Lend a Hand. Rome.
Professional training and job orientation for Italians and Migrants in need
‘Lend a Hand’ combines two former Nove Onlus’ initiatives – ‘Migrants in Training’, supporting asylum seekers, and ‘Lend a Hand to an Italian’, dedicated to vulnerable Italian families and individuals. This new project actually aims to offer training and job opportunities to vulnerable people of any nationality who need to achieve or to recover economic independence.
The project started in January 2019 by providing a professional course to train 12 beneficiaries of eight different nationalities (Burkina Faso, Guinea, Italy, Ivory Coast, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria and Perú) as sous-chefs. The course is held by the ‘Il Faro, di Susanna Agnelli’ Foundation, a training center that has a very strong background in this field. At the end of the training, the beneficiaries are given paid internships, which greatly broaden their employment prospects, allowing them to build on the skills acquired and to test them in a professional environment, as well as to expose them to potential employers.
