For this year’s German Diversity Day we organized a fun and sport day for 25 kids from Lebenshilfe Herzogenaurach. 12 apprentices led that project together with the Diversity & Inclusion department.

My colleagues and I mapped out the day from start to end. We took on the challenge thinking that improving our conception and planning skills as well as learning more about event- and project management was the main goal.  At the end of the day we realized that we have learned a lot more than that; things you cannot learn in school.

I have to admit that I was pretty nervous when the kids arrived. All of us were not sure how to interact with them; however, as soon as we welcomed the kids and had lunch together, the ice broke. They made it so easy for us to connect with them.

“The theme of the day was ‘Olympic Games’. According to the 5 Olympic rings we created a concept with 5 stations based on the special needs of the kids.”

At the end of the day there were only happy faces. The kids, who had a wonderful afternoon at the World of Sport with lots of fun and sport activities, loved it, and so did my colleagues and I. We truly experienced the power of inclusion.

“Once we overcame our uncertainty how to interact with the kids and their special needs, we had so much fun together and got so much back from them.”

These kids are so open and so full of joy. Uncertainty and prejudice are foreign words to them. They hug you when they are happy and they complain full-throated when they are not. They express their feelings right away. No beating around the bush, no hidden agenda.

Next time I meet a person with disabilities, I know there’s no need to be nervous.
