BÖHME & WEIHS SUPPORTS THE CHILDREN’S AND YOUTH FARM IN WUPPERTAL
Böhme & Weihs has donated 2000 € to the children’s and youth farm in the Sonnborn area of Wuppertal to purchase a horse-drawn carriage. On the one hand, this carriage serves to exercise the horses which have to be regularly put to work and kept in training. On the other, it fits in well with the educational concept of the farm which aims to encourage children and young people to approach nature and animals and teach them how to treat these in a responsible manner.
The children’s and youth farm in Wuppertal is a recognized institution for open child and youth work with a range of open and free services targeting an age group of between 6 and 26. The central point around which everything else revolves is the work with the animals – the element that connects up common interests in order to integrate visitors from a variety of different social and cultural backgrounds and promote social competence and democratic conduct.
