In Cologne, we support people with a history of flight and migration, mostly from West Africa and Arab countries, as well as from other countries around the world. We look from our location in Koblenzer Straße to the south of Cologne and reach out to the West African communities in particular through our linguistic and cultural orientation.
Jama Nyeta e.V. offers counseling on legal issues related to asylum, youth and families, housing, employment and much more. Within the framework of projects for labor market integration, we offer (specialized) German courses and other recreational activities. Furthermore, we have other counseling and guidance services for young people who are pursuing higher education or vocational training.
Within the framework of development cooperation in the West Africa region, we give people a perspective on life through targeted and sustainable projects with local and international partner organizations by sustainably networking social enterprises, activating investors and providing specialized information.
