Short description of the event:

The WEMIN Project proposes the implementation of a series of interventions for the empowerment and integration of Migrant and Refugee Women (MRW) in eight partner countries ( Hellenic Open University (HOU) – DAISSy Research Group is the Coordinator and “Olympic Training Ltd” is a project partner in Greece.
More specifically regarding WEMIN actions in Greece and as far as training is concerned, fourteen MRW joined the first training circle (ended on 12th March 2019) which took place at the premises of a public primary school in Athens (address: Meandroupoleos 42, Ampelokipi, GR 115 24 Athens, Greece). It was supported by the Municipality of Athens within its initiative entitled “Open Schools” which is funded by “Stavros Niarchos Foundation” and “JohnS. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation”.
The training activity put emphasis on learning key elements of the Greek language (related to tasks to be carried out in everyday life) and key aspects of socio-cultural life and values of Greek society. It is noteworthy, that MRW familiarized with ICT by using tablets, navigating on the internet, identifying Greek language learning software that is already available for free on the internet, etc. Furthermore, they used the provided ICT equipment for exploiting the WEMIN e-platform which serves as a tool for MRW and the host community to implement collaborative activities with the help of tutors. At a next stage they will participate in forum discussions, create blog posts, upload episodes and announcements related to integration etc.

Training as well as the use and enrichment of the e-platform are undergoing activities of WEMIN project – the second training circle is expected to be launched in mid April 2019. The familiarization with digital tools and their exploitation will be part of the upcoming training circle as well.
