Founder and CEO of Bildungsprofis
Integrating refugees in the labor market since 2015.
“In 2015, we all saw the pictures of refugees streaming into Europe and especially Germany, people on foot traveling with the few belongings they could carry. It was immediately clear to me: I must do something. The people need help and help that doesn't turn them into passive recipients of aid but shows them the way into German society and the German labour market. That was the trigger to found my NGO, which qualifies refugees for nursing professions. Why nursing? Germany is urgently looking for nursing staff and is recruiting skilled workers abroad for this purpose. Why not open this perspective to people who are already in Germany and are looking for a future?"
