THE KEY PROBLEM: REFUGEES IN MEXICO NEED AN INCOME AND ACCESS TO HEALTH SERVICES
Refugees come to Mexico with their families to build new lives free of violence, persecution and crisis. Fleeing Central America, Venezuela and other regions, most arrive without support networks and resources. That is why they are amongst the most affected by the COVID-19 contingency. They have no income allowing them to cover basic needs and lack access to health services.
HOW OUR PROGRAM MAKES JOB INTEGRATION POSSIBLE
INTRARE’s program is designed with refugees’ input and is based on their needs to make real change happen. We continuously adjust to shifts in the labor market caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Training on soft skills key for accessing good positions.
- A basic needs stipend that makes it possible for them to invest time in the training.
- A personal mentor for each participant, who supports each step of the integration.
- A peer-to-peer support community.
- Partner companies who offer formal jobs with health insurance. Most of our partners froze hiring processes in mid-March. We have started working with companies that continue hiring during the contingency.
This is how our program works step by step:
*All recognized refugees and many asylum seekers receive a work permit in Mexico.
In our pilot project we worked with 25 refugees, trained and matched them with employers. Now, it is time for us to grow. By the end of 2020, we aim to place 100 refugees in decent jobs in Mexico.
WHAT WE CAN ACHIEVE WITH YOUR SUPPORT
For the refugees, accessing a job means much more than a safe income. It means to get to know their host society through their mentors and coworkers, and start making Mexico their home.
With 300 USD, we can sponsor one refugee to participate in our program. Let’s have a look at that:
Together, we can make a change in the lives of those affected by the COVID-19 contingency. In 2020, we can enable futures for 100 refugees in 2020. Join our campaign and share it today!
