StickYourNeckOut!

With this podcast we give our community the opportunity to get to know the Giraffe Heroes behind the foundation better by gaining deeper insight into their work. Thus you will have an opportunity of a direct encounter with these personalities sticking their necks out for the common good, fighting for the social issues that matter: justice, freedom, our environment. In our podcast, commended Giraffes are talking with us about the issues that count most for them and which drive them “To Stick their Necks Out” for our common good. We offer you a direct and often very personal "look" behind the scenes of their day to day activities. What made them start fighting for their local communities? How did they manage to cope with and overcome resistance? And yes, what concerns them and which dangers do they perceive as threatening the success of their struggle? Be inspired and have fun!

episode 28: To fly like bats


Accompanying blind children on their way to independence

kanthari alumni Anja Pfaffenzeller started 2013 the Project "Bats in Action" in Sobral, a town in the north-east of Brazil. She realised how much blind people in Brazil are excluded from education and decided to get involved. She wanted the brasilian blind kids to fly like bats, to manage their own way. In todays podcast Anja tells us in a very honest, yet reflected way about her experience of realising a project for blind children in Brazil. At the same time, we’re talking about what challenges to face back in Germany when it comes down to building a life and also trying to realise ideas. Which hurdles to face, be it in Brazil, be it in Germany.
