Empowering migrant women through building entrepreneurship skills

Encouragement of migrant women entrepreneurship skills is one of the easiest way to create job for themselves, but the courses are mostly

focused on language skills and education. Migrant women need support in their integration in the labor market.

The project is focused on developing migrant women competencies and their successful integration into socio-economic life.
