The Daily Integration Center INTERgreat is providing direct and systematic assistance and inclusion in society true providing legal support, language learning and education, employment assistance, housing, mental health and psychosocial support, workshops, health emergency response, as well as social, cultural and sport inclusion.
With education and organization workshops we want to raise inclusion in society for people on the move and asylum seekers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Through our programs we prepare their economic independence by developing their skills with the goal of long term integration and possibilities in the job market, etc.
There are many activities for connecting people in the daily integration center, our favorite activity is to cook together traditional food from all around the world. In Bosnia you can’t easily find restaurants or hotels where you can taste food from different parts of the world. We are making a unique traditional food workshop where people in our community can learn and participate to cook different meals
During the summer period, we will carry out a program of summer activities at INTERgreat Center, in collaboration with our partner Collective Aid. This program will include English and Bosnian language classes, Football matches and cooking together evenings.
The activities are open for people on the move and asylum seekers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The aim is to combine the learning of knowledge with the development of practical skills, as well as moments of recreation.
We play in a relaxed atmosphere, you can meet people from all over the world and thus support the project "world travelers football team" The idea is to give a chance to get out of the harsh everyday life, meet new people and create interaction with the local community through playing and training.
Every Saturday, training and friendly matches are held alternately in which persons of migration origin, volunteers and friends from local and international organizations attend. After the field, we hang out in our day center and exchange experiences about food and culture and build friendships.
Volunteering can be a very enriching and fulfilling activity in which you can show solidarity and make an essential personal contribution. Simultaneously, you receive incomparable experiences and gain new knowledge and skills in various fields.
However, it is also important to bring some specific skills, motivation, and enough time to use those abilities in a helpful and supportive manner.
Working with asylum seekers and refugees is something very special and can be very meaningful. Further, it requires an intercultural and empathetic approach and confronts one with own privileges and with difficult human circumstances.
We are especially happy about requests for a longer period, because it always takes some time until you have really settled.
