United and Different


The project consists of a series of integrated interventions aiming at the acceptance and socio-labor insertion of Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

Refugees are a special category of immigrants who have a special legal status (according to art. 1 of the Geneva Convention) “to anyone with founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, his membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, unwilling to ask protection of that country “.Despite the sharp increase in asylum requests registered in 2016, the percentage of refugees in Italy compared to the total population is low (about 0.2% of the population, for a total of about 120,000 people).

The main countries of origin of migrants landed in Europe are Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Nigeria and Somalia.

In particular the integrated action of reception and socio-employment will be created in Rome in Via degli Etruschi 7 in the International ENGIM NGO headquarters through:
• reception and orientation activities.

  • Training activity.
  • Traineeships.
  • active job search activities.
  • educational / cultural visits.
  • Activities raising awareness.
  • Activities of cultural inclusion .


General Objectives

A. To affirm the rights / duties and promote social and labor integration of young people, especially the more socially disadvantaged such as refugees and asylum seekers.
B. To avoid that the immigration problem would turn into a problem of violence and lawlessness.
C. To spread the culture of welcome and brotherhood.

Specific Objectives

The project aims to accommodate and accompany every year at least 20 young refugees and asylum seekers towards full social inclusion. This means removing the danger of lawlessness people who are already in Italy but that without such intervention, would find no job and no prospects even to survive.
