The Arche in Berlin-Wedding – how it all began ….

When the Buddy Bär Berlin GmbH started its activities to raise money for children’s relief organisations, it also started to support “Die Arche”.

In a conversation, Bernd Siggelkow, the founder of the Arche, mentioned a single mother (receiving the so-called Hartz IV benefits), who looked after children in the district Berlin-Wedding once a week, following the Arche model.
