An innovative program to support young migrants and refugees organized by the municipality of Larnaca
An innovative action is being organized by the Municipality of Larnaca as a part of the “Open Society” program which aims to integrate refugees and migrants into the local community. The Municipality of Larnaca is the coordinating partner of the “Open Society” project and has commissioned the implementation of this action at CSI (Center for Social Innovation).This course will educate young people with “migrant biography” about personal empowerment and provide guidance for their professional careers. These young people need social support to integrate more smoothly into the local society, culture, economy, and social life.
The action involves acquiring practical knowledge and developing skills that will help to their future professional careers. Children will acquire new skills, along with the socio-cultural and linguistic skills from their countries of origin. The results of the action will be presented at the completion of training in Summer 2020.
Open Society program includes other activities in Larnaca that will bring the refugee and migrant communities closer to the municipality and the local society, it also includes activities in Pafos and Geroskipou.
The program is co – funded by the European Asylum, Migration and Refugee Fund Integration (90%) and the Republic of Cyprus (10%).
