WHEN was TASH e.V. founded and WHO founded TASH e.V.?

TASH – deutsch-albanische Plattform e.V. is still a pretty young association. The association was founded in March 2007 by 20 students with an Albanian origin. They founded TASH in Frankfurt/Main at the Wolfang-Goethe university. The students met each other on the german social media platform StudiVZ and founded the association under the name of “TASH- Studenteninitiative der Diaspora-Albaner e.V.“ . Since the foundation the association passed through significant changes and realized several projects.

What are the goals of TASH?

Mainly TASH e.V. was founded with the goal to encourage the intercultural work between the Albanian civil society and the German society. The priorities are topics like educational work in the course of development policy and intercultural exchange. Those topics play an important part for a solidarized coexist in a globalized world.

What is the meaning of TASH?

TASH has the meaning Now in the Albanian language. That means to take action here and now for a better world and future.

What has TASH done so far and where is TASH engaged?

In 2009 the association was structured completely new and shifted its point of main effort to the pedagogical university in Ludwigsburg and the bigger area of Stuttgart. The reasons for this changes were mainly the fact that Muhamet Idrizi, the first chairman of TASH, as well as the majority of the  other board members, were students in Ludwigsburg.

In 2009 TASH also started to work under the new name "TASH-deutsch-albanische Studenteninitiative e.V.". With a mixed german-albanian board TASH realized its first bigger project, a excursion to the Kosovo, of 30 students from the University of Ludwigsburg.

Since October 2010 TASH is officially registered as a NGO (Non-governmental organization) in the Albanian city Mitrovice. As a result the network in Mitrovice and in the Kosovo shall be strengthened. In the future those structures shall be further developed.

Today

The association was re-foundet in January of 2016 in Eppingen with the name "TASH - deutsch-albanische Plattform e.V." and has a bigger communiy of albanians living in Eppingen.
