Partner program - Friedenhaus Ludwigshafen

Community-building through language classes

“Building Community Learning Peace”

The Friedenhaus was lauched in early 2016. Its goal is to foster new relationships and a culture of peace in the surrounding neighborhood through educational and cultural programs. The organization believes that walls between people can be broken down, when people get to know each other. Friedenhaus strives to be a place where that happens.

At the moment, the emphasis of the work is with refugees in Ludwigshafen. Through German help sessions and other initiatives, volunteers work to help people learn the German language and build contact with their neighbors. In doing so, they hope to compliment other initiatives in the city.

Friedenhaus programs are made possible through the impressive work of volunteers. Friedenhaus is continually adding to its program and trying out new initiatives. It’s therefore worth it to check in every now and again to see what’s happening.

The programs of the Friedenshaus take place in the Ludwigshafen Mennonite Church. The Friedenshaus is a project of the regional Mennonite conference in the Rhineland-Palatinate. We are also supported by Mennonite churches in Canada.

Programs are open for everyone, regardless of denomination, religion, background or sexual orientation. Everyone can participate, and all may volunteer according to their gifts.
