Project “Report card in pocket” for refugee minors

The project “Pagella in tasca – Channels of study for refugee minors” promoted by UNHCR and INTERSOS, in collaboration with the Farnesina and the Ministry of the Interior and co-financed by the Italian Episcopal Conference and Migrantes Foundation, has started. The first 5 young refugees, Sudanese from Darfur, arrived in Italy today, October 15.

The initiative creates a complementary channel of migration for 35 unaccompanied minors between the ages of 16 and 17 years old, who fled the violence in Darfur and took refuge first in Libya and then in Niger, thus developing the offer of innovative legal paths towards Europe (as hoped for in the new European Pact on Migration and Asylum). The reception path is ensured through family fostering and inclusion in a study path by the Network of Provincial Centers for Adult Education (CPIA) of the Piedmont Region.

“Pagella in Tasca” starts in this way a new model of reception of refugees and vulnerable migrants, addressing in a legal and safe way to particularly fragile beneficiaries such as unaccompanied minors and realizing also an original scheme of “community sponsorship” on the territory.
