Participation through Commitment

Commitment not only for refugees, but also by and with refugees – that is the main idea of our pilot project  “Participation through Commitment”. Throughout Germany, volunteer agencies in ten different locations are testing different approaches to aid refugees in finding their way into volunteer services. This happens mostly through shared activities with local volunteers, helping the refugees participate in the community and discover their new home.

When it comes to encouraging, advising and accompanying people in finding their suitable commitment: volunteer agencies are the experts. In this project, we support refugees in their search for a suitable volunteer service, thus enabling them to utilize their skills according to their own preferences.
