The Performance Theater 2019 in Seattle was a real motivation boost for our FIVESTONES work! It always feels so good to see that CEOs of global corporations like Unilever, Mastercard or Shell, representatives of international organizations like the International Red Cross or the World Bank, CEOs of foundations and funds like the IKEA Foundation or the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are equally interested in discussing what contribution they can and must make to a better world like representatives of innovative initiatives, civil society organizations and companies, which, like FIVESTONES, have emerged from the personal commitment and sincere motivation of individuals. To meet at eye level, talk about local approaches in the context of the big picture, to immerse in previously unknown worlds and to make friends – these are the annual meetings of the TPT. Pfuisi Franz and Masomah Regl are very grateful to be part of that excellent group!

The FIVESTONES “Sustainable Growth Seminars” have kicked off with a day at the high school for mechatronics in Kapfenberg. Franz Pfuisi attended the student’s presentation of their final projects on electrification and also shared his expertise on the powertrain of tomorrow.
If you’re a committed expert in whatever field and willing to share your knowledge so that we as a society can grow in a responsible manner, join our “sustainable growth” seminars as a lecturer!
The topic of the current issue of the journal WELT DER FRAUEN, published since 1946, is “Wendezeiten”. It also mentions FIVESTONES founder Masomah Regl, whose life took an incredible turn at an early age and offered her a second chance. For Masomah Regl, change therefore has a decidedly positive connotation and is associated with a new beginning rather than a threat. FIVESTONES also understands turnaround times as an opportunity to pause, reflect, and then break new ground. Whether individually, familially, socially or globally: Changes should be made, because they are only negative, if one encounters them with fear and panic!
Four youth organisations in Kabul – Kabul Equal, Afghan Parkour Society APS and Afghan Youth Vision – were on live TV again! These young people show what true leadership is: They work hard and motivate the youth of Kabul to get involved, become active, be good and do good to others. Fardeen Barakzai leads the youth organisation Urban Challenge (supported by MMCC) and also Kabul Equal (FIVESTONES partner), Baran Amiri is a brave young woman who participates in all the activities and shows other girls that it is possible to get rid of the societal and familial chains that holds them back. The versatile acrobat Qudrat Frotan leads Afghan Parkour Society and helps to change society via Sport, and Ahmad Valy Niazi founded the photography club Afghan Youth Vision where he passes on his knowledge to other young people.
This has been one interesting Diversity Day at the Styrian Economy Chamber Organization. We presented FIVESTONES and its project I.D.E.A. – Integration By Fulfilling Work to the audience consisting of representatives of the major companies in the region and other projects and initiatives aiming at the integration into the working world of immigrant youth. FIVESTONES pointed out that for real integration work it is also necessary to improve the representation of Afghanistan and Afghans in the media. FIVESTONES aims at empowering fellow Afghans, so we can be taken seriously and be seen as fully valuable employees. Immigrants and refugees, especially Afghans in Europe have to work twice or three times as hard as others in order to get a chance of obtaining a fulfilling job.
