PAPATYA is a registered youth welfare institution.
The crisis shelter is financed for the most part by the Berlin Senate’s Department for Education, Youth and Research and to a lesser degree by donations. To ensure that in the case of immediate danger a girl can be assisted immediately irrespective of any financing body giving prior assent, PAPATYA finances the stay through a flat charge. Municipal youth welfare services thus face no cost. In case of further add-on costs, PAPATYA liaises with financing bodies in accordance with § 34 and § 41 SGB VIII (Social Law Book).
Our online counselling service SIBEL is a project covering a number of German federal states, and as such currently financed by Baden-Württemberg, Berlin und Brandenburg. We would like to win more federal states as sponsors as SIBEL suffers some financial shortfall and has to be cross- financed through donations.
As beneficiary of the DAPHNE III Program for the Protection of Girls and Women from Violence and the Erasmus+ program we have ensured funding by the European Union. At the moment we collaborate with European und Turkish partner organisation on the projects
