“It’s like one big family,” Julieth Hernandez describes the Colombian-German Friendship Association with members all over Germany. She supports the association’s “Sport against violence” project, which is run in cooperation with the Institute of Sports and Sports Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. With their ‘little games,’ exercise units developed by the university’s sports scientists, children from socially disadvantaged neighborhoods develop a better awareness of their own body and learn how to interact with others socially. This approach is an important step in learning about conflict management and ultimately a prevention measure against violence and drug abuse. Born in Colombia, Julieth Hernandez is familiar with the problems in her home country, especially in Siloé. The CIM-sponsored project is run in the slum of Cali, a city with a population of over two million people in the south of the country. Today, the student enjoys living in Germany, but she has never forgotten her roots.
