SINGA Deutschland: Rethinking Integration

SINGA develops innovative solutions for the productive encounter of locals and newcomers, often unexpectedly coming to Germany as refugees. Support us to make this society more inclusive!

We are rethinking integration!

Over the course of the past two years many new citizens have arrived in Germany. Since this time intensive language trainings in German have reduced communication barriers in the new environment.

However the lack of personal social networks, especially networks including locals continues to hinder participation in society.
A lack of interaction can also reinforce locals' stereotypes and by this impede integration.

What is actually needed to truly belong to a society and to be able to actively participate in it?

SINGA Deutschland creates opportunities for newcomers and locals to meet and to start social or professional projects together. The encounter "at eye level" deconstructs the predominant image of "helper and needy" and instead highlights instead people's talents and interests.
In this way we have already established Amir's "No Pain Yoga", Samer's Arabic Course for Beginners, Living Room Concerts and many more...

We want to continue to make this possible in the new year by
• organising monthly community meet-ups, where people can get to know each other
• coordinating and communicating of the projects
• as well as providing adequate locations for the projects

With your support we can achieve even more...

Next to the support of the projects, we want to enable the volunteers to participate in trainings to be able to personally grow even more through their engagement at SINGA: trainings for the participants of our SprachCafé to become a language tutor, trainings for the sporty members of our community to become athletic coaches, project management, photography courses and more.

Support us again this year with your donation! :)
