Through a cross-country network of projects and organisations, we aim to address the prevailing disadvantages of women and girls in Europe, specifically those who are refugees and migrants. Labour exploitation and isolation due to lack of language skills and missing out on formal education caused by the dangerous situation in their home country or constant moving, often leaves refugee and migrant women and girls in a vulnerable position.
Additionally, a rising level of youth unemployment in Europe is creating obstacles for young Europeans to find meaningful employment and gain financial independence. Reflecting this is the high level of unemployment in the member states of this cross-cultural project ranging from 10 per cent at its lowest in the UK to its highest at 30 per cent in Spain and Italy. The six countries taking part in our networks are the United Kingdom, Spain, Latvia, Italy, Poland and Slovenia.
