ACTING WITH YOU
Theater Galli in Berlin is getting ready – the first play will be on stage in October. We have not set the dates yet, but of course we will let you know. It would be great to see you there! The play, written by Johannes Galli himself, is called “Trojas Trick” – because the HI-Virus is as tricky as the soldiers with the Trojan Horse. Besides the regular theater-audience, Theater Galli also offers to play for school classes as part of their sex-education lessons.
HIV IM DIALOG / RED-WALK
On 17.-18. Of September, there is a special event taking place in Berlins Townhall. On the 17th, HIV im Dialog, a congress for pharma-enterpreneurs doing research in the field of HIV medication is taking place. During day there will be some program – i-magine e.V. is participating and will provide two workshops for kids: one will be about being creative and designing their own T-Shirts. During the workshop there will be time for their questions about HIV. The second workshop is a theater workshop on the spot, together with Marion Martinez of Theater Galli. In that workshop, the kids can learn how to be strong and self-confident, and say no in situations they might say yes and then regret it. The RED-Walk is a Fashion show which aims to bring awareness about HIV. It will take place on 18th of September. In collaboration with Galeries Lafayette and ESMOD Berlin i-magine e.V. will present accessories made of condoms and therefore puts protection in the spotlight. It is gonna be an extraordinary show!
VISITING THE AMANI GROUP
Thanks to everybody who contributed a little bit for the Amani-Group in Kenya through betterplace. Waridis birthday was the perfect occasion to spread the word. Already 200 Euros have been collected! But we don’t want to stop there now.
Waridi is visiting the Amani-Group on 22.-29. of September and wants to come with good news: that the kids can continue going to school. The project “Amani-Group” on betterplace.org is still missing 1.000 Euros. Only when the amount is completed, betterplace.org will transfer the money to i-magine e.V. Everybody who can give a couple of Euros – please chip in. It doesn’t have to be much, if everybody gives something, then we can achieve that amount, too.
We got a donation from VENTANA Germany – a window company in Vreden. They have been supporting us for several years now and organized a public viewing during the world cup and a schlager festival. A part of the gains were used for a good cause: supporting i-magine e.V. in bringing awareness on HIV.
