KITA Kohlgartenstraße

project description

Our international kindergarten is located in the eastern part of Leipzig. Almost 50% of the children have a migrant background and they come from 20 different countries. That is why we focus on the intercultural education during our work.
As much as it is possible by the daily routines, our kindergarten operates as an open and barrier-free house where children can move freely.
The volunteer will be working together with the educationalists, supporting their daily work with children.
Other volunteer's tasks will be to organise intercultural meetings, encourage children to learn about new cultures and languages, play integrational games.


accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Normally all the volunteers are living in shared flats, have their own room - but share kitchen and bathroom with 3 others volunteers. Food money will be paid out to you as well as money to buy the local transportation monthly ticket or you just buy a bike. Leipzig is a very nice city to ride a bike.
If you wish we can as well try to organise a host family.


training during the project

We will help you to find a German language course which fits your needs and level.
