My daddy is coming

Mein Papa kommt, in English My daddy is coming, is a unique Germany-based initiative for separated parents and their children in a multi-locality setting. A parent-child relationship that is maintained after the separation of the parents is of paramount importance for the future development of the child, who has to cope with this significant change. Our services for non-resident fathers and non-resident mothers include:


Honorary private hosts in our Mein Papa kommt community offer accommodation at your child's place of residence and across Germany. You can have regular contact with your child despite the geographical distance and your financial constraints. 

Temporary children's room

In a temporary children's room of a local kindergarten or of a private host, you can have undisturbed quality time with your child to tinker, cuddle or play during weekends - almost like at home! 



Mein Papa kommt offers parental coaching tailored to your needs, and practical help for everyday life that takes into account the special demands of a multi-locality family setting.  


Since May 2018 Dr. Franziska Giffey, Federal Minister of Family Affairs, is Patron of our initiative. In 2012 Mein Papa kommt was honored by German Chancellor Angela Merkel as prize winner in the startsocial competition. Mein Papa kommt is a service provided by Flechtwerk 2+1 gGmbH, a non-profit organisation with a strong expertise in multi-locality family settings. Flechtwerk 2+1 gGmbH is funded by donations and private grants. Check our FAQ for more information about us and our services.

The idea and our vision

In 2008 little Sven approached Annette Habert, founder of Mein Papa kommt, and asked for help. Since the separation, his father spent the nights sleeping in the car every time he came to visit Sven. He could not afford the accommodation expenses. So during wintertime, as it was too cold to sleep in the car, Sven rarely saw his father. Soon Annette Habert recognized that the situation of Sven's father was not an isolated case - the idea of Mein Papa kommt was born.


Many children in Germany live hundreds of kilometers apart from one parent, who sometimes even resides abroad. Far from every father and mother can afford the travelling and accommodation expenses that arise due to the geographical distance. And often the non-resident father or mother lacks the supporting network of friends and family at the child's domicile.


Our vision is a society in which children can remain in a meaningful relationship with both parents after separation and despite geographical distances and financial constraints. We believe that children have a right to two parents.
