After a far too long period of time, the ABC-table at "Schwarzes Schaf e.V." in Louisenstraße 44 can start again. On the upcoming tuesday, 01.09.2020, we are looking forward to meet again for the first time from 19:00 to 20:30!. Please bring a face mask and something to drink for yourself. Of course homework tasks and questions of each kind are welcome as well.
Even tough the Tolerade through Dresden can not take place on 16.5., we will not be silent! On this day many organizations, crews and artist from and around Dresden will put together a radio program, which couldn't be more varied. ColoRadio offered us their station for that day. From 2 pm on you can listen to nice tunes and interessting speeches. We will entertain you from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm together with "WillkommeninJohannstadt e.V"., "Montagscafé", "WirsindPaten", "Startwithafriend" and "SächsischenFlüchtingsrat e.V.". Our common theme is flight and asylum.
In the middle of the Corona crisis the new project "Berufstandem" of the "AG Ausbildung und Arbeit" of initiative "Willkommen in Löbtau e.V." started.
It supports mirgants with a specific professional aim and sufficient German knowledge in building a professional network and in finding a job or a trainee position in and around Dresden.
At the moment, the projekt is looking for migrants, who came to Germany within the past 5 years ("Berufs-Explorer") and experienced professionals ("Berufs-Scout"), who are willing to become a Berufstandem for 6 months.
Because of the restrictions due to the Coronavirus, RLC (Refugee Law Clinic) is offering online consulting. Therfore you can reach them via phone on mondays, wednesdays and fridays from 15:00 to 17:00.
As all of you know, the Corono-virus is spreading rapidly. To reduce the risk of infection for you and those around you, we decided to stop running several IDA-projects. This means, for an indefinite period of time, we have to cancel - homework assistences in Louisenstraße, K9 and at TU Dresden - german class in Hamburger Straße - international cooking evenings.
As soon as we are planning to start these projects again, we will let you know! Until then, stay healthy!
This year, IDA is one of the finalists of the "Welcome"- prize of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The BMBF awards this prize to outstanding student initiatives of the DAAD-"Welcome"- programme that funds IDAs activities. Among 50 applicants, we have now been chosen as one of the top three initiatives in Germany.
The prize is targeted at initiatives that can serve as a model for the support of refugees and international students. Although we still don't know, whether we'll come in first, second or third at the awarding ceremony in Berlin on July 5th, we are very happy to be nominated. Keep your fingers crossed for us, we'll keep you posted.
PS: This nomination would not be possible without your support and engagement! Therefore we want to thank everyone, who has supported us and made our activities work. Dear helpers, supporters and volunteers: YOU ARE GREAT!
