Social inclusion of asylum seekers/refugees

Background: After the big emigration wave in the last few years, it is necessary for the new citizens to be integrated successfully and most of all feel included.

Purpose: Therefore the group of seniors work towards better inclusion around Pau territory by supporting and mentoring the asylum seekers/refugees. This means for the asylum seekers and refugees to feel a part of the community.

The project will for example benefit:

  • To find a way to make them feel useful knowing that they are not allowed to work
  • To raise their self-esteem
  • To create conditions for an exchange with the local population
