Project title: Promoting Entrepreneurship among Young People with Migrant Background, focusing on the Trade of Natural Products
Coordinator: DOUMAG LTD
Project lifetime: 01/05/2023 - 31/10/2024
Description: The NaturalOrigins Project aims to contribute to the facilitation of social inclusion of young people with migrant background through the development of entrepreneurial mindset that will equip them with all the necessary skills and knowledge to establish small-scale businesses that can benefit them on multiple levels. Entrepreneurship among young people of migrant background can offer both financial security and self resilience.
Throughout the lifetime of the project, we plan to create an Entrepreneurship Training Programme focused both on trainers in the field and young people with a migrant background. This training programme will be accessed through an Online Learning Space, a Digital e-learninig platform. At the same time we plan to implement multiple workshops for our aforementioned target groups. Finally, we, also, plan to create some Policy Recommendations in an effort to provide stakeholders and interested parties, including trainers working in the field of social inclusion, NGOs, migrant/refugee associations, local businesses, etc., with a set of detailed recommendations, methods, and tools on the utilisation of entrepreneurial upskilling to foster social inclusion of young people with migrant background and encourage cultural interaction with local communities.
