Education and counselling

The Department for Women’s' Affairs promotes a number of educational offerings by women for women.

Migrant women are a target group especially dear to our hearts. There are low-threshold drop-in-centres available to them in many districts, offering counselling and contact opportunities as well as educational programmes such as language and computer courses.

Integration through language and literacy courses

One component of successful integration is mastery of the German language. On the one hand, cultural norms mean that many women are only able to learn German if they are in the company of other women. On the other hand, many women depend on child-minding, which is also offered by most of the women's projects supported by the Department for Women's Affairs. The projects are also where migrant women receive counselling; they are places to meet and exchange experiences.
The goal that all projects have in common is to bring Germans and migrant women together.
