Madrid, Spain Jumping Over the Language Barrier
For the past twenty years, the Senara Foundation has been helping people in vulnerable situations, especially in their search for employment. In January, the Fatima project was launched, financed by the European Union’s Asylum, Migration, and Integration Fund (AMIF). The initiative provides Spanish classes and the support of a mentoring network to women from various countries who come to Spain without knowing the language and with little help. The goal is that participants reach a high level in their knowledge of Spanish, certified after an intensive year of 10 hours of classes per week. In addition, each one has the personalized advice of a mentor who supports them in the process of adapting to their new environment.
