sharehouse? An inspiring project in Berlin and...!!

How can we live heaven on earth? That was the question we faced in South Africa where we lived for 10 years. The Sharehouse was the answer, first an old fishermans house we renovated with friends and people we didn’t even know. We had little but we learned that sharing makes us all rich. The Sharehouse became a community, the garden a nursery, the living room a dj and music school and lecture hall where experience was shared. A carpentryshop opened, the garden developed into a small paradise with nursery and a lame and homeless drugaddict left the Sharehouse emotionally and physically healed.

Then Berlin happened. We had just moved when Andreas Schlamm from the Berliner Stadtmission initated with us the Berlin Sharehouse in May 2014 which led to our next project we started in July 2015, The Refugio, living and working with refugees.

Social Upcycling, thats one phrase we coined as we believe everybody has been given a great value and many talents, yet many have lost faith in that. At the Sharehouse all get together and share with respect what they’ve got as we try to live the greatness God sees in each one of us.
Nobody is poor or or unable, nobody needs to selfoptimize, we are live in an overflow when we start giving in community.

We live in great times and there is a great hunger for social justice, peace, recognition, values, family, a deeper meaning, purpose. We have many tell us that, and that the Sharehouse is different to the many other great social initiatives (We cooperate with many and even they say so). We dont have a program, an agenda, but to support each persons dream and purpose benefiting their city and society.
