Father is important
This project offers group activities with the objective to support unemployed Arabic speaking fathers with positive parenting and job development. Through the project activities, we aim to encourage fathers to gain confidence and move forward according to their resources, explore their personal values and reflect on their position as a role model for their families. We link fathers and give them a space to share thoughts and concerns, reflect on being a dad and on the vital role they play in their family’s development, as well as make new friends and network.
Our activities are kid friendly to encourage men to bring their kids to spend quality time with them and to break the gender stereotyping view in the Arabic community where women are responsible for kids .
YouthUp: Elevating Skills for Tomorrow
Our “YouthUp: Elevating Skills for Tomorrow” project stems from a deep understanding of evolving youth needs. We envision a future where Arabic-speaking youth have equal opportunities for skill development and positive change. By empowering them with essential skills, we aim to facilitate their integration into Finnish society and foster a sense of belonging within the European Union. Through strategic design and alignment with the European Solidarity Corps objectives, we target Arabic-speaking youth in Finland, aiming to benefit our local community by creating empowered and engaged members. Our project strives to impact their lives and communities meaningfully, promoting sustainability and cultural exchange.
We push our youth to become change makers and future builders by supporting them with non-formal learning and important tools to think about the future of their region and global issues. Our projects are not only the mobility, but a combination of a partnership-building activity and study visit to provide youth with non-formal learning experiences through discovering, thinking, searching, and discussing.
Me and You are Global Citizens (MYGC) is our first Erasmus to Lebanon. 18 Arabic speaking young people had the opportunity to travel 10 days to Lebanon to develop their understanding of the tools of critical thinking, leadership, perseverance, confidence, and communication.
