Who we are

About Rückenwind - Bikes for Refugees e.V.

A non- profit association whose mission it is to make refugees in Berlin mobile and offer them a chance to be active.

This is why we run a workshop in Neukölln where refugees repair bikes together with our team.

We support a society in which every person has an equal standing and encourage the solidarity between its various members.

The workshop is a place where people from different cultures come together and make positive experiences by fixing their own bikes.

The Workshop

How is the sequence in the workshop?

Gradually we invite those refugees who registered themselves to our opening times.

At first we search for a suitable bike from our donated bicycles and then it can be repaired together with one of our mechanics.

If a refugee is interested in learning how to fix bikes and has time to come to our workshop regulary, he or she can explore step by step how to build up a bike and how to repair old ones.

The aim of those days should not only be the communication of knowledge, but the transmission of responsibility for certain tasks.
