture, communal development, business development, energy and sustainable environmental education. Our practical experience enables us to provide a diverse range of offers in the field of energy education:
We work inclusively, which means that the learning contents are prepared in a differentiated manner such that the participants’ abilities are adequately challenged, but not overtaxed. This differentiation in terms of content and method ensures that everything conforms to the various needs of the participants. The workshop materials are always adapted subject-specifically and to suit the participants’ age by our qualified speakers.
In our projects, we seek to address outdated clichés and role models. Accordingly, it is our heartfelt desire to create new perspectives and highlight ways of mutual interaction. For the STEM field (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), this entails motivating young women and girls to exploit their talents and supporting them in their endeavor to pursue goals. in these fields.
