The 1st Newsletter of ‘SMART Volunteering’ is a fact! What ‘SMART Volunteering’ is?

The SMART Volunteering for Female Migrants is a multi-agency cooperation project, between civil society, business community and migrant women in five European states, designed to promote better integration and active participation of Third Country National (TCN) females in socio-economic life of European societies.

Based on the empirical evidence of the barriers to integration faced by migrant women, the project builds on the innovative practices and tools developed in the business, promotion and civil advocacy sectors adjusting them to the grass root needs of TCN females, with an aim to create a structured corridor for up-scaling and transfer of migrant women’s skills between the two sectors.
