Student Help Lives (SHL) are Germany's largest aid organization managed by young people. In five Southeast European countries as well as in Jordan, we carry out youth, education, and reconciliation work for children and adolescents. In Germany, we encourage civic engagement and inform about problems of young people in the Balkans and the Middle East.
Our Vision: All children and young people enjoy equal access to education, lead a life free from poverty and discrimination and engage actively for the benefit of their society. By ourselves we cannot realize this vision. But: If pupils of different ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina establish a joint student council, if Roma children from extremely poor neighborhoods are able to attend secondary school, if disillusioned young people without vocational training recognise and facilitate their talents, if bored and frustrated youths find a place to learn, to play and simply be youthful, then we have achieved our goal and, thus, come one step closer to realizing our vision.
