We have been working with counseling and mentoring for immigrants since 2009. During 2010, we wrote and got financing from the Swedish Youth Organization to execute a professional mentoring project (yrkesinriktat mentorskap), which has added a lot of knowhow and strength for Integration in Sweden to grow and support many people.
Our journey started in schools, where we were spreading the word about our project and our work.
Our Language Café at Linnaeus University gathered a lot of curious people willing to exchange linguistic knowledge, friendship, contacts and ideas.
Elisabeth & Raed
Between 2010-2012, our professional mentoring project was on Swedish Radio.
Elisabeth and Raed was a successful pair who exchanged a lot of knowledge, wisdom, contact and ideas.
Besides working with professional integration, we also focused on social integration and involved students at Linnaeus University.
Eslam was one of the participants in our mentoring project who started his IT business. His perseverance shows that it is possible to do it if you want it!
