Target groups of both programmes
For Griffbereit and Rucksack KiTa we have defined the following five target groups:
Multilingualism refers to a person's ability to speak or understand more than one language. With our programmes we want to promote this.
Diversity is a concept in sociology and social psychology that is used in German-speaking countries analogously to the term diversity used in English-speaking countries.
People are encouraged to discover and develop their own strengths. To recognise and use their existing resources.

I felt like I had arrived in Germany after I arrived at the Rucksack KiTa programme participated.
Participant from a heterogeneous Rucksack KiTa group from Unna
Through the Rucksack KiTa-programme, I have felt motivated and supported. I successfully participated in an "Alpha" (literacy course) language course and now I also dare to exchange with the educators and read in front of the other mothers in the Rucksack KiTa group. We have a great atmosphere, a great parent guide and a great trusting relationship within our group.
It is an honour and a pleasure to be a part of the programme. Griffbereit to be. The children learn very quickly and helping to shape the progress inspires me.
Multilingual children develop in the same way as monolingual children
Multilingualism is an opportunity, not an excessive demand
Language and identity are closely linked
Language blends are part of natural communication and identity in multilingual families
The attitude towards speakers of one language determines how successful the acquisition of another language is.
Language acquisition is individual and depends on various factors
Multilingualism is the norm, monolingualism the exception
How can I support language acquisition?
