Project description

Breakdown The Wall is an EVS project to be held in Italy on the issues of migration, integration and EU citizenship. The project involves 2 volunteers aged 18-27 years from Bulgaria and Ireland. SEYF is managing a Center for Refugees and Asylum seekers where we host 40 young refugees: here, we provide for all the basic needs of the migrants. The project idea is to promote good practices of integration through the use of intercultural dialogue and cultural expression: this will happen by collecting stories of local migrants , setting up activities for fostering integration between Community and migrants and, in the meanwhile, for stimulating a wider sense of EU citizenship among the local community. Objectives: -To foster better understanding of the procedures of reception of asylum seekers -To build interactive moments for foreign citizens that are being hosted in the reception centres in the area of Montesano. -To support movement of opinion, through practices easily replicable.
