On June 13th, the SVMI Multiplier event ‘Welcome to Lithuania’ took place in the Tolerance Center of the Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum in Vilnius (LT). The event was organised by SIH in cooperation with MCTAU.
The event brought together participants from both Lithuanian and migrant communities, as well as senior volunteers and representatives of different organisations working in the field of migrant integration.
During the event which took the format of a practical workshop, the participants were briefed with the project, its progress and results, including the practical demonstration of the newly developed mobile App – an orientation and language guide for foreigners in Lithuania. The participants were invited to test this App in practice by participating in the role-playing game. They also were engaged in the contact fair where representatives of organizations working in the field of migrant integration presented their services for migrants and volunteering opportunities for SVMI senior volunteers ready to provide their assistance in the integration process.
The event attracted great interest from the participants, who felt better equiped to work on migrant integration issues.
