About the volunteering opportunity

The women in the shared accommodation for refugees would like the opportunity to sew.
Many already have experience with sewing themselves and could sew beautiful pieces of clothing or other textiles for themselves and their children. In addition, a sewing studio is a nice opportunity for an exchange.

What we offer:

  • Both sides benefit from the exchange with people with different cultural backgrounds. You get insights and experiences from which you can learn yourself.
  • We accompany you: After a detailed initial interview, regular exchange meetings take place.
  • If you have any questions, there will be a contact person who will help you in word and deed.
  • Free training.
  • Reimbursement of expenses as well as accident and liability insurance as part of your volunteer work.

Your Tasks

Once a week you will organize a sewing studio for refugee women in the group room of the shelter in Berg am Laim or in Pasing. Sewing machines and sewing materials are already available in the shelter, since there was already a sewing workshop here before Corona. You will have the opportunity to get a taste of one of these existing sewing studioss and thus get a feel for your future tasks.

    For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

    • Enjoy getting to know new people
