Collegio del Mondo Unito scholarship
The Never Alone founders have offered a biennial grant at the Collegio del Mondo Unito dell’Adriatico (Duino-Aurisina – TS) covering the total costs for a young migrant’s education and living expenses.
The Collegio offers an educational programme for the last two years of the secondary school, at the end of which the student can get the International Baccalaureate (IB). This is a diploma accepted by the most important Universities all over the world, equivalent to the secondary school ones, according to the Law no. 738 of 30th October 1986. In the Collegio, all the subjects are taught in English and all the teachers have passed an international selection.
In 2017, a young migrant arrived in Italy by sea and alone from Egypt was awarded a scholarship, besides he was also selected for a scholarship in the United States.
In 2019 an unaccompanied child from Sierra Leone has been selected.
The “Rigenerazioni” project’s goal is the “Mentor”. The Mentor is a person, or a family, who carries forward, on a voluntary basis, those actions that the “guardian” has already started related to the social inclusion of those unaccompanied migrant children and young adults (aged between 18-21) who are living alone in Italy.
“Rigenerazioni” represents the Italian side of the project approved by the European Commission in July 2018 within the framework of the Call for Proposals AMIF-2017-AG-INTE (FAMI) – INTEGRATION OF THIRD -COUNTRY NATIONALS, with Defence for Children as leading partner.
The project provides for similar actions in Greece with ARSIS and Spain with Associació Punt de Referència.
