In 2012, Regine Sixt, together with then-German President Christian Wulff, visited the Palestinian Talitha Kumi Education center in Beit Jala near Bethlehem. The institution, which is supported by Berliner Missionswerk, includes a nursery, a top-notch primary and secondary school, a hotel industry school, a girls' boarding house, and a large guest house. With her 'Drying Little Tears' initiative, Regine Sixt supported the project by overhauling the nursery's playground, giving the children at Talitha Kumi plenty of safe space to play freely.
When it was discovered at the beginning of 2015 that a complete renovation of the kindergarten playground was necessary, everything proceeded at record speed. The Board of Directors of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation quickly and easily approved the costs for this at the beginning of March. As a result, work began immediately on site and the new playground was inaugurated just over two months later. In the “Talitha Kumi” education center in Beit Jala near Bethlehem, 120 girls and boys aged three to six years play and learn in age-appropriate groups.
