Start of the new project “From Almanya to Germany” – Get to know meeting and visit of the Leipzig Christmas Market on 14.12.2018

On Friday, 14.12.2018, our new project “From Almanya to Germany” began. The project is a continuation of “Almanya in Arabic” and is also supported by the Federal Ministry of the Interior and coordinated by the Association of German-Syrian Relief Associations VDSH e.V..

To kick off the project, we met on December 14th for a meet and greet with men and women from Syria and Iraq in the DOZ office in Shakespearestr. 18, 04107 Leipzig. We discussed the future scope of the project and came up with the following topics that will take place every month:

– Regional studies & intercultural sensitivity

– Society & Family & Relationships

– Education & Working Environment

– Everyday life in Germany

In interactive and varied workshops, we will exchange views on the above topics in Arabic, reflect on our experiences and first impressions, and look for solutions to the challenges of everyday life in Germany.

During the meeting, participants shared their individual interests and needs, which will be taken into consideration in the planning of future events.

Important questions that were discussed include:

– How do I find a KITA place for my children?

– What rights do I have?

– How can I become active in civil society and politics?

– How can I be included in society?

– What can we do in the face of racism and discrimination?

– How can I learn the German language, to enter the world of education or work?

In addition, there will be an exciting trip in Leipzig and the surrounding areas every two months so that participants can get to know the area better. On December 14, we had our first excursion to the Leipzig Christmas Market after meet and greet. We learned about the history, growth and traditions of one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany and sampled traditional food and drinks.
