RAISING CAPACITY FOR INCLUSIVE PEOPLE ENGAGED IN PRIVATE SPONSORSHIP
This project is funded by the European Union's Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund.
About the Project
RaCIP will enhance capacity building for organisations operating Private Sponsorship (PS) schemes or otherwise engaged in community-based support to refugees’ integration. The project will feature several pilot schemes aimed at scaling up existing PS and strengthening community-based efforts by experimenting PS initiatives in the Member States involved.
Thanks to study visits and desk research the project will gather and analyse existing good practices to design training paths in the MS addressed to families, students, social entrepreneurs and CSOs participating in the pilot schemes.
The project will develop mentoring and peer-to-peer activities to provide refugees with social, educational and professional support throughout the settlement process. The project will facilitate access to the job market designing tailored vocational training for refugees. To ensure the correct implementation of the project and establish the basis for future replicability, a monitoring system will be developed. Monitoring activities will gather crucial information needed to develop an evaluation system in order to assess the relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of the project.
RaCIP's deliverables are created by a European consortium within the framework of the Asylum, Migration and Integration fund of the European Commission, whereby nine public and private organizations from five different countries participate (Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, France).
Exchange of Experience
Study visits have been an important part of our project, they gave partners the opportunity to discover the different contexts in which pilot schemes for private and community sponsorship are implemented.
The exchange of experiences and the opportunity to talk and engage directly with the project beneficiaries brings value to our activity and allows us to acquire good practices that we can replicate in our own territory.
