Social ENTerpreneurship for Immigrants


Entrepreneurship and social economy are two economy aspects of increasing importance and on which governments and authorities place great emphasis as they may constitute a way out of the economic crisis. After trained in their field, individuals are prepared to enter a more productive and competitive market, which ultimately has a positive effect on society and the economy.

Taking the above into account as well as the huge potential of social economy and its contributions to the local development, one of the objectives of the SENTIM project is to explore and utilize the potential of social economy considering the needs of the immigrants and by extension the needs of anyone who faces discrimination in the labor market and social exclusion.

Our target groups are mainly immigrants at risk of social exclusion but our activity plans will also address to other groups; professionals and volunteers working with immigrants and other people at risk of social exclusion; professionals in the field of training, vocational training; entrepreneurship center professionals; local and regional policy makers in education, training and entrepreneurship; people in charge in social, employment and training areas.
