Yalla Integra! aims to bring together young people with and without a refugee background from Witten and surroundings. The project will allow them to get to know each other and enjoy different activities as a big group or as a tandem in pairs.
During the first phase of the project the participants will get to know each other and learn about each other’s common interests and hobbies. They will meet once a week and support each other in everyday life situations, make excursions, do sports or create a language tandem.
Every four months, 30 selected young people (between 18 and 30 years) will form 15 tandems. To prepare them for their common activities, all participants will take part in an intercultural and cultural mediation training beforehand.
In addition to that, Yalla Integra! will organize a monthly event for all participants of the project, such as trips in the surrounding area or neighboring cities. In order to consolidate the theoretical learning and to strengthen the practical exchange, participants will be involved in various sport activities, group games or other suggested activities.
During the second phase of the project, the participants themselves will organize a culinary evening called “The World cooks”. This activity will take place every 2 months. 3 refugees will introduce traditional dishes from their home country to 7 other curious participants. Together, they will cook these traditional dishes for a dinner with up to 60 guests; locals, other participants, etc.
The evenings will be rounded off with traditional music, dances, short movies or discussions.
