Project rewarded for its work bringing together girls of different backgrounds in southern Germany

The Step Foundation’s Kick for Girls project has been awarded the PHINEO “efficiency seal”, recognising the impact it achieves through its funding.

On 21 September, the Step Foundation was awarded the “efficiency seal” at a joint meeting between the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the non-profit evaluation centre, PHINEO. 104 non-profit sports and exercise programmes from all over Germany were tested for their effectiveness. An independent commission decided that 22 projects nationwide would receive the seal.

The seal recognises organisations who work particularly efficiently with donations. It shows funders such as foundations, private companies or public authorities that support from these organisations is used optimally. In addition to "Kick for Girls", 21 projects were awarded the seal, as portrayed in the PHINEO “Mit Sport mehr Bewegung” (More Movement with Sport) report.

Dr. Andreas Rickert from PHINEO praised the Step Foundation's approach: “Kick for Girls brings girls with different ethnic, social, cultural and religious backgrounds together through sport in Freiburg, Germany. We were impressed by how systematically the concept is tailored to the needs of girls and how it is continuously adapted and improved."

Voting is now taking place for one of the projects to win the “Publikumspreis” (audience award).
