Belyse Uwamahoro is sharing for one year the rural life of the Uhlenhoff community
The self-concept of societies can be appreciated with their ability to give access to social and economical participation to those in need of support. Living together with people with physical or mental disabilities and participating in social processes is a challenge in societies worldwide. Concepts within Germany are differing and between the different countries as well. For those convinced working as staff member in institutions where handicapped people are getting support it is a strong impulse to think in how far concepts are ready to be transferred to Africa.
The institution is organized around an old farmhouse complex in the rural surrounding of Kiel. It is necessary that participants like to arrange with rural life in Germany and the special culture of staying at the country side.
