Technisches Hilfswerk OV Sinzig Fascination of THW This year THW is 61 years old. But - 81% of the more than 80.000 volunteers are not older than 40 years, - nearly 20% of the active helpers are between 17 – 25 years old. - 10 % of the adults are women, - in the youth groups (10 – 17 years) 20% are girls and - in the Mini groups (6 – 9 years) are 25% girls. Why do people join and stay in THW? A poll among the members in our local section would give me always the three arguments: 1. Enjoying technics 2. Splendid feeling, when you are able to help other people 3. And most important: the camaraderie that contributes to the fascination with THW.
