Tausche Bildung für Wohnen (Exchange Education for Housing)
This is us
Our vision is a society with equal opportunities for everyone, in which people are active shapers of their own lives and their living environment. Tausche Bildung für Wohnen e.V. (Exchange education for Housing) would like to demonstrate that bringing together people of different ages and genders, origins, religions, economic backgrounds and social statuses through interaction and debate can lead to mutual education for all participants. During this process, the neighborhood becomes a common creative space.
The association Tausche Bildung für Wohnen e.V. (Exchange Education for Housing), founded in 2012, provides dedicated young people with rent-free shared rooms in structurally disadvantaged neighborhoods. As educational patrons, they promote the academic and personal development of the children in the neighborhood and offer them a second home in the so-called Tauschbars (exchange lobbies), the association's places of activity. This exchange creates a win-win-win situation for the children, educational patrons and the district, and thus a long-term perspective for the immediate region.
Learning support for children between the 1st - 7th grade in the Tauschbar, care ratio 1:3 - 1:5
