The Fairkaufhaus creates employment opportunities for mentally ill people. In the Fairkaufhaus, they can work according to their personal abilities in different areas - such as transport, goods sorting, laundry, warehousing, processing, sales, cleaning or house clearances - and are at the same time professionally coached and psycho-socially looked after, so that they receive a fair chance (again) to pursue meaningful employment.More about the organisation
FAIRKAUFHAUS is not only employer for people with mental illnesses but also a possibility for underprivileged people to buy clothes for less money. One special thing about the store is the nice set-up which allows a dignified shopping experience for the people in need. On September 4th, winter season will start. Summer clothes will be banned into the cellar and winter clothes shall be presented in the store. Therefore, we need helping hands so that everything runs quickly and smoothly.
Your task will be to hang the clothes in the store and sort them by color. You will be part of small group of people (around 3).
You should have a basic interest in clothes. As you will get in contact with our employees with mental illnesses (e.g. depression), you should be able to deal with them.
Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Basic German skills“.
It is ok to only help once.
Am I covered by accident and/or casualty insurance during the project?
