With the influx of refugees that Europe has faced since the spring of 2015, many children and teenagers are emigrating alone, without their family. They are left to fend for themselves in a foreign country. It is necessary to assign tutors to them, in order to provide permanent support and facilitate their integration in their country of asylum. The aim of SKF's project is to implement this in the town of Moers, in West Germany.
SKF's project consists in recruiting volunteer tutors through information meetings and ads published in local newspapers. 20 tutors will be trained by specialized educators and by an expert in asylum law, to provide assistance for isolated child refugees. Once their training is complete and the tutors are recognized as the refugees' legal representatives, SKF provides constant support for the tutors for the duration of their mission.
The Air Liquide Foundation is supporting SKF by financing the acquisition of furniture for the classrooms as well as covering the cost of training the tutors.
