bee4change e.V.

With our project beeMentor, we want to bring together refugee families or individuals with locals throughout Hamburg in order to give them the necessary support and self-confidence for their start in unfamiliar surroundings. The focus of the mentorships is set by the mentors themselves.

Who can participate? Everyone who wants to help refugee families and is willing to spend some of their free time is welcome. We have many volunteers with language skills in Dari, Pashto, Arabic or Farsi. However, volunteers of all backgrounds are explicitly invited!

Founding year


Paid staff





We are a non-profit organisation and do not generate our own income. We are financed by donations and funding from the Bürgerstiftung Hamburg from the federal programme "Menschen stärken Menschen", the Hanns R. Naumann Foundation, the Preuschhof Foundation and the Edmund-Siemers Foundation.


With our work, we want to create awareness that civic engagement on a private level can bring about great changes in the lives of others. It is often these encounters that people remember for a long time and give them the necessary motivation and self-confidence to find their way in a new environment.

Your support helps

that refugees no longer see themselves primarily as "refugees" but as human beings.
