We are Schüler Helfen Leben!

We are Schüler Helfen Leben (SHL), an organization of young people for young people. It promotes and runs youth and educational projects in Southeastern Europe, Jordan and Germany with a focus on anti-discrimination, youth engagement and support for refugees. Once a year, we organize the Solidarity Action Day throughout Germany, where students swap their school desk for a job for one day and donate their wages to their peers.

Join us and get involved in the Solidarity Action Day!
