The Schilleria Girl´s Café is addressed at girls and young women, most of whom have a migrant background and are socially and educationally disadvantaged.
Due to the increasing success of right-wing parties and Europe-wide discrimination of Muslims, the girls involved urgently demanded to talk more intensively about political topics. The project “PolitTalk” therefore took the opportunity of the parliamentary elections to inform those interested about political topics and to motivate them further for the under-18 (U 18) elections.
The project combined political education and empowerment. Participants received training in communication and networking skills. Talks on political parties and the voting system were followed by creative workshops and the election event itself. Local schools and youth clubs were invited.
The action is implemented by the organisation Madonna Mädchenkult.Ur e.V. who will also evaluate it. It is financed through the European Social Fund and funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety in the framework of the programme “Jugend stärken im Quartier”.
