Since 1968, “SOS Kannerduerf Lëtzebuerg” has undertaken to support children whose natural development is at risk as a result of traumatic experiences such as physical abuse or neglect. At present, Kannerduerf Lëtzebuerg is monitoring some 300 children at its inpatient and outpatient facilities.
“SOS Kannerduerf Lëtzebuerg” has decided to illustrate its 50th anniversary stamp with a picture drawn by a child living at Kannerduerf Lëtzebuerg. The more you believe in a child and see the best in them, the more they will ultimately believe in themselves.
The APEMH, the Association of Parents of Mentally Handicapped Children, was established in 1967 and for more than 50 years has been serving people with intellectual disabilities of all ages and in all areas of life.
To mark its anniversary, the APEMH wants to focus primarily on the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities, under the slogan of: “Zesumme fir eng inklusiv Gesellschaft”.
Every year some 940 people benefit either on a permanent or one-off basis, from one or more of the services offered by the APEMH.
The 2017-2018 school year marks the 125th anniversary of the Lycée de Garçons in Luxembourg. It traces its origins back to the mid-19th century when Luxembourg saw the advent, alongside outdated agriculture and crafts, of new industries and financial institutions. Therefore, it was useful to set up a new school that could train engineers and accountants.
During these 125 years, the Lycée de Garçons has spanned over three centuries and two world wars, taking on secondary, technical and commercial education, classical education and university courses.
