Thank you Chris! Your comments have been very valuables because they are aligned with the strategies includes in the project. We work with grassroots organizations to give them the tools, skills, and knowledge necessaries to create a safe space with the migrants. For us, it is crucial to create social capital in the host communities and provide the migrants with a clear pathway that they could follow to integrate themselves into their new home.
The program tested in Bogotá included 300 migrant families in a three-month process. They received support to overcome migratory pain and to integrate into the community. We taught the program to train social organizations, and with them, we held four workshops for women, twelve workshops for children, eight workshops for young people and an integration activity with the whole community. The pilot allowed us to test the facilitator training methodology, the frequency of community activities, and the receptivity of the beneficiaries. After this, the results were better than expected, and therefore we ask the experts what strategy we can include being able to form more organizations and thus increase the impact.
