The question & answer community for refugee topics

Zur Community

Wefugees offers refugees and supporters the possibility to help themselves!

On our platform questions surrounding the topic arriving in Germany are asked, answered and found – supported by verified experts.

For Refugees

We believe newly arriving people and locals, irrespective of whether they seek refuge, work voluntarily or full-time, should learn from each other.

On Wefugees, you can ask all your questions! Regardless of whether you are looking for sport clubs, are surprised about the high number of dogs running around or whether you need legal advice.

In this way, we want to support you in feeling  more comfortable in Germany.

Yet, you are not only helping Your participation does thereby not only help yourself! By sharing your experience and asking questions, you also help other people that may have arrived later in Germany and you support volunteers, who again help others.

For Organisations

Due to the inefficient knowledge transfer in refugee support, many processes have to be repeated multiple times which often leads to overwhelmed full-time employees! Although hundreds of organisations and initiatives already work at full speed, they nonetheless have difficulties in providing access to important information for refugees and volunteers. Wefugees offers a solution to this problem! In cooperation with refugees, volunteers and aid organisations we gather collectively generated information on one platform and make real-time access to information possible.

How does it work?

  • Get your own online channel, moderated by us, to get in touch with refugees and volunteers

    • Ask for help from the community and support newly arriving people without much work
    • Let us use your knowledge effectively and sustainably
    • Respond to questions to your project and reach hundreds of people with your answers.
    • Use our notification system, so that you only reply to the most important questions and avoid receiving the same questions multiple times.
  • Present your organisation on our platform and connect with refugees and locals

    • Your logo will appear on our platform
    • You will become a verified expert
    • You will receive your own platform for you own projects
  • Connect with other organisations and support each other’sothers work

    • Develop solutions together and exchange knowledge
    • Use the platform as internal FAQ for your employees

If you are interested in cooperating with us, please don’t hesitate to contact our partner management under: henriette@wefugees.de

For Companies

We believe that integration is a process led by both refugees and locals. We encourage actors from different societal backgrounds to promote a shared, open and supporting society. Your company is critical for this as well.

Social engagement not only increases your employees satisfaction, it also builds and strengthens their commitment to the companiesy. Helping newcomers to start a life establish themselves in Germany by providing professional knowledge to them bears great advantages for you, too!

You may ask why? Because intercultural competence improves your company culture and attracts new employees.

So don’t wait: Do something good (for yourself)!

How does it work?

  • Corporate volunteering in language cafés or workshops

    Use our corporate volunteering services in language exchange cafés and workshops.

  • Corporate volunteering at information events including CV workshops

    Let us organise an information-event in your company and actively participate in workshops with refugees.

  • You want to employ refugees? We offer intercultural training, practical experience in workshops and problem-solving with refugees in co-design workshops.

    We offer intercultural, practial trainings with integrated hands-on workshops and develop custom-made solutions for your problems together with refugees in co-design-workshops.
