Unaccompanied migrant children are vulnerable for two reasons: because they are children and because they are asylum seekers. The PROMISE project helps them to become aware of their rights and access the public services provided by law.
Goal and objectives
The PROMISE project aims to enhance the access for migrant minors and young people to their fundamental rights and to public services. We will achieve this through advocacy services, free legal assistance, information, training and increasing the capacity of vulnerable groups to be involved in decision making and consultative process. Also, we seek to support collaboration between institutions and between the institutions and the foreigners to ensure that the best interest of the child is respected and to improve the policies, legislation, practices, and attitudes.
What will we do?
advocacy activities, free legal assistance, training ;
involve young migrants in the decision making, consultative process and visibility activities.
