Fight against child poverty in Germany
The german media company RTL initiated the "Foundation RTL - we help children e.V." to assist socially disadvantaged children and young people in Germany. Since 2009 RTL has established children's homes in Germany. In these centres, children and teenagers receive tutoring assistance in addition to a balanced meal, loving care, and are encouraged through creative play and learning opportunities. Currently there are 11 RTL children's homes. 3 more are currently in the planning, with more to come. All RTL children's homes of the "RTL Foundation - we help children e. V." have long term support.
Since 2013 the GBI Deutschland association supported the RTL Foundation, “We help Children” with their donations. In 2017 the german GBI participants will raise funds for a childrens home in Cologne. The German TV presenter Birgit Schrowange is godmother of this house.
