Workshop with refugees and service providers in Toender Kommune, Denmark

In April the Municipality of Toender and University College South Denmark (UC SYD) invited social service providers, volunteer organizations, local business people and refugees to participate in a workshop with focus on how we can work together on empowering refugees in the area.

The energy and the commitment from the 28 participants were high while they discussed which groups among the refugees are most vulnerable and how to deal with issues regarding language learning, jobs, guidance, family and the Danes.

The result of the workshop is 11 people joining our local empowerment group (LEN) in Toender Kommune and a list of good ideas which the LEN can develop micro projects from. To just mention a few: A newcomer course on how to live in an apartment in Denmark and where to buy cheap food, start a book-club, tell the story of those who gets a job, make a movie on “rules” in Denmark, food nights.

We are optimistic on starting up micro projects with refugees in the area.
