Bantabaa Community


Bantabaa e.V. was founded in Berlin Kreuzberg in 2015. Bantabaa means meeting place in the West African language Mandinka. As such, the association is committed to support and integration of refugees on many levels, meeting at eye level to hear their stories and help them take their future into their own hands - here or in their home country.

Food Dealer


With a social enterprise, we wanted to contribute to the integration of refugees into the labour market, to integrate refugees into the labour market. The project was carried out for three years. Some of the project participants were then able to start an apprenticeship. The Bantabaa Food Dealer restaurant at Wrangelstraße 82 is now run by Siyaka and Oli. An example of successful integration.
