The stainless steel shines in the sun, and the MOSCA logo is emblazoned on the swivel arm. The grill is the centerpiece and eye-catcher of the new barbecue area at the Johannesberg School, which was set up with the energetic help of MOSCA GmbH employees. The enormous swinging barbecue was built by five MOSCA trainees under the guidance of their trainer Franz Hamm within just two weeks. This was followed by three days of work at the special education and counseling center of the Johannes-Diakonie Mosbach, where Johannesberg students not only set up the grill and benches, but also created a wooden terrace. School management, teachers, students and MOSCA employees were able to inaugurate the barbecue area in perfect weather – and enjoy barbecue food and drinks on the new terrace. “It has turned out magnificently”, said principal Mario Kiefer about what is now the third project that MOSCA trainees have helped to implement at the Johannesberg School. Kiefer joined Johannes-Diakonie volunteer coordinator Tanja Bauer and teacher Christina Pfeiffer in thanking CEO Simone Mosca, training manager Oliver Krieger and all the other employees involved for their dedicated efforts.
The new barbecue area will now become a place where people can meet, also in an inclusive way. “It has already achieved this through the joint work of students and MOSCA trainees”, enthused Pfeiffer, who accompanied the project with students from the vocational school level. In the future, the barbecue area will be used for soccer tournaments and other events. It will also be used to teach practical life skills, such as how to prepare food. Further design work on the site will also involve the students. For example, a wooden shelf is planned. There are also plans for a wheelchair access road so that students with severe disabilities can easily reach the barbecue area. So there is still a lot to do for Pfeiffer and her students. But thanks to MOSCA, they can now enjoy their breaks at a new barbecue area.
