The “Jeka fo” project focused both on educational work and on supporting young refugees through their targeted networking.
On the one hand, this involved teaching social and political norms and providing school and career guidance. Dealing with racism and possible legal handling against discrimination were also important topics. On the other hand, an exchange between the young people, some of whom had come to Germany unaccompanied and as minors, and former refugees was encouraged: their experiences on the path to successful professional and social integration were a helpful inspiration for the new immigrants.
In addition, networking also took place with social workers, lawyers, youth welfare offices and other associations and organizations, which offered further information or other support as needed.
We are very grateful for the sponsorship of our project by Aktion Mensch through the Migrafrica e.V. association.
