The #migrants4migrants initiative requires ASSOC to act as a link between migrants and the society, providing the best support in all fields of adaptation: accommodation, work, health and education, just to mention the main ones.
This initiative is particularly relevant for our organization, since it offers us the opportunity to develop not only new professional knowledge, but also personal skills. In fact, in order to be helpful for migrants, it is necessary for us to develop qualities such as open-mindedness, active listening, tolerance towards different cultures and empathy. “Migrants for Migrants” encourages us to enhance our personal characteristics and to use them in a positive and constructive way, making them available to help others.
«On this International Migrants Day, let us seize the opportunity of the recovery from the pandemic to implement the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, reimagine human mobility, enable migrants to reignite economies at home and abroad and build more inclusive and resilient societies.» - UN Secretary-General António Guterres
The Migrants for Migrants initiative is particularly relevant today due to the need to contribute to the integration of migrants in partner countries, providing the best support in all fields of adaptation (accommodation, work, health, education, others).
The various partners involved in the different countries (Portugal, Romania, France, Greece, and Austria), started by analyzing the reality of migrants in their countries and know the practices that already exist, by completing an online questionnaire by the entities responsible for practices and research. It's available in English, for consult "Evidence review on the current of the conditions and services offered of newly-arrived migrants"
