The YAAR e.V. was founded as a migrant: internal self-organization in Berlin in 2012 to support people from Afghanistan who have just arrived in Germany. In the first four years of the association, we primarily established ourselves with language promotion and low-threshold educational offers. Since 2016 we have built up a comprehensive offer for the Afghan community in Berlin and Brandenburg with diverse government and private support:
- Asylum law and social advice,
- Language and educational offers
- Women's programs to promote social participation,
- Cultural exchange and hosting of events as well as for the Afghan community and the majority society.
Our goals are to support the Afghan community in their needs and to increase their overall social visibility and participation.
Die Mitgliedschaft im Verband ist für uns ein wichtiger Schritt, um diese Ziele zu erreichen.
Our motivation to found an Afghan association together with other fellow campaigners is very simple: We want to have a say, help shape and become visible!
