Because language is the key to the world.

The challenge

The conditions that many multilingual children grow up with in Austria do not allow for a fair start to school and equal opportunities in education. Without additional easy-access promotion, they do not speak German sufficiently. Their first languages are not specifically promoted either.

We support the children. That way, they can utilise their full linguistic potential and begin their education path with good language skills.

Our vision is for this to change

Mädchen Regenbogen

>> Children born in Austria should be provided with the best conditions to develop their linguistic potential even before they start school.

>> A child’s first language should not be the decisive factor for their success in education.

>> The children’s home languages should be valued and promoted.

This is how we can reach our goal
