R.E.A.L. project - "Refugee Exchange, Advocacy and Leadership"
Updated: Feb 20
R.E.A.L. is a project that aims to virtually bring together refugees, asylum seekers and stateless advocates across the Europe region to exchange knowledge and experiences and work on enhancing self-advocacy and leadership skills.
R.E.A.L. is a project created by New Women Connectors and European Coalition for Migrants and Refugees with UNHCR and will function as a platform for capacity building of refugee-led organisations, refugee leaders, volunteers and representatives in Europe.
In spite of a multitude of positive practices at national and local level, most refugee-led organizations, volunteers, outreach workers and personnel have limited opportunities for exchange and capacity building, or to share experiences, network and ensure learning across different contexts. Therefore, the impact and effectiveness of refugee-led initiatives in Europe can be strengthened through enhanced collaboration across contexts and through the more systematic sharing of lessons learned. This project aims to reach this objective.
The project consists of 3-5 online knowledge exchanges and info transfers that migrant, refugee and stateless community leaders will select and engage in as participants and experts.
This is for you if you are a Self Led Organization, initiative, project, civil movement, or any leading any type of active participation in your new community
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT WILL BE SHARED IN THE KICKOFF EVENT
