What We Support

Project Insights

The goal of our public relations work is to make our current activities and exemplary projects more visible. That’s why the people and initiatives that we support take center stage, both in our print publications and on our website. Lighthouse projects both large and small are given a special place.

Here, we provide short updates that reveal current happenings among our projects. In addition, we present in-depth reports and interviews that create a vivid picture of the initiatives that our foundation is privileged to enable and support.

To make this possible, our public relations team visits many of the projects together with the responsible project managers and gets to know the organizations and people on location.

We hope that these reports, in text and image, help to orient engaged individuals regarding possible support from the Software AG Foundation (SAGST) – and encourage them to tread new paths.

Mütter spielen auf Decken im Garten mit ihren Kleinkindern

Day to day life with small children can be challenging – and can raise many questions for parents. That’s why exchange and communication with other families is so important. Sometimes a bit of professional assistance can help, as well. Both are available at the drop-in parent-child group at the Women’s and Family Center SzenenWechsel (“Change of Scenery”) in Seeheim-Jugenheim.

Covid-19 is also a major test for non-profit initiatives worldwide. In close contact with its project partners, SAGST is endeavouring to provide them with additional resources during these difficult times.

Jungen und Mädchen laufen fröhlich spielend über den Schulhof

In Georgia, access to education and health is often difficult for people with disabilities. The number of government facilities is low and mainly geared to the needs of adults. The Centre of Free Pedagogy in Tbilisi supports children and adolescents in need of special care holistically in their development and enables them to participate fully in society.

Tuch-Gymnastik: Seniorinnen in Bewegung

For many seniors, in addition to stable health, a familiar environment and social contacts are crucial to living fulfilling and autonomous later years. These elements are increasingly less provided within families, but instead by people in the neighbourhood as parents and children often now live far away from each other. In this context, civic involvement, such as that provided by the neighbourhood association Nachbarschaftsheim Darmstadt e. V. for more than 70 years, is of growing importance.

Mädchen und Junge mit Eurythmiestab

Even in Waldorf kindergartens, eurythmy is part of the pedagogical concept. Fairy tales and short stories help the children to immerse themselves in the group movements, explains the experienced eurythmist Iris Fischer.
