The pilot training was conducted at Solidarity in Action (Messina, Italy) on Wednesday 7th of September 2022 from 09:00 to 16:30. In total, 24 adult migrants/refugees trainers participated. All of them come from “Solidarity in Action”, a non-profit association based in Messina, founded by a group of Italian enthusiasts in November 2018. Their aim is to promote the active participation of immigrants in social, economic, and cultural life.
Education In Progress has chosen to collaborate with Solidarity in Action for the development of piloting as its contact person, Antonino Bevilacqua, directly manages migrants of the association, the final target group of the project. Involving migrants’ teachers as participants in piloting allowed us to collect much more relevant data on lessons. As for the training in Greece, the training in Italy was organized and conducted face-to-face.
