Fatima empowering migrant women across four countries

FATIMA

FATIMA is a collaborative project which supports the empowerment and social integration of migrant women across four countries.

Now in its second year, our EU partnership project, FATIMA,  is empowering migrant women, aged between 15 and 50, living in the UK, Poland, Slovenia, and Spain through a personalised and holistic approach.

The FATIMA project was co-designed with the purpose of supporting the economic, social cultural and political integration of 210 female Third-Country Nationals (non-European citizens), with a particular focus on local-language-learning. Each woman enrolled is receiving one-to-one support through language classes, mentoring, personalised development programmes, civic engagement and cultural activities, as well as volunteering and work experience. There have been numerous challenges to the programme’s implementation, but we are immensely proud of how our project partners have taken a flexible approach and succeeded in achieving all of our goals.  

  • Women directly impacted: 210
