KEBiK- Competent Parents for the Education of their Children

The project "KEBiK – Kompetente Eltern für die Bildung ihrer Kinder (Competent Parents for the Education of their Children)" has set itself the goal of empowering immigrant parents to support their children's education, to provide information about the German education system in multiple languages, and to inform about existing local education services.The aim is to address existing inequalities in education and participation of migrant children. The project takes place as part of the funding program "Demokratie leben!". The project is carried out by the Bundeselternnetzwerk der Migrantenorganisationen für Bildung und Teilhabe e.V. (bbt).

The website provides information in several languages on issues related to education (e.g., finding a place in a daycare center, changing schools, etc.). Multilingual online counseling is also offered. The counseling supports parents and refers them to local parent initiatives or counseling centers for advice or to get involved in parent activities.

In the future, local parent initiatives will be also supported and events will be offered on topics such as information about migrant parent associations, language support and multilingualism.

The offer is primarily aimed at immigrant parents, guardians and family members. Non-immigrant parents and other multipliers can also benefit from the offer.

The Bundeselternnetzwerk der Migrantenorganisationen für Bildung und Teilhabe e.V. sees itself as an advocacy group and voice for immigrant parents in Germany. It aims to reduce barriers to parental participation in the care and education system and advocates for more educational justice and equal opportunities. The member organizations of the bbt and their local members are the basis for the KEBiK project in terms of expertise, experience and network.

The project duration is from 01.01.2020 to 31.12.2024.
