There are several projects for asylum seekers in Ludwigshafen.
"With bike and advice"
In bike projects, bicycles are repaired together with asylum seekers. Following that, the asylum seekers can use the bicycles. They will also be given training courses by the police and the German Automobile Club ADAC as to how to behave on a bike in road traffic. The project is supported by BASF SE.

Go for a walk (Stadtspaziergänge)
Citizens of Ludwigshafen, Mannheim and other towns nearby sometimes invite asylum seekers to go for a walk with them. Together, they visit sights of Ludwigshafen or cultural facilities like the Museum of Wilhelm Hack. The walks are organized by “Kultur-Rhein-Neckar e.V.”.
House of media education offers refugee minors work experience
The house of media education (Haus der Medienbildung) offers the opportunity to take part in a work experience together with German pupils to refugee minors who are between 14 and 18 years old. The work experience will take place over the course of two weeks. During that time, participants are going to learn what a digital media designer does and are going to produce audio and video reports for television. Participants will work in groups of two, one refugee and one German pupil. The idea of this work experience is not only to give the refugees a chance to get an idea of what kind of career to enter in the future, but also to have the opportunity to practice the German language. Those refugees who wish to take part in the training have to be able to speak German at a basic level (level should be A2). Experience in media design is not required. After completing the work experience, participants will receive a certificate. For further information please contact Katja Mayer, phone: 0621 9 63 49 80, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
