A trip to the farm

Project No.: 2018 – BIN – 001

A trip to the farm – for many children a possible highlight of the summer or autumn holidays. And others can only dream about it because of the lack of financial resources. The education network Mainz (BiNe Mainz) would like to change this, would like to fulfil the dream of these children. The farm of the Lenhardt family in Dreieich at Offenbach was chosen as a destination because of the wish of some refugee children who could not attend the visit last year. The Juvente Foundation, the refugee home institution and long-standing cooperation partner of the education network, had offered this excursion with a very positive response at that time, but in the following period entrusted the planning of these excursions to the BiNe e.V. This excursion should take place again this year, in the fourth quarter of 2018 – ideally in the harvest season, which is also a school subject in the primary school at the same time. If the excursion can not take place on a working day in the autumn holidays, a Saturday is planned.

The farm of the family Lenhardt (see: https://www.lenhardtshofladeneis.de/) is a family-run farm in the Frankfurt area. Children are given the opportunity to visit the stables and fields, to get acquainted with the processing of milk in the farm shop and in the courtyard café, and to romp about on the wide-spread terrain. Also horses or pony rides are offered. Especially for children, the farm is a very interesting destination.

The trip is planned for 30 primary school pupils (8 pupils from the shared accommodation of Bretzenheimer Straße and 22 pupils from the shared accommodation in the Zwerchallee). In addition, 8 supervisors from our projects should take part in the excursion, which will address the children in advance on the planned trip, select children together with the social workers and support the parents in completing their consent form. The carers pick up the children and bring them home in the evening.

The budget target is 700 €. Donation for the trip to the farm to fulfil dreams.
