K19 – Fit for Life

Jürgen Klinsmann wanted to show his commitment again in his former sporting goods store in the heart of Geislingen. For 28 years, he operated the sporting goods store on approx. 500 square meters with his former soccer coach of SG Geislingen, Werner Gass. He organized several meetings in 2017 and 2018 to activate the old network and entered consultations with the municipal government; mayor Frank Dehmer; the schools, clubs, and the authorities for child and youth welfare service; as well as various institutions. The aim was to use the space in Geislingen as best as possible for the children. Five work groups have identified the need for a community center that cares for children aged six to twelve. They named the project “K19 – Fit for Life”.

“The way children see the world shapes the way they face it as adults.”

The K19 children’s center makes everybody feel welcome and part of a group. The center offers acceptance and protection for all, giving everyone the foundation and space to develop and pursue their own interests. It is of utmost importance for us to give all children between the ages six and twelve access to K19, regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, or religion. Our work is characterized by its voluntary nature. Each child can participate in K19’s projects according to their own interests and desires. The projects include activities that are tailored to the needs of the children as well as established programs, which the cooperation partners of K19 will provide at the center.
