About us

"With our association work we want to contribute to a culture of welcome, which enables people in need to lead a peaceful and fulfilled life according to their own wishes and ideas in a secure and social community."

To achieve this, we promote the mobility of people who have just arrived in Berlin.

Many refugees have to travel long distances in the city: to offices, to school, to work, to shop or to take a German course. They often do this on foot, because their pocket money is usually not enough to buy a monthly ticket for public transport.

To make everyday life a little easier for these people, the Rückenwind association was founded in 2015. In its integration workshop, donated bicycles are collected, repaired and handed over to people with a refugee biography.

We are firmly convinced that the bicycle is the best means of transport for the city. Not only because it is a cheap and environmentally friendly way of travelling, but also because you can get to know and explore your new surroundings with your own strength and self-determination.

Our goals: We want to make people mobile, promote integration and protect the environment.

In order to achieve these goals, we are dependent on voluntary helpers and donations.
