The Abrazando Ilusiones Foundation has developed this project (partially subsidized by the Community of Madrid) to train immigrants and vulnerable groups who are looking for employment or who lack the necessary resources to enjoy good employability. Therefore, with INACICAM we are committed to accompanying, advising, and guiding the beneficiaries, covering their basic needs, training them in social skills through individualized training itineraries, and in the usage of ITC to improve their employability and reduce the current digital and technological gap. This training will be accompanied by education for employment with workshops on active job search and job placement, career guidance services, working from home techniques, and guidance for self-employment.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented social and health crisis worldwide with serious socioeconomic consequences for everyone and especially for the most vulnerable people or those at risk of social exclusion. In the Community of Madrid, the situation is similar to that of other communities: many people have lost their purchasing power, others wait long lines to receive food and find it more difficult every day to find a job.
The pandemic has alienated vulnerable groups from job opportunities due to the lack of financial resources to acquire electronic devices, computers, cell phones, install internet or search for online support networks. This digital divide has also intensified with the changing needs of the market: remote work or working from home.
With the INACICAM project, we are serving 30 people directly and individually for 12 months. We help immigrants at risk of social exclusion, for physical, cultural, or social reasons. We promote education for employment and the integration of immigrants and we offer health and social care to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people, especially sick people without resources. To carry out this inclusion we have the following objectives:
The development of this project is possible thanks to the work of professionals with acquired experience in the field of socio-occupational inclusion, social workers and trainers for employment, teachers, volunteers, and other professionals from different fields.
