The Lighthouse Project

Community spirit is strong in the Esslingen Graduate School. The Lighthouse Project, where Graduate School students visit senior citizens living in a Seniors’ Centre in Esslingen Kennenburg, is now in its third year.

We are proud to have students who, in addition to 18 months of intensive study, found it important to contribute to the community they lived in. When passing on the project to the next generation of students, Lighthouse founding members said how grateful they were for the many beautiful hours that they spent with the senior citizens in the Seniors’ Centre. 

The students share stories and pictures of their home countries with centre residents, they sing songs and organise games. Residents are clearly delighted to receive so much additional attentional, and enjoy the talks and the informal get-togethers with our young students. For most of the residents, this kind of activity is seldom: the fresh breeze blowing from India, Japan, Bolivia or Canada bewitches smiles into their faces.

Yasuhito Nakazawa, an MBA student in the Graduate School, talks about his experience in the Lighthouse Project.
