under ERASMUS+ Programme.

Duration of the project: 24 months

Summary of the project

According to the EASO 80% of Nigerian women arrive in Italy has been the victim of sex trafficking. Italy appears to be one of the most common destinations for these women who are recruited with promises of a better life. Once arrived in Palermo they are victims of human trafficking, placed in the prostitution market that is for many of them a trap which it is impossible to escape from. Besides, in Palermo they have an even more disadvantaged situation: they are often victims of violence (both physical and psychological) and social exclusion, not having the opportunity either to get out of prostitution or to find a support to profit opportunities present in the territory, which are already perceived as limited.

The main idea is to insert an even more disadvantaged target as a follow-up of an active project “Pandora – discovering European opportunities for female entrepreneurship” with the aim of fostering self-determination and self-employment; through the development of a network to which they can refer in order to improve their level of training and undertake new paths in life.

The main goal of the new project “IRETI – Empowering Women and Strengthening Socioeconomic Integration” is to develop an educational path for disadvantaged women and to share best practices in the field of economic integration and female entrepreneurship. This project aspire at creating an international cooperation in order to ameliorate the impact of each partner organization and increase the employability and the entrepreneur spirit of women thanks to the sharing educational path and to the use of new tools and methods successfully experimented by the other partners.

The partners will be selected based on their experience in the specific field of adult education. The choice will take into account the expertise of each partner in order to create a complete framework including different aspects of education, work methods and specific tools.

During this 2 years long project, beyond three transnational partners meeting, the project will include specific learning mobility for the staff and two joint mobility for the women beneficiaries and staff in order to work together and make them exchange experience and ideas.

Relay Race Staff Mobility

The project foresees 4 long-term staff mobility (two months each) in order to give the chance to four volunteers/social workers/youth workers of each Association/Institution to work with another organisation and experience its tool and methodologies. During the mobility experience the person involved will be a part of the hosting organisation and will receive a training-on-the-job on the specific tool/instrument and a deeper knowledge of the methodology behind it. Once back the volunteers/social workers/youth workers will participate to a relay race moment with the next youth worker in order to pass him/her all the information about the mobility and will organize and coordinate the local activity concerning what he/she experienced during the mobility period.

Local Activities and activities for staff and target groups

The volunteers/social workers/youth workers who will experience the mobility will organize and coordinate the local teaching activity using tools and methodologies such as non-formal education. The local activities will last two months each and be divided in four different topics: ITC literacy, intercultural language learning, vocational courses and female entrepreneurship skills.

There will also be two short mobilities, which will involve the women beneficiaries and the staff members. The mobilities will take place after two local activities in order to give the chance to the disadvantaged women involved to meet other women with different background, context and experience and to share ideas for the future follow-up projects.

Consortium and sharing of best practicesThe main idea of this process is to build capacities and skills, on one hand to form volunteers/social workers/youth workers that operate in the social field targeting women and on the other hand to give disadvantaged women the opportunity to learn ITC and foreign language basis, to develop several competences and sense of entrepreneurship that are useful for their inclusion in the labour market.

The communication between partners will happen through emails and Skype call to organize and share information about the transnational meetings and mobilities.

The consortium priority is to share the best practices in the field of adult education and to enhance hard and soft skills of the two main target groups. The two targets will be also the main element for the dissemination activities of the project being an integral part of the project and a key to an integrated best practice view and application. The intellectual output of the project will be an online Platform, a Guideline book with all the methodologies and tools experienced during the project meetings.
