About ALMIT Project

Europe is facing unprecedented challenges due to the current refugee crisis which became emblematic of the strenuous efforts of the EU Member States, to cope with it. The effective way to meet the challenges in long run is responding to needs of refugees and migrants, through their integration in labor market  thereby ensuring their right to work and dignified life. In light of that, the main goal of project is to contribute to the integration as a key element in ensuring quality of life and the future of refugees and migrants.

The ALMIT project aims to find a quick way for the inflow into the labor market of the immigrants and refugees, through mapping skills and training, as well as reducing languages and cultural barriers between migrants and local community.  Objectives of this project are mapping and profiling skills of migrants and refugees in order to match them with needs of local labor market, and also to provide counseling and support on the settlement and job seeking issues.
