about us

Our story​

raisingPERSPECTIVES was founded by Marie-Cathérine Rausch as a Social Enterprise to make a change for young people with few professional perspectives. The idea for this enterprise resulted from a lifechanging experience in being confronted to the existential questions and difficult situations of refugees in Germany.

To prevent young smart, motivated and educated people take the dangerous track as refugees raisingPERSPECTIVES focuses to bridge the today’s big needs for young trainees and experts of german companies with the search of disadvantaged young people for a professional perspective and to create a WIN-WIN situation for both sides.

Every human being should get the chance to make something out of life!
