Cairo: Müllstadt-project = student engagement and religious diversity

Since 2014, students from the BHS-Cairo have been supporting the “Müllstadt E.V.” association, which supports people in a waste suburb of Cairo. The students organize fundraisers and visit the community center sponsored by the association, a schooling center, and a kindergarten. Waste from the southern part of the metropolis is collected in this quarter. The people living here separate the rubbish in front of their huts and sell anything useful they may find in it.

For the pupils of the BHS this project means dealing with their social and environmental responsibility as well as, ultimately, with religious diversity, as many of the pupils are Muslim while the waste has been collected and used by Christians for centuries.
