This week we had the great opportunity to visit the Monaliiku team, winner of the best practice in inclusive employment 2022.
Together with the team from Acción contra el Hambre, Plan International Spain, the Green Employment and Entrepreneurship Platform and CARDET, we have traveled to Helsinki to learn about the Mentor on the Move program and other initiatives such as Fit for Life with which Monaliiku promotes the inclusion of migrant women through sport and mentoring.
And to prove these effects, we were lucky enough to have Ayisat Yusuf-Aromire, a former professional soccer player who participated in the 2007 Women's World Cup and the 2008 Summer Olympics, give us a master class in Kangoo jumps!
In addition, we were able to reflect on the barriers that women and more specifically, migrant women, have to overcome for their incorporation into the labor market together with the organizations MONIKA - Multicultural Women's Association, The Finnish Confederation of Russian Speakers, The Finland-Syria Friendship Association and The Finnish Multicultural Network.
A fantastic experience to learn about the impact of healthy approaches to employability and the fundamental role of mentoring and connections with the environment for the integration process.
