Project Description

We are dedicated to empowering migrant women in rural areas, aiming to equip them with essential skills to integrate successfully into education and employment opportunities. Our project embraces a whole-community and bottom-up approach, fostering collaboration among various stakeholders who share a common vision of empowering rural women migrants.

Our Vision

"Together We Can" brings together businesses, community leaders, public institutions, and educational stakeholders in a forward-looking transnational network. This collaborative effort aims to inspire and enable migrant women to become active agents in community-oriented actions and initiatives, driving positive change and empowerment.

Objectives

At the heart of "Together We Can" is a holistic approach to inclusion. Through training and partnerships, we bring together rural migrant women and local stakeholders to build basic skills and key competencies, opening doors to lifelong learning, personal fulfillment, and integration into various spheres of life, including education, training, and employment.

WORK PACKAGES

Our project management approach is designed to ensure the effective implementation of project activities and the successful achievement of our objectives. This approach covers three crucial areas:

Administrative and Financial Management:

The lead partner takes responsibility for budget control and time management, ensuring that all partners understand financial reporting and expenses.

Progress Review and Monitoring:

We maintain a project timetable (Gantt Chart) as a reference for all activities and events, allowing us to stay on track.

Quality Assurance:

To handle potential risks, we develop a risk management plan. This plan involves collecting partner feedback, identifying potential risks, and implementing measures to mitigate them.

 

We integrate digital tools and learning methods into the project, promoting cooperation among partners and enhancing accessibility and inclusivity in various project activities. Our approach ensures efficient communication, monitoring, and evaluation, ultimately supporting the success of the project.

METHODOLOGY

Objectives:

– Best Practice Benchmark: We aim to identify and establish a benchmark of best practices for collecting, processing, and using European experiences related to local integration strategies for migrant women.

– Knowledge Sharing: We want to provide comprehensive information about these best practices, making it easier for our partners to share knowledge and encourage the adoption of these successful solutions across the EU.

– Policy Enhancement: We’ll also focus on finding gaps in existing policies that support migrant women. Our objective is to create tailored, adaptable, and transferable solutions and methodologies based on these best practices.

– Empowerment: Ultimately, we strive to develop an actionable methodology that recognizes migrant women as active contributors in their inclusion processes. Our aim is to shift perceptions and inspire a more inclusive approach to migrant participation in local integration strategies.

Results – Here’s what you can expect from the results of Work Package no.2:

– Best Practice Benchmark: We’ll establish a benchmark of best practices, providing a wealth of information and facilitating knowledge sharing among our partners.

– Policy Improvements: By identifying gaps in existing policies, we’ll develop customized solutions based on the best practices we uncover.

– Empowering Migrant Women: Our work will empower migrant women, recognizing their vital role in inclusion processes and promoting their active involvement in local integration strategies.

– Innovative Programs: We’re also dedicated to addressing the methodological gap in adult education. This will contribute to innovative programs that support the inclusion of migrant women in rural areas, specifically in education, employment, and training.

LEARNING AND TRAINING SCHEME

Objectives:

In Work Package no.3, we play a vital role in connecting the groundwork laid in WP2 with the valuable contributions of stakeholders in WP4. Our key objectives are to take the knowledge and best practices developed in WP2 and turn them into practical training content. Here’s what we aim to achieve:

Empowerment: We want to empower migrant women living in rural areas by providing them with valuable training.

Stakeholder Capacity: We’ll also enhance the capacity of stakeholders who work on integration and inclusion issues.

Socio-Economic Inclusion: Our goal is to improve the socio-economic inclusion of migrant women who participate in our program.

Local Integration Strategies:

We aim to contribute to the development of sustainable local integration strategies in rural areas. Through collaborative efforts and a customized transnational training approach, WP3 is dedicated to creating an actionable, practical, transferable, and replicable Integration Pilot Program. Our aim is to ensure the active and equal participation of all parties involved and to facilitate positive outcomes for migrant women in rural communities.

Results: Enhanced Knowledge:

Adult educators, trainers, and institutions working with migrant women have gained a wealth of knowledge through a custom Handbook developed exclusively for the “Together We Can” learning and training program.

Increased Capacity: Adult educators, trainers, and institutions have expanded their capabilities through transnational training, enabling them to effectively guide the local integration pilot program within the “Together We Can” initiative.

Improved Inclusion and Integration:

Migrant women living in rural areas have experienced notable improvements in their inclusion and integration. This positive transformation is a direct result of their active participation in the “Together We Can” learning and training program, hosted by empowering communities in WP4.

Mobilized Participation: The program has successfully mobilized the participation of migrant women in education, employment, and training opportunities. This mobilization is facilitated by their active involvement in the “Together We Can” learning and training program in WP4.

Addressing Challenges: The program has addressed various challenges faced by migrant women, encompassing professional, economic, social, and cultural aspects of their lives, all within the framework of the “Together We Can” learning and training program.

Measurable Impact:

Rigorous and participatory impact monitoring has been implemented to track and measure a tangible increase in the participation and engagement of migrant women within rural communities.

Enhanced Sustainability: Efforts have been made to significantly enhance the transferability, viability, and long-term sustainability of the “Together We Can” learning and training program. In summary, the outcomes of Work Package #3 are dedicated to empowering migrant women, fostering their inclusion, and leaving a lasting positive impact on their lives and communities.

Work package n°4 - THE "TOGETHER WE CAN" FORWARD-LOOKING EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES: A ROADMAP TO INCLUSIVE POLICY FRAMEWORKS Objective

The main objectives of WP4 are to bridge the gap in adult education for empowering migrant women in rural areas and promote their holistic integration into social, economic, and educational life. This is achieved through the engagement of multiple stakeholders, including community leaders, public institutions, nonprofit organizations, and businesses, to collectively understand and address the needs of migrant women. The development of forward-looking empowering communities aims to support migrant women's active engagement within their communities, involve relevant stakeholders at the local level, strengthen collaboration between target groups, and leverage community competences and resources to recommend policy solutions. Additionally, WP4 aims to ensure stakeholders' long-term commitment and engagement, creating a sustainable impact that extends beyond the project's lifespan. Ultimately, WP4 contributes to the establishment of a community for the empowerment of rural migrant women, fostering their inclusion and support within their local environments.

Results:

Enhanced civic engagement of stakeholders. Increased understanding of program objectives and migrant women's needs through consultations. Expanded life-wide learning and employment opportunities for rural migrant women. Mobilized stakeholders for creating empowering communities. Strengthened synergies between stakeholders and migrant women. Enhanced attitude shift towards empowerment and inclusion. Contribution to sustainable empowering communities in rural areas. Mobilized policy solutions for active inclusion in adult education for migrant women's needs.
