Happened this summer:


The coffee bread at our picnic.

On June 11th we had a picnic, with an international theme, in Trekantsparken by Liljeholmen. We talked about work, tasted each other’s fika bread and played cube.

On the 22nd of June , we had a zoom meeting with Susanne Wettby from DHR Bidragsstiftelsen (the grant foundation), who told us about the conditions for applying for grants from them.

July 4th , we did some IT training at the office in Farsta for job seekers. For those of you who missed it, we want to say that there will be more chances!

How DRW’s focus group hatched the idea for RTA (this project)

The Disabled Refugees Welcome project ran between 2017 and 2020  highlighting the reception of migrants with disabilities in Sweden. In the project, the idea for this project was formed – by the participants themselves. Read the interview with our field worker Rahel Abebaw Atnafu.

Seek funds from DHR Bidragsstiftelsen (the grant foundation)

DHR Bidragsstiftelsen (the grant foundation) awards grants for things that can improve life and everyday life for people with reduced mobility. The idea is that more people will have a better and richer life. Unfortunately, the application period for this year expires right now, but it will open again in May next year.
