The pilot project started in January 2020 and is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Families, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth as part of the federal program „Democracy in Action!“ The co-financing is provided by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Social Affairs, Health and Equality for a period of five years.
This project’s central coordination office is located at the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Migrantinnen, Migranten und Flüchtlinge in Niedersachsen (amfn e.V.) in Hanover. In addition to amfn e.V., three regional cooperation partners (Haus der Kulturen BS e.V. in Braunschweig, Zukunfts-Werkstatt e.V. in Göttingen and Integration e.V. in Oldenburg) are also involved in the implementation.
