About the volunteering opportunity

Mobile Tours for Homeless

Berliner Obdachlosenhilfe organises tours to help people who lost their homes and live on the street.
To do so, they meet twice a week to prepare fresh and healthy food and hot drinks to distribute it - together with donated clothes and sleeping bags - on the streets of Berlin. But it's not only about giving material things, it's also about spending time talking to the homeless, sharing thoughts and laughters.

For questions and experience exchange with other volunteers, you're welcome to join the Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1566177383712882/

Whats needed

You like to come in contact with people of different backgrounds and stories and you show acceptance of and solidarity with disadvantaged people.
You take challenges pro-actively without needing any guiding.
Since you go to the different places by your own with public transport you should have a BVG pass, as there are only limited seats in the caravan.
You should also bring appropriate clothes, as the tours take place outside.
German skills are not crucial but if you'd like to get in contact with the people on the street, listen to them, talk to them, at least some German skills are helpful ;)

German Skills
