Why We Can?

The two-year European project WE CAN, funded by Erasmus+, aims to promote the socio-economic integration of migrants. 

The selected mentors in the project, who already have entrepreneurial work experience in these areas or work in the public sector or the independent sector focused on the social entreprenership of migrants, will train the participants during the project, strengthen their skills in this regard and closely accompany them in the process. 

The social innovation here is that in the mentoring program, needs-based solutions to the challenges of migrants in social entreprenership will be crystallized and addressed. The aim is to promote the professional and entrepreneurial skills of the migrants.

This project has been funded by the European Erasmus+ Fund of the European Union KA220-ADU-0264AF41
