The programme supports vocational training in Germany and advisory services for returnees, making it easier for them to make a fresh start in their countries of origin.
Support in Germany
The focus is on advising individuals on social and employment prospects – from preparation in Germany to a fresh start in the country of origin. In Germany, the programme works with selected executing organisations to offer returnees vocational training measures. In addition to the services provided by the advisory centres, there are also ‘reintegration scouts’ who provide information about opportunities in the countries of origin.
Support in the country of origin
Together with national partner institutions, the programme runs advisory centres for jobs, migration and reintegration in 12 countries of origin. The centres are designed to cater not only to returnees from Germany and third countries, but also to internally displaced people and the local population. They provide advice on social and employment prospects in the country in question and offer training courses, vocational skills development and psychosocial support services, so that people can improve their prospects on the job market.
The advisory centres work closely with other projects German development cooperation projects and with civil society, the private sector, international organisations and local institutions.
