Breakfast & Talk
Breakfast & Talk, as called ‘Frühstück und Sprechen’ in Germany, won the main prize of the city Frankfurt Neighbourhood Award in the category ‘neighbours for neighbours’ in 2017.
In April 2019 “Frühstück und Sprechen” was awarded the second prize of the so called CARITAS “Senfkornpreis.”
How it began:
At the beginning of 2016, Christiane came up with the idea to get people with a refugee background to integrate with the locals at weekends and with the support of neighbors from the migration network frankfurt started “Breakfast and Talk” get togethers.
Since May 2016, breakfasts are held every two weeks, on Saturday mornings with the help of about 10, supportive neighbors.
“Breakfast and Talk” is the platform to help all participants with their job, apprenticeship or internship search. We assist with visits to authorities, medical facilities and lawyers. We also work closely with the refugees to carry out housing searches, kindergarten placements and family reunification. We organize swimming, gymnastics and cycling events and teach people how to, repair and manage bicycles. Sport Club memberships can be funded when a suitable sport is found.
