3. Project work 3.1 The principles of the project – “Education overcomes poverty” The emphasis of “Jugend Eine Welt” lies in the support of social- and education projects of the Salesians and the Don Bosco sisters all over the world. The projects supported by “Jugend Eine Welt” are planned and carried out independently by the project partners on the spot. Project applications that come into “Jugend Eine Welt” are selected and dealt with in cooperation with the power of attorney for missions. Since “Jugend Eine Welt” has limited funds at its disposal, not all incoming projects can be sponsored. Therefore the association tries to pass on applications to other organisations or sponsors and arranges projects also for private groups as well as clerical and governmental authorities. Projects, which are already sponsored by “Jugend Eine Welt” or are settled in program countries of the Austrian Development Cooperation, are prioritized. For new projects continuity and possibility of networking with other campaigns of “Jugend Eine Welt” (volunteer service for example) and the Don Bosco Network are especially important. Care centres for street children, vocational education centres, training workshops, youth centres as well as family support programs and activities for the protection of children and women are supported. The most important sponsorship guidelines: The project has to deal with a problem, which is of importance for many children and adolescents of both genders and serve the welfare of poorest population. The capacity for self-help of the poor must be built up and supported. Above that the economic and social development of the population should be supported through the project and their situation should be improved and sustained.

3.2 Project example: Sri Lanka – Life after the Tsunami The 26th of December 2004 will remain in our heads as one of the worst natural disasters since mankind. Tsunami – a word, which we can only understand with an abstract conception of endless suffering. But for the affected people in South-East Asia it means the destruction of the existence of their lives, the loss of family members and friends as well as the short-term deletion of any hope for a better future. Apart from Thailand, India and Indonesia, Sri Lanka is one of the countries worst hit.

Basic needs such as housing and fishing boats were washed away or destroyed, landscape and soil devastated, children became orphans and many individuals became the only survivors in their whole family. The Don Bosco Salesians, who have been active already since the year of 1956 in Sri Lanka, took up coordinated and long-term emergency measures. Through years of experience and the knowledge of the political, social and economic conditions they offer unbearable help.

Don Bosco’s support of victims of the flood catastrophe up to now Emergency measures Means of transport for the coordination of the reconstruction Reconstruction (housing construction, fishing boats, etc.) Child care centre Murunkan Rebuilding of a destroyed kinder garden, Tricomalee TOTAL SUM


Jugend Eine Welt continues to support the reconstruction after the flood catastrophe in Sri Lanka on the long run. In total the measures with a total volume of approximately 1,3 million Euros are planned. Apart from private donator our projects are also supported by the “Österreichischen Entwicklungszusammenarbeit” (Austrian Development Cooperation), Caritas Austria and “Nachbar in Not” (Neighbour in Need).

4. Example for a one-year voluntary service Voluntary service in India The project Navajeevan Yuva Bhavan in the town of Vijayawada – which lies in the southern state of Andhra Pradeshin India – was brought to life in 1989 by the Salesians of Don Bosco with the goal to make the integration in life possible for street children. This is done through splitting into more project areas, such as the general street work, the offering of emergency shelters and education possibilities, accommodation in the children’s village, the hospital and the drug prevention centre. Katharina Jordan from Maria Saal is working as one-year volunteer in the project supported by Jugend Eine Welt until the upcoming summer. Email from Katharina Jordan: “… Today I was in Sethu again and there were only about 10 children present, since the others were lucky to spend Christmas and New Years with their families. That’s why the day’s schedule was more relaxed. Today I realized how much I missed the girls, my sisters. Another volunteer and me, we went to a girl’s home, where we visited two children. They were supported by the sister of the volunteer – as sponsored children. Should anybody be interested in a sponsorship, I will gladly send some information. For my girls in Sethu I also had a small Christmas and New Years present (but I would have given it to them anyway even without a special occasion). Every child got a small pencil case, a pencil and a ballpoint pen. I would like to thank everyone who is pleading for my projects consistently the last few months. A lot of donations have been arriving the last time. I am very touched about the fact that there are so many people who support the project and help me to offer a better life to these children– both, in a financial and emotional way. Thank you all, Greetings from the hot India, Katharina”
