Aid Projects of nehemia team Fürth


Workshops, seminars, concerts or stays abroad – there are always many events the nehemia team invites you to. The focus is on personal development, civil society projects and breaking down one’s own boundaries. Information on current training courses, events and foreign assignments can be found here.


“GoKick” (Gostenhof Children’s Club) is an intercultural children’s meeting which focuses on experiential education in Nuremberg’s Gostenhof district.

It takes place every Thursday from 4:30 pm in Gostenhof at the Veit-Stoß-Platz or in the gym of the Johann-Daniel-Preißler-Schule.

Usually, 8 to 15 children aged between 5 and 12 come from families living in this part of town. This program is sponsored by the City of Nuremberg (Kreisjugendring Nürnberg).


Under the motto “WELCOME IN GERMANY”, the Contact Café offers the opportunity for German and refugee people to meet and get to know each other. It takes place every Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in cooperation with the Luther Church at Hasenbuck in Ingolstädter Straße 126 in the youth basement and community room.
The program is currently supplemented by language and learning support for children in grades 1-5.

Exploring Life

Exploring Life WG is a flat-sharing community that is about more than having a roof over your head. Together with the nehemia coaches, the residents find out what is relevant to them in life and which lifestyle suits them best. 


Coaching supports people in developing their individual capabilities. In this context, the nehemia team promotes the discovery of one’s own potential in order to implement it independently in one’s own life practice. With committed people and groups of people, specific possible solutions are developed which bring about a lasting change in their life reality.

Small Business Development

The best help is often to enable people to become independent. Together with its partners, the nehemia team develops tailor-made small business plans and accompanies them step by step through their implementation. In recent years, companies such as Fair Trade Pfefferhandel from Borneo and a bakery in Kenya have emerged.

Vulnerable Refugees

Admission programme for particularly vulnerable fugitives “Fresh start in a team” (NesT) 

The nehemia team wants to enable these refugees to make a new start and to have a life in freedom and security by helping them to be admitted to Germany.

Intercultural Training

The goal of our intercultural training is to understand people from other cultures. The target groups are Germans who work with people from a migrant background as well as people who themselves have a refugee background.

It is possible to order our intercultural training material directly from nehemia team e.V. for a fee after signing a user agreement.
