The Renovation of the Girls’ Room is completed


Thanks to several generous donations, we were able to renovate and refurnish the four girls’ rooms at the crisis centre this year. The girls at the crisis centre and the team from Papatya say THANK YOU!

#Gethelp – against Forced Marriage and Abduction


On 29.04.2019 PAPATYA started the prevention campaign #Gethelp against forced marriage and abduction. The short film #Gethelp encourages everyone, who is threatened with forced marriage and abduction, to get help in time.

We thank the director Gabriel B Arranhio, the actors, the team from CZAR, the football players from Türkiyemspor Berlin e.V. and the HEROES Berlin for their assistance.

Groove Choir Spring Concert in Support of PAPATYA


With a joyful mix of pop, soul and jazz the choir offered not only an enjoyable evening for the 150 guests but also “sang” a donation of €1300 in support of the Papatya crisis centre’s work – a double joy! The donation enables the purchase of the essentials that girls and young women need, if they run away from home without anything. In addition, one or another leisure activity can be financed.

And sometimes a young woman needs a return ticket, to get back to Germany, after the alleged “holiday trip” with her parents turns out to be a planned forced marriage,´. In the foyer the employees of Papatya showed the premiere of their short film on the topic of forced marriage and abduction that had just been completed.
