Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Migration & Refugee Issues

Mission: More than 5,000 refugees from the typical crisis countries Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, but also from Pakistan and Cameroon have come to Pforzheim, a city with about 125,000 inhabitants, in the last 10 years, but especially since 2014. A great challenge – and a great opportunity. The immigrants have many gifts and talents. GH wants to help that especially the women and their children among them find a new home in Pforzheim and can develop their full potential. GoldenHearts has therefore set itself the task of facilitating the integration of refugees in Pforzheim and preparing them for entry into the education and labor market. Learning the German language is the basis for successful integration. In recent years, GH has sponsored or organised various projects in the field of education. The focus of our work is the organisation and implementation of low-threshold German language courses for mothers with parallel childcare.

Golden Hearts really makes a difference in my hometown Pforzheim by successfully teaching German to children and their mothers. Thereby, they set the foundation for successful integration and a world in which living together is beneficial for all of us. I admire the work very much and am glad that there are organizations like Golden Hearts in Pforzheim.

The issue of integration is very prominent in German society and Golden Hearts effectively tackles this issue by starting with the first step of integration which is helping our immigrants acquire basic German language skills. Through careful selection of instructors and lesson plans, Golden Hearts educates women while offering child care services for the children. The Golden Hearts mission is fundamental in successful integration reform in Germany and beyond.

It is very important to give refugee women and children from crisis areas the opportunity to educate and be able to integrate more into German society. Goldenhearts gives everything to enable families to have a better life.

GoldenHearts is a wonderful place, where members of the community from different backgrounds and with different abilities come together. It creates a place where young women who all have their own story of hardship and displacement can learn the German language. This enables them to become part of the community themselves. This is why I volunteer for GoldenHearts and it makes me proud being part of it.

The mission and vision of Goldenhearts has been thoughtfully developed for an unmet need of refugee families - particularly women and children - to facilitate transitioning to a new home country, Germany. This organization and their language assistance programming exists to create a 'soft landing' for refugees to restart their lives near Frankfurt, Germany. Goldenhearts cares deeply about refugee women and children.

The founder of Goldenhearts embodies the phrase for which Angela Merkel, Germany's Chancellor, became famous when she opened Germany's doors to refugees: "Wir schaffen das" (we can do it!). Too many of us are all talk, no action, but Goldenhearts is ALL action. For one individual (with her supportive family) to create from scratch a critically needed, highly effective, and local community-respected refugee education project is extraordinary. Goldenhearts' classes and programmes not only serve the short-term (language-acquisition) and longer term (employment) interests of its clients (women and children) but also fosters unity and collaboration among the citizens of its home town. It is a privilege to volunteer for Goldenhearts!

Goldenhearts cares about people who are often neglected in the current pandemic: mothers and their children. They are trying to start a new live, because they had to flee from their homes. Refugees need this support in order to feel welcomed and in order to be able to start a new successful life in Germany. I am very happy to help and support GoldenHearts!

I live in Pforzheim, Germany, where we have the biggest amount of refugees in our region (Baden-Württemberg). Golden hearts helps to integrate refugee women into our german culture by learning the language. It is important for the foreign women to get integrated and also for our social balance and social life in the city. I am glad to help this great organisation as much as I can.
