Lebenshilfe aid organization

Deutsche Telekom has been supporting the” Lebenshilfe for people with mental disabilities” since 2010. We regularly conduct joint activities within the scope of our engagement@telekom and “Responsibility wins“ program. Our employees volunteer their time and expertise at our numerous Social Days, participating in activities such as teaching people how to use cell phones and the Internet. Deutsche Telekom had the course materials translated into simple language. The “Bundesvereinigung Lebenshilfe aid organization” was founded in Germany in 1958 by affected parents and experts. It defines itself as an association for self-help as well as a parent, expert and support organization for people with mental disabilities and their families. The organization is particularly involved in promoting equal opportunities for the disabled and in creating an accessible society.
