Summary of the project
The refugee and migrant crisis consists one of the biggest challenges Europe is facing nowadays. In the last years there was a continued arrival of refugees coming from Syria, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Iraq and Eritrea, among others. These people are facing many difficulties to cross EU external borders. Many of the countries from where the partners of Future Target come from are having numerous arrivals of refugees and migrants (e.g. more than 174.000 have arrived in Greece and more than 181,000 in Italy) and more than 5.000 people already lost their lives trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea. The help of NGOs and associations is every day more necessary to work in parallel with public authorities. Future Target believes that in order to improve the situation, it is necessary to find, understand and share good practices to have the opportunity to apply them in local territories, offering best services and guiding the population to the acceptance, inclusion and positive response towards humanitarian needs.
For this reason, this project has planned activities which could support not only the partner organizations but also the local communities, the migrants and the refugees. The main activities are such as trainings, workshops, seminars and project meetings. Through them, the project aims to improve the present knowledge and the capacity to react at local/regional level, as well as to increase the quality of life of the migrants and refugees by working on their integration in local communities.
Some of the expected activities and outcomes of Future Target are:
– Face to face interviews with refugees & asylum seekers (10 per country).
– Interviews with other organizations working for refugees/migrants (10 per country).
– Guide of Good practices: Definition of the best 15 practices on integration of refugees and migrants.
– 6 festivals of Foreign Cultures where the food, drinks and traditions of migrant communities will be shown.
