Germany is part of our name – that’s where we’re from and where our International Office is located. We live in a globalized world in which poverty, injustice and violence does not stop just because of an international border. While our focus is generally on individuals, families and communities in predominantly Islamic countries our principles and goals are not constrained by location. With this in mind, engagement for us also includes reconciliation activities here in Germany.
We keep our eyes open for opportunities to build bridges between Germany and our program countries. Germany is host to people from all over the globe and we have found that many of our neighbors are from those countries where we work. This provides us the ability to connect with these individuals through activities like a training program for volunteers who assist refugees called “Helping Conversation – Understanding and Walking with People in Crisis”, which was developed by World Relief Germany. Additionally, we have the privilege to advocate for the vulnerable within the many international networks that we participate in as an organization.
If you are iterested in hearing more about the successes and challenges of our work you can subscribe to our digital newsletter (in German) as well as following our blog and social media. We are also happy to discuss the possibility of connecting with you in person if you are interested in hearing more about any of our projects.
Germany has welcomed many people from around the world. We have people from all of our program countries living in our neighborhood in Berlin. Here we also try to connect, through activities with migrants or through the training program for volunteers assisting refugees – “Helping Conversation – Understanding and Walking with People in Crisis” , which was developed by World Relief Germany.
Reconciliation in Action, worldwide engagement – be part of this movement!
