Raising Together


Integrated entrepreneurship with immigrants and vulnerable locals. This programme brings together immigrants and refugees in Slovenia with vulnerable local residents like unemployed, families on a low income, single parent families and retired people. These social groups have limited resources, little information and possibilities to improve their quality of life or income but they have their own houses, apartments, kitchens, tools and skills. Raising together connects local vulnerable people with immigrants in their own homes to create products in gastronomy, fashion, handicraft and art supported by experts from various fields. Doing things together like making food, growing plants, doing art, sharing stories, celebrating together, planning a business and supporting each other have a very positive personal impact on all involved in these micro societies.
