KuKuk Kultur e.V.

We are determined to protect the place called childhood with  all our heart and strength. Therefore we’re building creative play spaces together with children, teenagers and other volunteers worldwide.

"Look at all the pictures of beautiful spaces that have been formed, the faces of the children and the grown-ups and you can spare out every theoretical explanation about benefits and worth of this commitment. The sharing of joy, the common efforts to master difficulties, the work that unites children as well as adults: all these things speak louder than words."

Personal introductions of our teams’ favourite projects


JOHANNES LEMCKE: IRAQ 2018

„Our projects in the middle of crisis areas are touching me the most. For example experiencing the the history and the rich culture of the Yazidis. their hospitality, philosophy, visiting their sacred sites in NorthernbIraq. Being told there about their sufferings due to ISIS and Saddam Hussein is hardly bearable for us coming from Europe never have experienced war ourselves. We felt honoured being able to build a playground for and with children of an orphanage near to one oft he he big refugee camps there.“
