International students in Germany often grapple with challenges like language barriers, cultural integration issues, financial constraints, and complex bureaucratic processes. These difficulties can lead to feelings of isolation, hinder academic performance, and impact mental health.
These issues make it less attractive for these skilled workers to remain in Germany – as many of them wish to do. Donating to non-profits supporting international students is crucial as it promotes inclusivity, diversity, and a more enriching educational experience.
Research shows that investing in diversity means investing in the economy. Donors can actively contribute to the breaking down of barriers and the creation of a globally connected community, emphasizing the value of diverse experiences within Germany.
We encourage everyone to learn more about Germany’s need for international students and the barriers these students face on our Stay Informed page.
