Double luck for SOWO in Austria

Two pieces of good news also came from our social housing project "Soziales Wohnhaus" (SOWO) for children and adolescents in Neunkirchen, Austria.

At the end of November, the SOWO received the Lower Austrian Children's Rights Award for its work. With the help of the LR Global Kids Fund, the SOWO team was able to implement targeted projects which are leading the way in the areas of participation, sustainability and self-determination, and thereby earned this appreciative award for their work with children and adolescents.

The next surprise followed a few days later at the LR Annual Ball in Vienna. Manfred Wagner, LR Country Manager, handed over a special donation by the LRGKF in the amount of EUR 10,000 to Daniela Leinweber, managing director of SOWO. This will enable the SOWO team to further expand its projects for children and adolescents. Congratulations! What a sensational year for the SOWO.
