Protagonists' voices

The story of Omar

Omar is Guinean. When he got to Italy he was accommodated in a community for minors in the Syracuse province. He says he has been lucky twice: first because he has survived his trip; second because, thanks to his participation in the project “Along the way”, he has been able to develop the ability to carry out his life’s project. Omar is ambitious: he wants to attend the linguistic high school and work in tourism. He has recently started a hotel internship and has been promised he would be hired. Today Omar can see that his objective is closer at hand, he is satisfied and grateful to those people who have helped him find his way in Italy.

Along the way

Network experiments and interventions designed for the transition of unaccompanied foreign children and young adults to adulthood

A network of seventeen partners, active in Emilia Romagna, Lombardy, Sicily and Tuscany, supports young people in their path towards autonomy and helps them build the necessary competences and awareness for their delicate transition to adulthood.

Projects’ social impact

In 2016, Fondazione Cariplo, Compagnia di San Paolo, Fondazione CON IL SUD, Enel Cuore, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Torino, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Cuneo, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Padova e Rovigo and Fondazione Monte dei Paschi di Siena joined their efforts in the first edition of the National call for proposals “Reception and accompanying of foreign unaccompanied minors and young people who arrive in Italy alone".

 

The selected projects involve 75 institutions between associations of the third sector and Public Bodies and advocate actions in favour of minors autonomy in the transition to adulthood, as well as the strengthening and diffusion of foster care practices and the volunteer tutors system, and girls’ reception.
