The word ‘foreigner’ seems to collect more the negative connotations, mostly connected to people who cannot adapt, nor making any contribution to their society. In this globalized world, there will be more and more people who do not live in the country where they were born, all with different reasons and circumstances. Vienna, as a rich and well-developed capital city of Austria has its charm to attract people to come.

Looking at this condition, KulturenReich decided to take part, to turn the gloomy perception into a positive experience. Be it educational purposes, to escape war, or to seek better prospects, KulturenReich offers a different standpoint to recognise foreigners especially women to integrate into society and make positive contribution. Founded officially in January 2018 by foreign-born Viennese women themselves, KulturenReich understands the challenges and steps to do when a woman moves to Vienna. As a social enterprise, we are committed to inspire foreign-born women to be independent and successful, thus contributing positively to the integration process.

Man muss an sich selbst glauben. Das ist das Geheimnis.
