Supporting Refugees with Language and Entrepreneurship

Learnmera Oy in Espoo, Finland brings you the project IntegrAction – Action for socio-economic integration of refugees and asylum seekers.

IntegrAction is an Erasmus+ funded project involving five organisations from four European countries: Learnmera in Finland, KMOP and IED in Greece, and Jobs4Refugees in Germany and is coordinated by ANOLF Marche in Italy.

The project is directed towards migrants, refugees and asylum seekers and promotes social and economic inclusion. Integration has achieved two of its three objectives.

The first being Tool4aLLs: A Toolkit on digital tools for Literacy and Language proficiency. Tool4aLLs is an index of national digital tools and instruments for literacy and strengthening of linguistic skills. The output also includes extensive national research done in each partnering country about online tools available for linguistic instruction. Tools4Alls is now accessible on the project website here.

The second is Immigrants in the Labour Market, a manual to facilitate refugee and migrant entrepreneurship designed to support newcomers to understand the steps necessary to create their own business. The manual is thoroughly researched and country-specific for each partnering country. It can be downloaded in English from the project website here.

The third intellectual output is Webdoc – Migrant Diaries. This will take shape as a digital storytelling course with migrants and refugees, resulting in a compilation video of digital stories produced by participants. The course will take place at Arbis, Dagmarsgatan 3, 00100 Helsinki on the 4th and the 11th of October 2021 from 18:30 – 20:00. A registration form for the event can be filled out here.

A multiplier event and Cultural Café will be held in Helsinki for the results so far achieved by the project on Thursday 23 September 2021 from 18:00 – 19:00 at Apollo Street Bar, Mannerheimintie 16, 00101 Helsinki, with 25 people + press expected to attend. You can view the Facebook event here.
