TRAINERS FOR THE FUTURE
Netwerkpro and FMDO, a Belgium organisation have been working together on the strengthening of women with a migration background. The project Trainers for the Future is part of a European project from Erasmus+, which makes the exchange between both organizations possible. FMDO and Netwerkpro individually have access to a great deal of specific expertise, but just imagine what will happen if we join forces?
In 2022 FMDO and Netwerkpro developed a training offer of 8 workshops and 3 e-learning sessions. In that programme, we train a group of trainers, who in turn will train many other women. The women’s talents are always at the heart of this endeavour.
Focus on the ability to cope
In the empowerment programme, the organisations focus on vulnerable women with a migration background. Attention is paid to mental and physical health, self-confidence and getting to know their own goals and qualities. In this way, we offer them the tools to take the next step towards participation, education, or work. Since they are being trained by their peers, they strengthen their networks and learn from role models.
Trainer Armine: “I think it is important to give women that extra nudge so that they believe in themselves. In my opinion, deploying talent and passion is essential. Because when you do something that you are good at, then you also really enjoy doing it. Believe in yourself and get out of your comfort zone! You will definitely get results!”
