INTEGR8 – “Harnessing the potential of migrant women as integration experts”
INTEGR8 is a new project being developed by seven organisations across Europe with the aim of training migrant women to become champions of integration in their communities.
The project aspires to provide migrant women with the opportunity to develop skills and to build their confidence so that they can in-turn empower others; helping other migrant women to feel more accepted and integrated into the host communities, to access basic services and to learn about their rights and entitlements in the host/ receiving countries.
Working in partnership with local migrant support agencies, education providers, migrant women’s’ networks and migrant women individually, project partners will develop a suite of training materials and will deliver this training locally between December 2016 and November 2018. This training will be delivered through a series of practical workshops, networking and social events, and with the support of a dedicated online platform where trainees can access e-learning modules and integration resources.
The INTEGR8 consortium consists of the following organisations from across Europe: Meath Partnership – IRELAND; CARDET – CYPRUS; ISQ Formação – PORTUGAL; University of Pitesti – ROMANIA; Learning Unlimited – UNITED KINGDOM; FormAzione Co&So Network – ITALY; and Jugend am Werk – AUSTRIA.
