POP Project: Help for the Philippines

Typhoon Haiyan claimed in 2013 many victims in the Philippines and devastated entire country areas. Inspired by the broadcasted pictures, an idea was created spontaneously during the project management course: according to the motto “Help for the Philippine – Pay what you want”, people in the city of Stuttgart could enjoy a warm meal for a monetary donation.

With the energetic support of “Malteser Hilfsdienst”, the local radio station “Big FM” and a large word-of-mouth recommendation the team managed to draw attention to the creative fundraising campaign. In the end, more than 10,000 AUD were donated.

With our „POP Projects“ students and graduates have the chance to work interdisciplinary on projects. They gain additional knowledge, receive feedback from experts and professional credits for their curriculum vitae.

The terms and conditions vary depending on the different projects. There is always a release or presentation of the final work at the end of each POP Project.
