As non refugee I'm proud, too. I can tell my colleagues stories from marginalized people who win back their self confidence. It brings cohesion to society.

thank you for this! Just an addition: three of us coming from another country have a diploma as nurse or midwife. They made their first steps as teachers in this initiative and were able to transfer their knowledge and experience with German education system and curriculum.

In Germany the Job-Center as responsible part of the administration often classify refugees as people with low educational level ignoring the education of their origin country. If someone accepts a low level job in order to get money quickly his further career is determined. It needs a lot of explanation from our association to make the Job-Center pay an education. We really have to change this!
