The organisation "Die Wille" which is located in Berlin/Wedding offers a special internship and mentoring programme for refugees. They help them finding internships and prepare them for the German labour market: (English below)

For high-skilled people with an academic background as you are "mygrade" might be even more interesting. It is an  network that brings refugees in contact with intersectoral employers from all over Germany:

Hello Husam,

I did a retrieval at '' and found this:
Site language is German, I hope, you get along.
Please have a look at the German keywords above the retrieval result list, they can guide you to other practicum offers that could match with your request.

Good luck, Jan

Hi Husam,

If you want, you could send me an email with your CV to I can forward it to an NGO that is looking for an accounting assistant at the moment. As the position won't be filled before the beginning of September they might be open to welcoming you in their accounting team for the interim period, e.g. for August.

Of course I cannot promise anything yet, but with your CV at hand it will be the easiest to get a quick reply.

One question that is important for that: Is your degree in Finance & Accounting already recognised in Germany?

Should you be unsure about that it doesn't matter yet. However, might be helpful anyway.

Best regards,
