Afghan Women in Europe

Sustainable Integration for Afghan Women in the European Labor Market Project Number: 2017-1-DE02-KA204-004269

Project Discription 




The number of refugees sparked in Europe in recent years. Afghans are one of the largest among them. Therefore, there is a substantial need for their integration measures. With our project, we want to contribute to the support gender dimension of the immigration by supporting only Afghan women migrants and build professional capacity and educational capacities to enabling enter to the EU labour market. We will exchange our good practices and we want to develop new guidelines and programs to help Afghan women migrants. This is significantly important to support them and enhance their key capacities in order to enter the EU labor market. 

The main objective of our project is to seek ways and exchange our practices on how to help Afghan women to achieve and gain relevant and high quality skills and competences. Afghan women need to be prepared before applying to a job and start working outside of their homes and in a workplace. Cooperation will involve an exchange of methods and practices to broaden and strengthen our competencies at European level. We will look at the situations around Afghan women migrants in the individual partner countries and elaborate solutions to the problems of their key capacities (socio-educational and professional), number and the profile of the participant. 

The project management and coordination will be carried out by the partner from Germany and the task of disseminating project results will be transferred to all project partners. Throughout the project, there will be four transnational project meetings, which will be used to cope with the existing capacities and resources to be used, to develop plans for learning exchange of good practices and to develop a network with participating partner organizations. The core aim of our activities is the exchange of good practices among project partners in order to develop new guidelines, methods, and programs to help Afghan women migrants entering to the European labour market. There also will be three workshops designed for the second year in which we will discussed which methods and guidelines we will develop to support Afghan women migrants on their socio-educational and professional developments. 

Methods of implementation of the project: In our methodology for this project we are planning to make sure a mechanism of planning, developing, controlling, and delivering set up for the project to make sure project partners involve and implement their tanks accordingly.

 The core theme for the project is coordination between the partners on implementation, quality check and outcomes of the project, results and effects. The intercultural competence of the participants should be strengthened as well as openness for processes at European level in connection with the work in the area of Afghan women in Europe. The established network of internal and external partners will be used to discuss the possibilities and methods of education for Afghan migrants and to promote the dissemination of the project results achieved. Potential long-term benefits. The current and future needs of the Afghan women migrants are taken into account in the project. The established network will remain stable and active even after completion of the project. Other projects can also benefit long-term from the project results achieved and the nature of the project.
