Identify and apply good practices

Cáritas Coimbra invited Francisca Gorjão Henriques, one of the founders of the Associação Pão a Pão, to talk about this NGO, from Portugal, that has been developing several innovative projects, in a perfect union between social inclusion, gastronomy and culture.

Associação Pão a Pão promotes the integration of refugees and immigrants through training and employability. In Mezze, an Arabic food restaurant, Middle Eastern refugees are given training and jobs. They use the skills that many women and young adults bring from their home countries and give them the tools so that their work – and their identity – are valued and shared with their new community.
