CURRENT PROJECTS

MigraCode Coding School

By first supporting them with the development of advanced programming skills, the project then connects these groups to the labour market and therewith supports their long-term integration.

Language classes

In our Cultural Center in the heart of Barcelona we offer a wide range of free language classes for members of our organisation (membership is only 10 euros a month). While for instance the Spanish classes are given by locals, many of the other classes are given by refugees or migrants who have arrived in Barcelona.

I really enjoyed my job because I was able to talk to people, listen to their problems and use my skills to help them. I also worked as a legal secretary for six months and in customer service. Up until now everything was fine in my life.
