To be in a new place can be a challenging situation. There are many ways to feel comfortable and arrived – but sometimes it is difficult to figure out where to start. Especially interactions between people from different cultures sometimes don’t occur that naturally. If they do, they can lead to wonderful, enriching relations for everyone involved. We don’t want to leave that up to chance!
Therefore we want to help establish contacts between people from Wuppertal and refugees / asylum seekers living in the city in order to simplify arriving, maybe take fears and make getting to know each other easier.
We cooperate closely with the city of Wuppertal – to be more specific, the social workers taking care of the refugees – who are actively involved and support us with our project.
We are a non-profit organisation. All activities occur on a voluntary basis.
