About Program

Help the refugee and migrant community to gain a foothold in Europe by supporting shelters.

Organisations that work specifically with migrants and refugees in Italy and Naples generally have limited resources and rely heavily on local and international volunteer support to run their various initiatives.

These organisations require volunteer support in a wide variety of activities such as administration, management skills, and community workshops, supporting migrants with their daily activities and needs, cleaning, food distribution, event organisation, research, communication, and outreach. Daily volunteer tasks vary as required by the organisation in which volunteers are placed and according to their current initiatives. Volunteers with relevant experience can be given the opportunity to participate in counselling and legal support for migrants seeking humanitarian asylum.

Program Impact

The organisations that operates at the territory host hundreds of refugees. Their primary job is to provide legal and psychological support to the asylum seekers during their application process and support them in obtaining documents, permits and access to public services. In particular, the organisations have to deal with the frequent long delays in the application process by the Territorial Commissions, delays that can last up to two years. Addressing this “limbo state” is the hardest and most complicated job for these organisations. Often they have to deal with financial difficulties (due to the inherent delays of payments by the P.A.) and the pressure to accommodate more guests due to the intensification of the migratory flow. As a result they find themselves with a significant amount of work whilst having to ensure services without having the necessary resources and adequate staff. The most effective impact would be in improving the services, helping the organisations to build networks, researching best practice and planning new interventions. These are usually the most penalized activities in day-to-day management and in times of emergency.

My time at centro Nana

I did 10 weeks of volunteer work at centro Nana in Napoli, a centre that works with minor migrants and tries to help them integrate in Italian/European society. It was not always easy, as the language barrière was quite an issue, not only with the migrants but also with the staff. I speak english en french, so I could talk with some of the migrants and a part of the staff, but it was not always easy. Yet I really enjoyed my time here and I leave again with a great feeling, as I learned a lot. Not only from the way they work at the centre and what they do, but also from the migrants themselves. It was great to Get to know them and very interesting to talk with them. I leave napoli with a lot of information and a great experience. Also at the appartement where we stayed at in napoli together with other volunteers I had a great time and made some great friends. I would really recommend doing something like this, as It has really helped me as a person, learned so much and made great friends as well. I really enjoyed the city and will defintely come back one Day.
