For the first time ever, a charity concert with the title "With the power of music against war, terror and violence" takes place on Europe day. All profits are donated to the Kassel Safehouse for girls.
Since the beginning of 1992, the Kassel Safehouse for girls (Mädchenhaus Kassel) supports and harbors girls and women, who are face forced marriage. The girls often initiate contact with the Safehouse to ask for practical assistance.
With minors, the procedure is a rapid and secure relocation in cooperation of the responsible Youth Welfare Office. When the danger of suicide is suspected, child and youth psychiatrists are brought into the solution. The girls and women are then brought to other cities. The Kassel Safehouse is the only drop-off point in North Hess. This project is completely financed by donations. Negotiations with the Hessian Ministry for Social Integration for a budget is currently on-going.
