Let’s break their isolation, let’s be their bridge to society.
They have left everything – their countries, parents, loved ones – in order to live, or rather… to survive. Without any points of reference, without support and without help, they find themselves like orphans in Paris, with only the clothes on their backs. The streets, hunger and cold are part of their everyday lives. They are refugees, but above all they are men, women and children.
These past two years, we have been going out to visit the refugees, getting to know them and listening to their stories. Their needs are huge as they often arrive with nothing, at times not even a coat or shoes to help them fight off the cold of Paris. Among them are some who have been injured during their long journey, others who are sick or simply in need of food.
Our vision is to accompany them and to integrate them within our different communities, through language courses, dance classes, sports, etc. all the while trying to direct them in their administrative or medical processes.
Depending on their different levels, we suggest workshops to them where they can learn the language in ways that are adapted to them.
The Dance group
Integrating them into a french group of dancers in order to enable them to express their feelings as well as make friends.
Enabling them to let off steam through sports whilst being integrated into teams and organised into clubs.
Collecting and distributing
For those on the streets who are in need, we collect and distribute according to their needs. This mostly entails clothes, tents, hygiene products…
We go out to meet them and to invite them to our events so that they can enjoy a moment of dance, theatre, musicals, games or sharing …
We are aware of the needs that different organisations, providing lodgement for the refugees in centres, have. In response, we are partnering with them to offer our services in accordance with their needs: workshops, outings, events, etc.
