Focussing on the essential.
to the Association of Binational Families and Partnerships!
Our concern is the intercultural coexistence in Germany and to develop an awareness of equal rights. We support binational and multicultural couples and families. Our responsibilities are in the following areas:
in legal, psychosocial and intercultural areas
Communication and dialogue
for people who find themselves in an intercultural situation
intercultural education, multilingualism, intercultural learning
against racism and discrimination
More and more people are living in binational families and relationships where cultures and languages are mixed. It is not something special for these families, it is their everyday life.
In Germany, binational are those:
- Men and women whose partner comes from another country and/or culture
- People living in a same sex relationship and are binational
- Germans and not Germans living in two or more cultures
- Children and young people who have two nationalities
… and many more who feel at home in one or more countries and have a multicultural family, relatives and friends.
Who we are
In 1974 our Munich office started as a ‘self-help group’ and in 1986 we became recognized as a binational couple and family advice centre offering professional support.
Our Association of Binational Families and Partnerships, iaf e.V. works all over Germany supporting binational and ever increasing numbers of multicultural families. Our main office is located in Frankfurt am Main and was founded in 1972. We have offices in 23 towns in Germany.
