The life-size purple horse has been the ambassador of the International Horse Show Frankfurt for already six years now and collects donations for charity projects every year. The life-size Purple Horse gets its uniqueness from golden handprints of supporters, prominent riders and personalities.
With the charity campaign, the partners of the Horse Show point out their solidarity with the region and bundle their commitment for selected projects and people who need support - hand in hand for the region.
As a highlight of the campaign, the Purple Horse will be raffled off at the International Horse Show Frankfurt.
This year, two initiatives are selected that support children and young people in their educational and personal development and thus enable them to have better educational opportunities:
Arriving in Frankfurt Main
ZuBaKa gGmbH (Zukunftsbaukasten) has set itself the goal of giving children and young people the resources they need to successfully pass through our education system, regardless of their background and social conditions.
The project "Arriving in Frankfurt Main" supports newly immigrated pupils in their arrival process in the school and social environment.
A total of eight intensive classes will be supported in the current school year 2022/2023, with a special focus on schools that have taken in a particularly large number of pupils from the Ukraine. The Purple Horse supports one intensive class.
Specially trained ZuBaKa scouts support the pupils for the entire school year in their arrival process at school and in their new social environment, as well as in learning German.
In addition, language-sensitive project units with excursions are prepared in cooperation with the teachers of the schools, so that topics of arrival can be linked with language support and socio-pedagogical elements.
Diesterweg-Scholarship in Offenbach
The Diesterweg Scholarship was developed by the Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt. It is the first educational scholarship for families in Germany that provides targeted support for gifted and motivated children on their way from primary school to secondary school, while at the same time involving parents in the process.
Through the Diesterweg Scholarship the children can overcome existing educational barriers that are given due to their background or social environment.
Since 2015, the Diesterweg Scholarship in Offenbach has supported young people in their development and thus overcomes social or societal barriers.
The charity campaign Purple Horse has already supported the Diesterweg Scholarship in Offenbach in previous years.
We are pleased to be able to support with this year's charity campaign the Diesterweg Scholarship team in Offenbach and also the ZuBaKa team with the ZuBaKa Scouts in Frankfurt
