Project Per.Se.O.: a course at the Innovation Gym with the Address Association

Last months of activity for Project Per.Se.O. – Courses, Services, Orientation for Social and Work Inclusion of International Protection Recipients (Fami Fund, 2014-2020) that will conclude at the end of the year. The Fondazione Mondo Digitale has collaborated with Roman Association Address, a project partner, to develop the course that involved 14 migrants (women and men with a living permit for political asylum or subsidiary protection, who have not been out of the reception circuit for more than 18 months).

The 25-hour digital literacy programme was held by Coach Lara Forgione, 3D model designer at the Innovation Gym in Rome.

Here is a short video with the experiences of two participants – Obay and Rita – both of Syrian origin, and Giuseppe Maccauro, President of Address.
