Chairman Axel Wladimiroff met on 30 August 2018 in Dresden Moritzburg with the Saxon minister of State for Social Affairs and Consumer Protection (health minister) to discuss the work in the association.
As an example from the practice of the project "Women and girls in work and education", the trainee Daddies Patengo-Likombi, who explained to the minister her experience with training in the old nursing sector, accompanied him.
At the heart of the discussion was the relief for interested girls from fleeing countries as well as refugees to give a future with training in Leipzig and the region.

2018-01-18 Association successfully implements integration project
One of the numerous projects in the year 2017, which were carried out by our association, is the Refugee project

"Sport and Afro-dance",

Which is under the direction of the deputy. Chairman Esperance-Mukeshimana Albrecht from Leipzig stood. She understood it, many women and their children from Countries through sport, dance and common food preparation.

The event was very well received, often even in terms of capacity to its limits. Very well prepared in different premises of the city of Leipzig, equipped with high energy, diligence and good ideas, Esperance was able to captivate women and children. While the women practiced their dance steps individually or in the group, the children were professionally cared for in children's groups playfully and pedagogically. We were pleased to note that after only a few hours of practice there was not only enthusiasm among the participants, but that the project quickly became a success variant. More than 17 nations were standing in front of the dance mirrors and practicing their dances, performing gymnastic exercises and standing next to each other at the end of the event, it was necessary to prepare a typical meal. Communication problems did not occur in any way. The common language base was German, and the project manager, who immigrated from Rwanda to Germany even 10 years ago, placed great emphasis on this. German as a basis for rapid integration, the interpreter's concerns were also specialised, particularly in the language of Arab origin, which accompanied women and children, from reception to the adoption of the project day, and a huge help was for Esperance. Both of them held their shoulders by the ups and downs of the days of the event. If one draws a summary of the project, it can be estimated that the goal and success was a big successful component, but the effort was not to be responsible for the success of a volunteer project manager. Without volunteering and with manageable funds, the project would never have been feasible.

The project was promoted and supported by DaMigra Berlin e.v. Thank you very much to this women's migration facility.

Nevertheless, we believe that the project should be offered again at the appropriate time. Success also makes you hungry!
