Acting Collectively for Girls' Integration

The young people of the Mistral Lys Rouge Camine (a priority district of the city's policy in the Grenoble metropolitan area), and especially girls, face great difficulties in their socio-economic integration. With an activity rate of 27.7% compared to 44.3% for boys, girls are more excluded from the labour market, but also from the public sphere. This is due in particular to the weight of gender stereotypes that confine young girls to traditional reproductive roles (domestic and family care).

To promote the professional integration of these young girls, we work with local partners (Centre socio-sportif Le Plateau, Mission Locale, CODASE) to develop their power to act, so that they become actors in their lives and able to change their situation. It is notably through the practice of sport that they will (re)appropriate mixed public spaces and that they will be able to benefit from social support adapted to their needs.

Besides, professionals of integration and youth will be made aware and trained to take into account the specific obstacles linked to the integration of girls and to guide them in a gender-neutral way (training, occupation, leisure, etc.). Finally, spaces for dialogue will allow the families of these girls and, more broadly, the inhabitants of the district to discuss gender inequalities.

Improving the access to rights for migrants workers in Vietnam

For 20 years, Vietnam has experienced a significant economic growth, especially in industrial zones, at the expense of agricultural development. A lot of people living in the countryside, mostly women, don’t have any other choice than going to big cities in order to find a job and provide for their families’ needs. Working in big factories most of the time, those women became migrants in their own country because they are not registered with local authorities of the province they work in.

With our local partners, we decided to support migrant women workers in the industrial zones of Vinh Phuc and Hai Duong (around Hanoi). They are a very vulnerable group, and they either lack access to, or know about, their own rights.

From these observations, the Phu Nu project initiates a dialogue between different stakeholders (migrant women workers, unions, landlords, companies, local authorities…), so the migrants can improve their working and living conditions. Women’s clubs were created so that women could inform each other about their social and economic rights. Furthermore, local authorities and companies participate in awareness-raising meetings in order to ensure those changes will last.

Supporting differently vulnerable immigrants

Many Parisian organizations, in charge of supporting immigrants in vulnerable situations, agree on the same observations. Indeed, the majority of these people haven't resort to their rights, have difficulties in accessing health care and are absent from social and civic participation bodies.

In order to identify the levers for improving the social and civic integration of these people, we are working on the co-construction of a local dynamic between organizations. The objective of this group of actors is therefore to learn from the practices of one another, in order to strengthen their efforts to support vulnerable migrant populations.

To this end, we ensure the animation and structuring of the group through workshops for the exchange of practices, training, design of information/awareness tools on the intercultural approach... We also offer these different actors support in the experimentation of new accompaniement and/or partnership modalities. The purpose of these experiments is to be able to draw lessons from them and to formalize them so that they can be shared with other organizations.
