Logrando mis Metas (Meine Ziele verwirklichen) Peru 2015
Das Ziel des Workshops war die Förderung von Menschen mit Behinderung. Viele Kinder mit Behinderungen befinden sich in prekären Lebenslagen und sind häufig unter miserablen und menschenunwürdigen Umständen in ihren Familien untergebracht. Sie werden häufig aus Scham von der Außenwelt abgeschottet. Einigen Familien sind von dem Glauben überzeugt, dass das Kind von Dämonen besetzt sei. Aus diesem Grund wollten wir in diesem Bereich unterstützen.
Siendo nosotras mismas (Wir selbst sein) - Peru 2017
In Peru, empowerment workshops on the issues of domestic violence and femicide were held in June 2017. They targeted women of indigenous origin in the Amarilis Huánuco district.
We trained them to become community multipliers for women's rights and explained how they can help women who are victims of domestic violence. The participants were familiarized with some psychological guidelines and we guided them to implement prevention measures.

Within the framework of the climate camp in Germany, we organized workshops for about 70 people in 2019 on the threatened rights of the indigenous population in the Amazon region.
