Establishing and running a bilingual day-care center in German-Aramaic is still considered pioneering work. There is no comparable day-care center for children yet. This makes it all the more important for us to work with the right partners right from the start in order to achieve the best possible result.
This applies on a number of levels, i.e. ethically, linguistically, socially, culturally, but also economically. In the following an extract of our partners:
Archdiocese of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch in Germany
The archdiocese of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch in Germany has an estimated 100,000 members today, spread out over 60 parishes.

Sarug monastery in Warburg (Westphalia).
There is a close cooperation with the archdiocese. They support and advocate our work.
