In Brief

About the project

Some 14,000 migrant-led organizations in Germany are currently striving to improve societal cohesion, with people from different backgrounds, religions, and social strata actively working together to achieve this goal. Collectively, they seek to improve social participation and fight racism and discrimination – at the local, national, and international level. In partnership with the Turkish Community in Germany (TGD) and neue deutsche organisationen (ndo), the Robert Bosch Stiftung wants to help migrant-led organizations take a step forward in their development, however that makes sense for them. This could be growing their own skillset, leveling up their organizational structure, or gaining greater reach with their communications. Underpinning all this is the conviction that our society achieves greater equity when we support migrant-led organizations. 

Co-creation: Working closely with partners

The “LEVEL up!” support program marks a change of direction for the Robert Bosch Stiftung, whereby the Foundation is actively seeking the participation and involvement of migrant-led organizations and new German organizations from the outset. The precise details of this support were worked out in a joint process with the Turkish Community in Germany (TGD) and the neue deutsche organisationen – the post-migrant network (ndo). All of the partners were keen to design a support program that addresses the real-world needs and issues of the target group while simultaneously offering enough flexibility to meet a range of challenges, boost local potential, and therefore achieve the most far-reaching impact possible.
