About this project

Why do we need a newspaper for immigrants?
Migrants and refugees are prone to miss current topics and discourses, as they are not yet fluent in the new language. So, they often struggle when trying to understand the mainstream media. However, without being able to gain knowledge and information, participating in the society is impossible. Our target group lacks a medium written in simple language that informs them about current political and socially relevant issues, work and everyday life in Germany, tips about forthcoming local events, and job offers. No other newspaper summarises relevant issues in such an easy-to-understand way and provides the necessary context for immigrants. 

Let us all support unrestricted access to easy-to-understand media:
There is no doubt that editing, graphic design, printing and delivery do cost money. We offer the ArrivalNews newspaper for free to all immigrants and all other people interested in order to give our audience unrestricted access to easy-to-understand media. 
With your donation the ArrivalNews newspaper can remain free of charge. 

The ArrivalNews newspaper helps immigrants to integrate in Germany.
The conceptual focus is on current articles that help immigrants to follow and understand social and political events in Germany. Our readers are informed about current political and socially relevant issues, work and everyday life in Germany, tips about forthcoming local events, and job offers. In this way, we provide our readers with a means of finding their way around in their new communities and neighbourhoods and accompany them on their ways to becoming competent and well-informed citizens in their new environments. Since the ArrivalNews newspaper is written in easy German and every article includes a glossary with potentially difficult vocabulary and/or other information that might be good to know, it is ideally suited for German classes and integration courses. In addition to editorial articles on current topics, refugees and migrants get the chance to share their experiences. Last but not least, our newspaper contains information important and useful to migrants and refugees in general, training opportunities, tips for forthcoming local events, and current job offers. 
 
The ArrivalNews newspaper with about 21.000 issues is published nation-wide and contains local sections in the cities of Munich, Stuttgart, Cologne/Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main, and Hamburg. 
 
We would be very happy, if you helped us keep the ArrivalNews newspaper alive by making a donation to us.
