Class-by-class start of school from 2025/26
International meeting at the end of the first start-up phase
This meeting is not only intended as a special social event, the hope is also that something new will emerge when people from different parts of the world come together, bring something of their own and exchange ideas – with each other and with local people who come into contact with Damawas through the cultural center.
