Parents and Family Education

An important area of our association’s work is parent and family education. Our goal is to accompany and support individual family members and families as a whole in coping with life and to stimulate processes of reflection and change. With our activities we create a space especially for families with migration and refugee experience – for their personal needs, wishes and expectations, their rights, for their social identity, their social contacts and their physical and psychological regeneration.

In addition, we share our knowledge and experience in workshops and seminars with other organizations, initiatives and multipliers.
