Berlin-Neukölln supports the organisation “LebensWelt” (“Living Environment”) in its project “Frauen im interkulturellen Dialog” (“Women in intercultural dialogue”), offering a space for mothers from different backgrounds (including refugees and asylum-seekers) to come together and share their experiences, worries and questions.
The aim is to build a network between mothers, whatever their background and to promote knowledge about democratic values, women’s rights and options to participate in political and civil life. Ideally, these mothers will pass these values on to their children.
Next to discussion and conversation, the women learn and connect through various activities, such as role-plays, “healthy cooking” classes or by exploring their area together. LebensWelt organises a session every two weeks for three hours.
