NEIGHBOR is a collaboration between Matriarch and fellow Berlin-based organization Give Something Back to Berlin.
"Founded in 2013, Give Something Back To Berlin is the first and the largest project platform and network that makes social engagement and neighbourhood work accessible to the large non-German speaking population of Berlin.
We created a tool for community integration that brings together more “privileged” migrants, German locals and more vulnerable migrants such as refugees. In our extensive grassroots work, different migrants and their Berlin neighbours meet. Our intercultural volunteering is positive, lived “think global, act local” work, showcasing that everyone has something to share with others regardless of their passport, status, language skills or how long they may have been in the country."
50% of the proceeds from sales of NEIGHBOR bags go directly into supporting GSBTB's substantial efforts to support refugees in Berlin.
