About the volunteering opportunity

Many refugee women and men from African countries - such as Nigeria, Congo, Sierra Leone, Tanzania - have had difficult experiences during their flight and even beforehand in their home country. You support a person in building trust in themselves, their new life and the people in Germany. You explain how things work in Germany, perhaps accompany them to the authorities or simply listen and be there. Some are doing an apprenticeship, others are still waiting for recognition. Together we will see who is best suited to you or who you are best suited to. The accommodation is centrally located in Munich and is easy to reach by subway.

Your Tasks

Walks, talking, listening, sports, sightseeing, drinking coffee/tea, visiting exhibitions, simply leisure activities that you both enjoy
