Who we are


  • dona agito gGmbH is a non-profit organisation based in Frankfurt that cooperates closely with the Netzwerk Migration Frankfurt.
  • Since 2015, we have been helping people with a refugee background to find their way in a new and unfamiliar environment.
  • We want to be a link, a mediator and a guide for people who are looking for their place in our society.
  • Our work is practised civic engagement:
    • Private meetings in the neighbourhood such as “Breakfast & Speaking” and in Frankfurt “Meet & Talk” as platforms for getting to know each other and building trust.
    • Neighbours offer support with visits to the authorities and administration offices.
    • Volunteers are involved in excursions, meetings, tutoring programmes and everyday help.
    • Facilitating access to cultural offerings (cooperation with the Staedel, the Alte Oper, Lenka Wolf theatre education, etc.)
    • Empower women (e.g. through cycling classes, Pilates/yoga, and swimming courses)
  • Through shared experiences and activities, we want to promote tolerance between different cultures and deepen a mutual understanding.

dona agito means: donate and act

Derived from donation (English for donation) and agere/ act (Latin/English for act)

LOGO – The swallow

This is what our logo stands for: in many cultures, the swallow symbolises a friend and indispensable helper in difficult situations, the possibility of a harmonious life together with lots of love, trust, and security as well as the spreading of optimism and hope. 
If the swallow flies into a person’s life, this heralds a happy change and the chance to see everything from a different perspective.
However, it is also said that ‘one swallow does not make a summer’. We can’t work magic and find a solution for everything, but we can join forces as neighbours and friends and help to break down barriers.
