“For me, Hajusom means family and love.” (Farsad, Afghanistan)


The theatre project, nationally known for transnational art, “Hajusom”, enables young people to present their way of processing their stories and fates on large theatre stages. The association “Hajusom e.V.” is an aid organisation with consisting of mainly young refugees, who are minors from West Africa, Iran and Afghanistan.


The young people came to Germany without family members, having experienced hardships and are faced with a lack of stability and guidance in their a foreign country of Germany. We also support the creative work of the association by helping the young people to start a new life in Germany. Through our mentoring programme, we help the young people in their everyday life, with administrative tasks and with private lessons. The ethnic diversity among the members of “Visions for Children e.V.” also enables refugees and members to communicate on an equal level. In this way, we create trust and build a relationship with the young people.
