Project Integrated

projectintegrated

Project Integrated is one of our major initiatives, through which we are supporting the integration of refugees and migrants and also raising awareness on the risk of poverty faced by these communities.

The project, on-going since 2015, works on two strands and is currently support by UNHCR Malta and the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation:

  1. Refugee integration;
  2. Dignified living for refugees and migrants.

Refugee Integration

Timeframe:

1 January 2017 – 31 December 2017.

Project Partners:

aditus foundation, Integra Foundation and JRS Malta.

Supported by:

This project is supported by UNHCR Malta.

Project Integrated seeks to target the integration of beneficiaries of international protection through the provision of coordinated support by the three partner NGOs.

The overall goals of this strand of the project are that its beneficiaries are fully integrated in Maltese society. This is being achieved through:

  • service provision, namely legal assistance, psycho-social support, information-provision, and initial integration assistance;
  • stakeholder meetings with mainstream service-providers to identify issues of concern and formulate solutions;
  • meetings with refugee communities in order to engage in dialogue, information-sharing and empowerment-support; and
  • high-level round-tables to foster policy environment that is supporting of refugee integration.

Our specific role in the project is to provide support to those persons requiring in-depth legal support, through our Pro Bono Unit, to organise and contribute to the stakeholder meetings, and to engage with refugees through the community sessions.

Dignified Living

Timeframe:

1 March 2017 – 28 February 2019.

Project Partners:

aditus foundation and JRS Malta.

Supported by:

This project is supported by Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation.

The overall aim of this strand is that migrants and refugees are able to live with dignity and enjoy equal access to rights and opportunities. This is being achieved through:

  • service provision, namely legal assistance, psycho-social support, information-provision, and initial integration assistance;
  • the creation of an employment support programme aimed at supporting women to access employment;
  • qualitative research on the impact of poverty and social exclusion on the well-being of refugees;
  • advocacy and communications strategy aimed at bringing to light the challenges faced by migrants and refugees living in poverty.

Our specific role in the project is to provide support to those persons requiring in-depth legal support, through our Pro Bono Unit, to provide input to the research and to coordinate the project’s advocacy activities.
