Dear All,

I'm writing this in case anyone could actually help. I recently moved to Germany and I've been here since November 2015. I'm 23 years old and I come from Syria. I live in Blankefelde Mahlow, Near Berlin. My problem is that I really want do something, ANYTHING! I feel like that I'm loosing my skills. I have 3 years experience in procurement and as an administrative coordinator. I also work on Photoshop and all Microsoft programs. Mentioning that I am a business administration student. I really want to find something to do especially to be in touch with Germans to get the language experience the most. I'm learning the language here but I need to be in touch with native speakers rather than just reading from the books. If there is anything that I can do or help with, please let me know.

Thanks and regards,
Ayham Alia

Dear Ayham,

I could imagine that your administrative and language skills could be  of use in helping with fellow refugees. There are tons of projects where volunteers organize help of any kind. Perhaps contacting one of them and offering help would be a chance to get hands-on German language practice. If you are interested, I can try help finding a project near you.

For example Weconnect. They connect refugees with local initiatives in Berlin through social activities.
Or thisone. Give something back to Berlin is an initiative of expats living in Berlin to support those in need in Germany's capital
Hello Pexxell,

Thank you very much for your kind reply. I have already contacted them. The main thing I want is to use my skills and knowledge.

I'd be glad if you're able to help out. However, I did contact both of them and let's see what could happen.

Thank you again and please let me know if there's any other project to be involved.

Perhaps you can contact me on my email (
