Set up in 2007, Building Bridges is now in its 10th year – another record year, with 72 projects, 56 welfare organisations, 65 companies and 3,500 hours of commitment that will directly benefit people. Among the helpers are employees and trainees of PRO ASS, one of the companies of the BMA Group. In collaboration with other Braunschweig businesses, the playground of the Broitzem nursery school was refurbished – with active support from the nursery children.
Now the new sandpit invites girls and boys to explore and dig. The playhouse has had a makeover, it looks shiny and new. Mukhtar Adam, a 22-year old trainee at BMA, is happy with what has been achieved. Since arriving from Sudan as a refugee, he has been training as a machinist. With his participation in the day of action, Mukhtar has helped to build bridges – between refugees and the local German community.
