The development and qualitative enrichment of girls work in Cairo and Frankfurt a. M. was enforced through direct confrontation of girls ́ workers with forms of girls ́ empowerment and the living conditions of girls and girls ́ workers in a totally different country and city. Instead of providing theoretical knowledge through classical ways as lectures, education material and conferences the program aimed at provoking learning processes through traveling into the other city visiting organizations and talking to beneficiaries.
