„Finally reeching home - Refugeewomen draing a line at a tree.
For all single traevling and single mother refugee women is the habitation at a refugee camp always combined with a kind of torture.
If finally the have the chance - after having been waiting for a long while - to start new with their own flat, feeling secure, finding peace often new problems are arising:
mostly isolated from the society and missing freinds, they do not have a social network
and their flats are mostly empty, with no furniture and not renovated.
They are missing tools, material, a car and mostly also the Know How how to do paperhanging, painting walls, connecting lamps, thrilling wholes etc.

agisra e.V., KMII (no person is illegal)and the TV Program Women TV in the city of Cologne want to originate a cooperation project to connect refugeewomen with craftswomen and a group of solidary engagned German women.
On a rotational bases new rented flats of refugee women shall be renovated from this mixed group out of other refugee women and helpers.
therefore it shall be faciliate that those refugee women lern to help them self selfcontained, evolve selfconfidence and getting to know their neighbourhood and other females.
This is a first and important step to stand on their own legs.
A constant turnover of the group, which wil be normal by nature of the idea, is given but as well intended. So it will be possible to give prefrable as many women as possible the possibility to make them able to learn at least some technics of craftmanship.

To realise this idea we are dependent on donations and helping hands. Only with two half jobs we will be able to realise the project. Because a tight cooperation inbetween refugee women. craftswomen and helping hands is needed. This cooperation needs to be coordinated on both sides.
Additional we urgently need a storeroom in the city to store all the basic tools and materials as ledders, paint, thrills etc. so we do not have to buy them for each renovation new.

We are looking forward to your help
