The project covers various aspects of everyday life coupled with cultural initiatives, facilitating access to rights and equal opportunites. On the premise that active participation in the social interaction leads to integration, the Project capitalizes upon tools and practices created by the Partners during their long experience in the field (including empowering and transformative support services and training methods); it aims at upgrading them so as to create a space where active participation of women will have hands-on results in terms of integration-via-social interaction. The partnership has adopted features of the action-research methodology to succeed in providing a model intervention encompassing the concept mentioned above, also having the potential to serve policy making purposes and be wider implemented. As such project objectives include:
· Develop an innovative pilot intervation scheme, fostering active participation of women- thrid country nationals in educational and social activities, also creating the realm for positive social interaction leading to integration
· Build capacity of
· migrant women to actively participate in social life through empowerment, training and skills upgrade
· professionals in the field of integration, enhancing their ability to leverage participation of third country nationals in social interaction.
The model comprehensive intervention is encompassed in the Project’s final outcomes (guidelines, training material etc), thus allowing for greater impact to be gained: contributing to the sharing of experiences of initiatives and capacity building across EU we hope that the Project’s initiative will be further adopted and multiplied.
