in 2017 there are still plenty of refugees who would like to get in touch and make friends with locals! It is all about encounters, getting to know, and supporting each other!
On 08.02.2017 (Wednesday) at 7:00 pm we organize our next FriendsNow meeting in the THF Café in Hangar 1 of the Tempelhof Airport.
There you will sit together with new and old Berliners and get all the information on how to become active together within a buddy program – with activities, sports, music, walks and whatever else you feel like doing together.
We will provide translators. We are also trying to acquire the financial means to cover some food and drinks, however we cannot guarantee that yet.
Just come along! In order for us to get an idea how many people will join us and how many refugees we can invite, please send a short response and register until 1st of February at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some short information on FriendsNow:
Meeting Berliners, getting to know the city and move around to see its beautiful sides – that’s what many New-Berliners would like.
That is why we started the program FriendsNow – a cooperation of Asdiqa-Paten für Geflüchtete, GermanNow and THFwelcome.
With FriendsNow, you can start a Patenschaft – which can basically include everything from common activities around sports, music, arts or helping to find a flat in Berlin – for one or up to three New-Berliners. Per Patenschaft, you can get funding of 20 euros per month so that you can go out and get started with your activities together. Also, we will invite you to workshops and group activities like concerts and kayaking.
You can start a Patenschaft with New-Berliner that you allready know or let FriendsNow find someone where you both feel comfortable. Everything you need is a little time – basically between two and four times.
