Who are we?
The association “Rückenwind – Fahrräder für Flüchtlinge e.V.”” was founded by seven young people in Berlin – and is now actively supported by numerous hands, who all did not want to remain idle any longer.
With their project “Bicycles for Refugees,” they provide active refugee aid in voluntary and independent work. Together with refugees, they collect and repair old bicycles and then make them available to them, creating sustainable mobility, a sense of achievement, and employment prospects.
Why do we participate?
We wish to take a stance on an issue that is very important to us. Not only are we in favor of integrating refugees as well as possible, but we also wish to make it very clear that we are against any kind of racism and xenophobia.
