A team of volunteer rickshaw pilots take senior citizens from five nursing homes for a ride in a Christiania bicycle rickshaw. The volunteers are insured through the church community and can plan their assignments very individually.
We are part of Radeln ohne Alter e.V. with the location Berlin/WannseeMore about the organisation
Senior citizens from five nursing homes in Berlin Wannsee are taken for a walk on an electric bicycle rickshaw. In the front rickshaw two people can take a seat in front of the rickshaw driver. The rickshaw driver receives training and then regulates his or her commitment independently via a doodle calendar, when, how often and for which nursing home he or she wants to offer rides.
To take rickshaw rides for 2 hours once to four times a month for senior citizens. The rickshaw driver independently calls the nursing home to announce the ride, which he has announced in advance by means of a doodle list. The volunteer maintains contact with the rickshaw captain in Wannsee, who coordinates the rickshaw trips.
Enthusiasm for cycling; sociability; independence;
The volunteer should know the German road traffic regulations and know how to ride a bicycle. Openness for elderly seniors with disabilities, but also the desire to get in touch with them is an advantage. The rickshaw drivers are insured by the parish of Wannsee.
You feel like sharing your cycling enthusiasm with older people who can no longer cycle.
Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Medium German skills“.
The German road traffic regulations should be known.
Your support is needed on a long-term basis.
