  • Happy people do good things
    „Happy people do good things“ – as simple as it is, that’s what I’ve learned at the OHF. And it is a challenge to spread happiness in a context where crimes against humanity caused by the European closed-doors policy become the most visible.

"Equality, trust, home for everyone..." These are only some results of a task we had to do yesterday. The entire team of helpers, coordination team and volunteers and the partners of OHF attended a workshop on our Community Center and its future. The entire day we worked on what is good at OHF and what we want to keep and as well on which parts can be improved and how we would like to do it.
Every single voice is important, for that we made sure that enough translators attended.
It was really amazing how many good ideas, such as improving daily services and trying to make the OHF more of a training center, were shared.

During the Workshop breaks we found time to hang out together: precious moments for the whole team because during the daily business we often don't find time to really either get to know each other more or just spend time together. We ended the day with a group picture (coming soon :)) and we had an amazing barbecue, dance and laughter.

Thanks to the whole organisation team of this workshop, thank you Maya! "Check out" 🙂
