Ping pong table for refugee accomodation

We are a shared accommodation for refugees in the Berlin district of Reinickendorf. For the children of the accommodation there is a playground on the premises - but the adults have no leisure activities. The Corona months have often led to a retreat here as well. A table tennis table would be perfect for this target group: a nice opportunity to play sports together and to get to know each other with new residents.

If there is a company or a private person who can make such a donation possible, that would be fantastic!

(Used) laptops for disadvantaged young people looking for a training place

No future without a laptop? A good 70 percent of all disadvantaged young people in our program don't own a laptop because they lack the financial means to buy one of their own.

Smartphones for our partners in Malawi to communicate with us

From Germany, we supervised four construction sites in Malawi this year. This was only possible if there was a smartphone on site to correspond via WhatsApp and to send drawings, documents etc. and get back photos and small videos. With our partner, the Chiuno CBO (community based organisation), this year, in which no travel was possible because of Corona, communication only took place if it was possible via third parties. Therefore, we are looking for smartphone donations so that we can better communicate with the local community or the executive board of the CBO. Last November we built a solar-powered charging station in the village. The local people who live at the subsistence level cannot buy a device, not even a used one (if such a device could be obtained at all). So whoever can hand over a functioning device helps the people in Malawi and our cooperation. In 2021 we want to start building the classrooms and the kindergarten. There will be much to discuss and exchange...

Give your old laptop a new purpose in a refugee home!

Setting up a digital infrastructure

The Covid-19 Pandemic made digital learning for many – young and old – a prerequisite for learning new skills. This is a huge – if not impossible challenge for children and adolescents with a migration background that do not have the technical means or skills in order to successfully engage in home-schooling, digital language courses or online appointments. In order to make these turbulent times a little less complicated for our residents, we are building a digital infrastructure at our facility. In one of our common areas, we are building a computer room in which children will be able to do their homework and get (digital) homework support. Moreover, the digital infrastructure should also enable adults to take part in (digital) language courses, get computer support or simply surf the net to make a doctor’s appointment!

In order to realise this goal, we are looking for laptops and desktops PCs. They do not have to work on a high-speed level, as long as they still function properly, we would be happy to reuse them.

Do you have an old laptop or computer with desktop to spare? Contact us! We are looking forward to hearing from you!

ipads or tablets for a film project with primary school children with migrant background

Hello dear volunteers, 

we at ZuBaKa, a non-profit social enterprise, are starting a film project with primary school children in Frankfurt in January.

We are looking for 4 used ipads so that the children can operate the film equipment all by themselves.

Yes, we know this is a big wish, but if someone has an older generation ipad lying unused in the drawer, we would be totally happy about it. And with us it is used 100%! 

Many greetings

Frederike from ZuBaKa

Smartboard for training

kein Abseits! e.V. increasingly offers training courses for volunteers as part of the mentoring programme and other projects. To be able to guide them with the help of a Smartboard would save a lot of time and effort for the supervisors. We know how cost-intensive the purchase of such a device is and would never be able to pay for it ourselves. Therefore, we would only accept such a donation if the smartboard or access to it is not used by another carrier.

BERLIN | Cargo bicycle for transporting a young refugee in a wheelchair

The communal accommodation in Kiefholzstraße has been opened since October 2018 and offers living space for refugees with special protection needs. Many families, children and people with disabilities live in the shelter. As the facility is not well connected to public transport, we would like to make it possible for all residents to travel by bicycle. However, one resident is 11 years old and dependent on a wheelchair. We are looking for a cargo bike for her and her mother, in which the wheelchair fits, so that the two can move more easily in the neighbourhood.
