KiDs - Protecting children from discrimination!

We provide counselling for children of day-care and primary school age, 0 - 12 years old, who have experienced discrimination in Berlin.

Many children already experience discrimination in

  • day-care,
  • primary school,
  • after-school activities,
  • sports clubs,
  • government/public offices,
  • other aspects of life.

We offer support to help these (young) children and their adult caretakers to deal with their experiences.

Children may be discriminated on the basis of a disability and/or chronic illness, their gender or gender identity, ethnic origins, a racialized or anti-Semitic attribution, their age, religion and/or world view, sexual identity, socio-economic status, or their language.

Our counselling sessions are tailored to directly meet the needs of such children, and their adult caretakers. Most importantly, children are able to come to us themselves to speak about their experiences of discrimination. Our services include counselling sessions for children and adults, accompaniment to appointments, and writing letters of complaint.

In our advice sessions, we take a stand with our clients. This means that we are guided by the perspectives expressed by the children and their adult caretakers, and any decisions regarding action to be taken are made together, collaboratively.

We are also keen to help those who work with children to create an environment that is sensitive to discrimination.

Our advice is free of charge and currently available in Arabic, German, English, Serbo-Croation, Spanish, and Turkish. We can also arrange for interpreters for other languages if required.
