"One voice can change a room. And if one voice can change a room, then it can change a city. And if it can change a city, it can change a state. And if it can change a state, it can change a nation. And if it can change a nation, it can change the world. Your voice can change the world." Barack Obama

Many editors in business newsrooms across Europe are wondering why they have been receiving regular releases from us since the end of last year. A non-profit organisation from far away Lübeck (Germany) is considered at best a topic for the category "social affairs" ... Far from it!

With our project we would like to help seriously ill and traumatised children and youths to come to terms with what they have experienced. It is about integrating something that has happened into one's own life and learning how to deal with it. Some people wonder why we have initiated such a project for this clientele.

From the financial requirements for the Bowspirit Kids' project, some might conclude that "the rich" or "large foundations and companies" should take responsibility for it. This idea is fundamentally wrong.

There are obviously some fixed points in our project where the essentials are seemingly invisible to outsiders, even though they are obvious to us initiators. Please let us talk about this in a small series of news articles starting here, so that you can also say "I can see rightly not only with my heart, but also with my eyes and my mind".

Some of you guys might be afraid to leave their kid alone on a ship. Especially if it had just survived a serious illness ...

We must not lose sight of the problems children face here. And in whose breast two hearts beat, he or she simply divides the amount he or she can spare - one half into disaster relief and the other half into disaster prevention by many, many generations of Bowspirit Kids at the nerve centres of our societies.

It is correct to say that we need a lot of money for our project. However, it is wrong to say that it is "too expensive", not feasible or something similar. That's exactly not what it is.

The stay with the Bowspirit Kids will be completely free for all kids. We are not building a luxury liner for wealthy families here. We don't care where you come from. We want to know who you are.

There is another reason why we think we should make a sea voyage with our young guests and not a trip to the seaside.

Why do we want to go on a sea voyage with our young guests? Some people might think one could have a good time with the kids somewhere on land.

With us on board, the point is to integrate something that has happened into one's own life and to learn how to deal with it.

You've often asked me if we're planning a hospital ship. No - that's not Michael's vision. We will have medically, psychologically and pedagogically trained personnel on board. But whoever wants to come to us on board must have completed the in-patient therapy or at least a therapy phase.
