14. July 2017

Dear friends, partners, sponsors and interested parties,

Thank you for the constant and warm interest in our development. That's why I would like to provide today a status report from our non-profit company IT helps gGmbH and the progress. I would be very pleased if this report also provides motivation to support IT helps gGmbH. As announced, we want to be judged by our actions, primarily by digitally visible results. And I think these can really let themselves be seen.

That's what we have in the 2nd century. Quarter 2017 and Made since its inception in mid-March 2017

For accessibility, inclusion and real participation in and through IT
-Recognizing that we, as design and development experts, have to address the issue because the state and administration as well as companies are engaged in digital change, even though it is a social-moral law.
