‘Welcome among Friends – Alliances for Young Refugees’ is a programme run by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, and the German Children and Youth Foundation. As our external facilitator, Anja Söger guided us through a complex process in a broad alliance that included many different stakeholders from a single municipality. In a short space of time, she gained the trust of all participants, obtained an overview of the situation, identified the respective key points and set about addressing these. Thanks to her careful and creative facilitation, the group kept working consistently and with motivation on key issues, formulated a vision, and developed and implemented the corresponding objectives and strategies. It was a great success! Many thanks. We look forward to working with you again.
