ENGAGEMENT PRICE #PARIENGAGE AWARDED TO THE FOUNDERS OF MÜHLWERK SINNESWANDEL
During the 75th anniversary of the Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband Baden-Württemberg (Parity Welfare Association Baden-Württemberg), the inaugural Engagement Prize #PariEngage was awarded. The founders of Mühlwerk Sinneswandel, located in Bruchsal, won the award in the category of „New Approaches to Supporting People in Special Situations.“
Mühlwerk Sinneswandel provides a unique opportunity for individuals with high support needs, who often struggle to fit into society, to enjoy uncomplicated social participation and find a meaningful place within the community. This in turn allows individuals to grow personally and gain social recognition. Simone Fischer, the state’s disability commissioner, commended the outstanding commitment of Mühlwerk Sinneswandel, stating that the association’s exemplary work is ultimately a benefit for everyone involved.
The prize was received by Manuela Rominski and Sarah Baresi, the founders of Mühlwerk Sinneswandel, from the Minister of Social Affairs, Manne Lucha, who also serves as the patron of the Engagement Prize.
The #PariEngage award recognizes the innovative efforts of individuals, organizations, and initiatives that significantly contribute to social welfare and create new approaches to supporting vulnerable populations. Through this recognition, the Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband Baden-Württemberg aims to promote and celebrate groundbreaking initiatives that improve the lives of people in need.
The award not only highlights the exceptional work of Mühlwerk Sinneswandel and its founders, but also raises awareness about the importance of social inclusion and support for those who often fall through the cracks of society. By providing individuals with hitherto limited opportunities for personal growth and social recognition, Mühlwerk Sinneswandel sets an inspiring example for others in the field of welfare services.
The recognition by #PariEngage will likely bring attention to Mühlwerk Sinneswandel’s work, resulting in increased awareness and support from local communities, government agencies, and potential funding partners. This acknowledgment can also inspire other individuals and organizations to develop innovative approaches to supporting vulnerable populations, ultimately benefiting society as a whole.
The Mühlwerk Sinneswandel’s receipt of the Engagement Prize serves as a reminder that compassion, dedication, and creativity can go a long way in making a positive impact on the lives of those facing societal challenges.
