My Sending Organisation: IN VIA Cologne e.V.

General Information

IN VIA Cologne is an catholic association for social work for girls and women. It was founded in 1898 under the name „Catholic Girls Protection Society“. Nowadays they take care of youth people, who are exposed to danger of social disadvantage and unfair restrictions during the choosing of an education.

The work of IN VIA is preventatively oriented and based on basis of the christian view to humans. The religion, nationality and the social status doesn't matter. Also the gender isn't important for IN VIA, even though they specialize in female humans.
