Social engagement and promoting knowledge
Through the nonprofit Peter Schmehl Foundation, PS‑Team provides support both to disadvantages children and youths in the Rhine-Main region and to international projects. To help in the long term, we emphasize consistency. That’s why many years of partnership connect us to aid organizations and charitable institutions in the region.
Peter Schmehl Foundation
The Peter Schmehl Foundation has an international focus and promotes a broad spectrum of initiatives and projects. It combines diverse social engagement in the Rhine-Main region and supports research and education in various regions of the world. The nonprofit organization also works for health and education both domestically and abroad.
Stiftung Tapfere Kinder
The Stiftung Tapfere Kinder (Brave Children Foundation) supports children and youths in Germany and Thailand. It was founded in 2013 by Reiner Calmund and Ewald Dietrich. In 2018, the foundation was able to support various projects and initiatives with more than 342,000 euro. Since its foundation, PS‑Team has promoted various projects in the region through Tapfere Kinder. Ewald Dietrich: “To have the support of organizations like the Peter Schmehl Foundation gives us planning security. That benefits the children and youths most of all.”
Bethanien Kinderdorf Eltville
Bethanien Kinderdorf Eltville was founded in 1965 and now offers a home to about 90 children and youths who could not grow up in their families of origin for various reasons. In addition to regular Kinderdorf families and living groups, Kinderdorf also supports institutions for therapeutic pedagogy. In Kinderdorf families and living groups, the Kinderdorf mother and educators live in familial communities with the children and youths that have been entrusted to them. In addition to the houses on the property, there are external residential groups in Oestrich-Winkel and Fischbach, as well as a residential group for therapeutic pedagogy in the former parsonage in Erbach.
Caritasverband Wiesbaden-Rheingau-Taunus e.V.
Caritas provides help to people in difficult circumstances all over the world. In Wiesbaden, Rheingau, and Untertaunus, Caritasverband Wiesbaden-Rheingau-Taunus e.V. undertakes this activity. PS‑Team supports various projects to help children and youths. The broad range of help offered by Caritas includes extracurricular courses and professional qualifications, educational guidance, social pedagogic family benefits, and part-time or full-time housing for children and youths.
“To solve global challenges, we have to know more. We will only be able to counter suffering with innovative solutions when we understand how everything is connected. That must happen on a global level.
At the same time, I feel indebted to my home, the Rhine district. I am happy and thankful to have found trustworthy guides in my friend Ewald Dietrich and his Stiftung Tapfere Kinder years ago. They lead us unerringly to the projects and young people that need our support the most.”
