Audi provides aid for refugees

Audi and the city of Ingolstadt are helping refugees to obtain German school qualifications and to qualify for vocational training. About 20 migrants aged 18 to 25 will be able to attend school for a total of 24 weeks starting in January 2016. Additional classes are already being planned for the coming school years. The automobile manufacturer is providing financial support for these lessons from its immediate aid fund for refugees. Since September, Audi employees at various of the company’s sites have initiated numerous support projects.

The school project in Ingolstadt aims specifically at where there is the biggest need for non-state support; because the 18‑25-year‑old participants will probably be allowed to stay in Germany, but there is a lack of places in suitable schools. This makes it very difficult for the migrants to obtain the required qualifications through the regular school system. That is why Audi is playing a major role in financing the 24‑week teaching for the young refugees. As well as the normal lessons in an occupational college, the timetable focuses on German lessons and social work for the young people, some of whom are traumatized. Lessons will be held five days a week and eight hours a day.
