Since June 2013, Querstadtein offers city tours with (previously) homeless people in Berlin. They are designed to sharpen your perception of this unseen side of Berlin and its inhabitants, as well as informing you generally about homelessness and the social services available. It’s the first project of Stadtsichten e.V., a registered non-profit association. By now, they also offer city tours by refugees.
Founded in 2009, Solar Sister eradicates energy poverty by empowering women with economic opportunity. They combine the breakthrough potential of solar technology with a deliberately woman-centered direct sales network to bring light, hope and opportunity to even the most remote communities in rural Africa. They are active in Uganda, Tanzania and Nigeria.
