Tutor Refugees in Math and IT

Bantabaa was founded in the beginning of 2015 in Kreuzberg. Bantabaa is Mandinka, a West African language and means "encounter". Bantabaa aims to give refugees full support and stands for integration of refugees, meeting them at eye level in order to listen to their stories and to help them to take their future in their own hands.

Because many refugees in their homeland did not have the opportunity to go to school, there is often a lack of basic knowledge, such as simple plus, minus, time, and split calculations. In addition, we want to teach them basic IT skills, such as booking and paying a bus ticket to allow them more independence.

You'll teach basics of math as well as some handy skills for using a computer/ vending machines etc.

Your support is needed on a long-term basis

Fixing Broken Things at the Repair Cafe

Fixing Broken Things at the Repair Cafe

At the Repair Café it's all about fiddling together in a relaxed atmosphere and having a coffee or tea while repairing broken things (alone or together with others) and sharing knowledge on a subject area. Tools and materials for all kinds of repairs are available, so clothing, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, toys and much more can be fixed. Also repair experts are on site: electricians, tailors, carpenters and mechanics.

The aim of the Repair Café is to jointly counter the disposable culture with sustainability and (repair) knowledge. Often appliances and really treasured possessions are discarded, because a repair is not worth it and it is cheaper to just buy something new as a replacement. The Repair Café is open for anyone interested. There is a lively atmosphere with many people pottering and tinkering. Every time it's different because we do not know in advance exactly who will come, which stuff will be brought along and which experts on site!

Putting the World’s Vulnerable People on the Map

Each year, disasters around the world devastate millions of people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

Together with you we will digitally explore remote regions and map villages, roads and other geographical details that are not on a map yet!

Schedule:

20:00: Registration & set-up of the notebooks of participants

20:15: Introduction to Missing Maps and practical information about humanitarian projects using maps that originated from Missing Maps.

Introduction into the technical basics of mapping and presentation of the iD-editor.

Afterwards: Personal assistance and support for mapping.

23:00: End of day presentation and informing about upcoming events
