A Kompass Organisation’s boat has big damages on its keel. To be able to again sail out on Baltic Sea it needs a new steel and a welder!

Kompass Organisation for years works with young offenders, who instead of imprisonment have chance to work non-profit for the public.

Our place of work is a well equipped with tools workshop located in Rostock. However, during this particular project the object and in the same time the place of work is mostly an old sailing yacht. In the last years we have devoted a lot of time and efforts to restore the boat e.g. to service an engine, to redevelop the equipment and furnishings and to repair the damage on a hull.

We are proud of work, that we have done so far. The goal, which we would like to achieve, requires a long- term process in which participants have to be constantly involved.
Unfortunately recently, while working on the boat, we figured out, that a bottom part of our boat is covered with rust. We cannot afford to solve this problem, therefore we would like to ask You for donation.

Our aim is to enable young men to continue working on the boat. Thanks to that not only can they keep working together but also, by having common goal and perspective to achieve, they can focus on it and forget for a while about their worries and troubles.
What is more, we believe that when the boat will sail out again on the Baltic See it will be a great motivation for them and their future lives! In addition sailing is not only a sport but also a way of personal development and it is beneficial for building and/or strengthening of characters!
