Post-War Pioneers - "Home Instead of Migration"

The Sankt Barbara Foundation offers training for potential returnees from Germany to conflict-ridden countries of origin. The focus is on "Dangers from explosive remnants of war".

NEW FORMATS - face-to-face training (modular system) and now also interactive live online training for hazard awareness

The format for the training courses has been adapted and built up modularly according to the modular system. Content, duration, date and location can now be designed individually and flexibly as required. We are happy to come to you. Individual requests as well as inquiries from institutions and organizations are possible.

The interactive live online awareness training to inform about the dangers of explosive remnants of war can also be arranged individually and flexibly.

Many people flee armed conflicts, leave their homes and seek protection in other countries. Some of them want to return to their country of origin and help with the reconstruction. Home, culture and family are very important.

However, armed conflict may leave some areas of the country with explosive remnants of war, while other areas are considered safe.

The face-to-face training is modularly structured. The "awareness of the dangers of explosive remnants of war" is a fixed component. Here, as in the live online training, the participants learn to recognise and avoid these dangers. They can pass on the knowledge they have acquired directly as multipliers to family, friends, neighbours or the community remaining in their country of origin and apply it themselves when they return home.

Additional modules that can be selected:
basics of first aid and/ or reconstruction and/ or water/ sanitation/ hygiene

Participation in the training is free of charge and is open to all interested parties from conflict-affected countries of origin, but is particularly aimed at potential returnees, as well as those with an unclear perspective who have families in a conflict-affected country of origin.

An obligation to leave the country remains unaffected by the measure.

Information flyers for the face-to-face training with the different modules and for the live online awareness training can be found under Downloads.
