WORLDWIDE CHARITY POWER
”EDUCATION FOR LIFE“ STANDS FOR FUTURE”
WHY WE HELP
Intercoiffure unites the best hairdressers in the world and has the highest standards in terms of professional and human skills for its members.This is the aspiration from which derived the idea that the association shall also commit itself socially in order to help the people who are not on the sunny side of life. The Intercoiffure Mondial President Klaus Peter Ochs laid the foundation stone when he launched the relief program “Education for Life” in Paris and proclaimed: “We feel it is our duty to support young people and to give them a prospect. The most important thing we can provide is qualified education”. This was at the same time the birth of the first charity project, of the first training school “Casa Do Menor” – a survival relief and a way out of the slums of Rio de Janeiro for young people.
The Education for Life Committee, together with the Intercoiffure Mondial President Klaus Peter Ochs, chairman Jens Dagné and the Intercoiffure charity delegates and board of directors (education for life ambassadors) of each country, coordinates the worldwide activities.
The objective is to run training schools for hairdressing in as many countries as possible.
WHERE WE HELP
In the meantime, several education projects have emerged around the world, giving the opportunity to young people to receive a qualified training and, consequently, a future. These are children and teenagers from the slums and conflict areas of this world, threatened by starvation, violence, criminality, drugs and war. The majority of young people who have followed a training session in one of these schools could find a job in a hairdressing salon. Education for Life provided immediate help also in natural disasters, in order to help the children on site – in a quick, direct and monitored way, through the worldwide Intercoiffure network of friends.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” True to this guiding principle of Education for Life, we concentrate on a long-lasting help – on the basics of a self-determined life. We sometimes use the facilities of our closely connected “for example Kinderzukunft e.V. and christel house” foundation, which already runs children’s homes for street kids or war orphans in several countries and provides training courses. We thus incorporate and finance the Education for Life training offer in the existing structure.
