Federal Volunteer Service

At Flamingo e.V. we have two federal volunteer service places for refugees in cooperation with the Naturschutz Foundation.


In the period of 6 to 18 months of the volunteer service the women* can get involved in our association, our network and our existing projects:


  • Free counseling on matters of social and residential issues to all single refugee women* and their children and unaccompanied Minors, irrespective of their origin and residence status. This project is realised in close collaboration with the legal advisor Monika Hermann - lawyer and deputy member of the “Härtefallkommission” in the Berlin Refugee Council
  • The Safe Nest project, in collaboration with the Amali-Foundation, provides eight places for pregnant women or mothers with infants. In addition to a safe place to live during the first period of motherhood, the residents are fully cared for and accompanied.


During the Federal Voluntary Service the refugee women* receive 200€ per month in addition to the regular welfare money as well as the financing of German courses.

Training and qualification

For the further qualification of women* we cooperate with glokal e.V. and their training program "Welcome without paternalism".

Two refugee women* from Flamingo e.V. startet the training in October 2016 and they completed it in June 2017. Both are already experienced in political education work and are now able to provide sensitivity training for white supporters as well as empowerment workshops for refugees.


We are already in touch with other associations and foundations to provide the refugee women* with further training opportunities in other fields of action.
