In the VEITH Foundation we intend to put our knowledge, experience and resources to the service of integration. During the first phase of our initiative we will open a center in Berlin in order to apply our method of learning German (the fastest and most efficient nowadays) to refugees coming from Syria and other countries at war in the area. Our R & D department, under the direction of Dr. Daniel Veith is already adapting the method to the Arabic language (considering that it is based on comparative grammar) and it is being adapted with the concrete idea of a rapid integration to the economic activity and respect towards the cultural and religious sensibilities of our guests.
This is a huge task, and in order to make a significant difference we need all the possible material and human resources and above all, people who will apply this method. That is why the second phase of the Palmira Project is to open a training center for teachers who are able to manage the teaching method, in order to exponentially enhance its application to the hundreds of thousands of refugees seeking asylum in the European frontiers.
Johann Martin Schleyer, was a German linguist born in Oberlauda and remembered for the creation of the Volapük, the first artificial language conceived to become universal and a language for all humanity given that understanding is based on the language.
Dr. Daniel Veith deeply relates himself to Johann Martin Schleyer, not only through the family branch, but due to his linguistic vocation and the value that they place to the language as an imminent social tool.
That is why the VEITH Foundation grants the J.M. Schleyer award to linguistic research. This grant is destined to promote the depth of language knowledge and to refresh the academic perspectives on this area.
One of the reasons that affect the Latin American girls situation is the ingrained influence of fundamentalist religious beliefs that restrict the social, physical and mental circle of women. This limits aspirations on leaning towards different options of studying fields, mobility and personal growth, preventing many times that they choose technical careers, or move to other provinces or countries in order to opt for better educational opportunities, achieving in the end to affect their working options, forcing them to accept low-paid and degrading jobs, and others to engage in prostitution.
The most urgent priority of this initiative is to collaborate for the girls to have better access to and quality of education, removing any obstacle that prevents their active participation and to achieve higher levels of education. In the overall context, this initiative seeks to offer to the region, which suffers from structural poverty, through education, higher income opportunities, improving the economic welfare.
The German director Vann Steinbach is preparing the release of a feature film on Latin American immigration to Spain, currently in post-production.
The feature film analyzes the Latin American immigration to Spain and the problems, worries and fears with which the aggrieved minorities face their new country of residence.
Immigration of underdeveloped regions to nations with a high purchasing power is a conflicting issue that may be found in many parts of the world: the immigration of Turkish or Russian-Germans to Germany, of Arabs and other Africans to France, the Mexican wave to the United States or even within Latin America, the immigration or Paraguayans and Bolivians to Argentina or of Peruvians to Chile, etc.
The argument was drafted in a way that it can captivate a wide range of viewers, from the most humble person who just wants to know how the action continues, to the intellectual, who finds in the dialogs profound reflections regarding the comparison and the sociocultural criticism, from both, the point of view of the immigrant and of the Spanish/ European citizen.
Therefore, the feature film is intended for the general public in all levels of society.
In 2012 the linguistic training and cultural labor center “Veith Institut” was founded in Madrid. Its founding coincided with the peak of the exodus of Spaniards towards Germany, due to the economical crisis.
Its purpose is to provide people that are worried about their professional future a quick and honorable escape from long term unemployment, combining a proficiency of the destined language with the promotion of an intercultural awareness and understanding of the German cultural circle peculiarities.
That same year Globalligence was founded, a specialized agency on labor mobility, linguistic management and socio-cultural integration, that through partners and agreements with different businesses and institutions has managed to establish an employment center in Germany with companies that required qualified individuals, facilitating in this manner their direct inclusion to the labor market, accelerating their integration by eliminating the usual uncertainty and adaptation periods of the migration phenomenon.
Both projects, born in the VEITH Foundation, are now independent and self-sustained businesses with their own economic activities.
VEITH Institut was selected by the Ministry of Economy of the German Federal State of Hesse- a central region of Germany where Frankfurt is located –and the Frankfurt-Rhein-Mainchamber of trades to teach the German language to 14 young Spanish adults that decided to perform a vocational training in Germany.
During 2 months, from May to June, 2013, they learned the German basics in Madrid, before moving to the cities in Hesse, where they would work in the companies and craft workshops that were involved in the project. This one being part of a cooperation agreement between Hesse and the community of Madrid with the objective to oppose youth unemployment and promote collaboration between European Union countries.
Completion of the German course for the Community of Madrid
The high quality of teaching of the VEITH Institut was recognized by the community of Madrid in 2013, only a year after its foundation, by being the selected entity to teach a super intensive German course for children instructors in the Insurance and Finance Training Center in Fuencarral-El Pardo, located in the San Fernando School Complex, in the north of the Spanish capital.
This course took place between October and December 2013, demonstrating the methods quality and adaptability and its fast learning speed under specific objectives.
The trust that the Community of Madrid placed in our institution is an example of the importance of the language as an integration tool and of the large-scale social role that the intensive teaching methods can play and soundly contribute to improving the common environment.
Our collaboration with the Freiburg authorities was a challenging project, training nurses for their inclusion in German hospitals, in such a sensitive area and with so many responsibilities involved in health.
But it was also a project of preparation for the family unit for its integration in the host country, considering that the nurses were moving with their families, so we had to work intensely in raising the awareness of their partners and children regarding what abandoning the Spanish life and socio-cultural space and replacing it with the German one would entail. In order to do that, they were offered a comprehensive analysis of the cultural differences and the best ways to adapt to them.
This project and the rest of the labor exchanges are fruits of our Global allegiance subsidiary, that managed all the aspects of insertion and integration in the host society, providing them with multidisciplinary skills to detect and understand particular aspects of the new environment and respond positively to them.
We have participated in various events, conferences and congresses at different universities in Germany,Spain and Latin America.
The purpose of this report is to raise awareness among university students of the challenges of immigration, but also to expand the idea of high-quality labor migration and social mobility.
Most of these lectures are addressed to senior students whose entry into the labor market is imminent.
Among other institutions we want to highlight our participation at the Nebrija University in Madrid where we were accompanied by the PAMAX Company that manages the standardization and contracting procedures, while the VEITH Institute prepares students of nursing and medicine, during their final years with specialized English for medical practice and the health sector.
We were also invited by the European University of Madrid, a member of the "Laureate International Universities" international group, to present our comprehensive super-intensive program of learning German, including the introduction to the work culture, the job market and the employment opportunities, offered by our partners.
The founder, Dr. Daniel Veith, began investigating the dynamics and the problems of minority languages in relation to migrant studies and the contact between languages.
During his time as a professor at the University of Salamanca in Spain, Veith founded in 2007 along with two fellow researchers the nonprofit association LING / K for the research and documentation of minority languages and he wrote several monographic and divulgational publications.
In 2008 he was the editor of the linguistics journal "Mikroglottika – Minority language studies" that extended to the collaboration on a series of books published by Peter Lang Publishing that during the same year, was also dedicated to the linguistic and social problems of ethnic minorities and migrant groups.
During his three year research and teaching stay in different countries of South America (2003-2006) he was frequently invited to talk about intercultural language and social studies at various conferences and seminars
The VEITH R+D Agency is a research, development and innovation agency under the auspice of the VEITH Foundation, which is understood as the core creator and driving force of all the scientific activity of the VEITH group, based on the educational philosophy of excellence and the fast, logical-systematic and highly effective learning method, developed by the German educational thinker Dr. Daniel Veith. Following the pedagogical principle of the VEITH methodology regarding learning foreign languages, where only teaching focused on a specific pair of languages of a starting and ending point can guarantee immediate success, the VEITH R+D Agency is developing since the summer of 2015, a German language and culture course for Arabic speakers, a key component of the Palmyra Project, with which the VEITH Foundation proposes a quick and efficient solution to the authorities regarding the current problem of mass immigration to Germany.
The VEITH Foundation was created by Dr. Daniel and Dr. Evelyn Veith with the objective to confront the generalized global educational deterioration, firmly committingt hemselves to find a dynamic and substantial solution to renew, enhance and promote European education as a foundation of the cultural heritage of the Old Continent.
As a vision, challenge and final destination, the VEITH Foundation aspires to crea te its own university, the VEITH University, thought of as the cradle of tomorrow’s intelligence. This university will contribute to the revival of education in the European continent itself and will be dedicated to support and strengthen socio-economical and above all, intellectual development in developing countries through the implementation of branches.
The origin of the VEITH foundation goes back fifteen years, to the year 2000, when the founder, Dr. Daniel Veith wrote, during his studies, the thesis project "Italians in Rio de la Plata". His field work led him to Argentina, where he intensively investigated the peculiarities of the European emigration flow to South America during the 19th and 20thcenturies.
Veith pointed out, that the basic condition for the success of any integrating company is to overcome the language barrier, which is why he urges host countries to take concrete measures in order to support the new active citizens.
From this moment, Veith endorsed the objective of working towards the establishment of an international platform for the scientific study of migration and ethnic, linguistic and cultural minorities. This project finally took place in Madrid, Spain, with the creation of the "Documentation and Interpretation of Minority Languages and Cultures Center”.
Through the VEITH foundation he seeks to encourage social, linguistic and cultural scientists to engage a serious analysis of global migration, in order for new compelling means to appear and make a lasting contribution that will work to optimize public and private efforts towards a full integration.
