Nearly 900,000 refugees came to Germany in the summer of 2015. One of them was Fasihullah Bismelzay who found an apprenticeship at Möller. A short story about how integration can succeed.
The 26-year-old Afghan came to Germany from Kabul in 2015 and has now an apprenticeship at Möller Medical for almost a year. “At the beginning, the integration was very difficult. But now I like it very much and I am happy that I got a chance here” says Fasihullah. Through language courses, which he received as part of an introductory qualification, he now also has a really good command of German. In his homeland Fasihullah has already studied for 2 years and worked as a warehouse expert. At Möller he is trained as a specialist in metal technology.
Although the different mentality and the language barrier are partly noticeable, training manager Christian Diel is surprised by the quick comprehension from Fasihullah.
Of course not all refugees learn equally fast. There is still a lot of integration work to be done. Regarding the shortage of skilled workers in this country, however, Fasihullah can be seen as a positive example.
