Our Projects

We develop projects and co-design with refugees, other foreigners and Lithuanians activities in the fields of advocacy, integration and education, which address needs and challenges of refugees and benefit society.

Talent Together
(February 2023- April 2024)

Funded by the Programme of The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Refugee-led Innovation Fund, this project was initiated to empower refugees through entrepreneurship and digital skills development. 

Divided into two phases, Talent Together focused on outreach and research in its initial phase, followed by the design and activation of entrepreneurship programs. Through personalized services and dedicated spaces, refugees were provided with the necessary tools and networks to nurture their business ideas and skills. Additionally, the project aimed to change societal perceptions of refugees by highlighting their potential as entrepreneurs and contributors to the community.

Capacity Building and Partnerships between Baltic and Nordic Countries 
(June 2023- April 2024)

This initiative aimed to enhance the organizational capacity of refugee-led organizations in Lithuania and Latvia through strategic partnerships and knowledge exchange with Nordic counterparts.

By learning from established partners, the project aimed to improve program management, integration strategies, and overall organizational effectiveness. Special attention was given to the inclusion of Ukrainian refugees, with a focus on capacity-building activities and onsite visits in Finland and Sweden. The project was implemented thanks to the funding by Nordic Council of Ministers’ Grant Programme for Nordic-Baltic Non-Governmental Organizations’.

Addressing Ukraine Situation Response in Lithuania by Building Entrepreneurial Competencies and Digital Skills for Refugees
(October 2023-October 2025)

Funded by the U.S Embassy in Vilnius, this project targeted the sustainable integration of Ukrainian refugees into Lithuanian society by equipping them with entrepreneurial competencies, cybersecurity and digital skills. Through workshops, language courses, and networking events, refugees were provided with the necessary tools to establish businesses or become self-employed. With a significant focus on Ukrainian participants, the project aimed to enhance their digital knowledge, cybersecurity awareness, and entrepreneurship skills, eventually facilitating their long-term integration into the socio-economic fabric of Lithuania.

Continuing the dialogue with refugee communities in Lithuania
(June 2023- December 2023)

Funded through support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the project’s main goal was to establish a self-sustainable refugee representation platform in Lithuania, fostering dialogue among refugees from diverse communities.

By organizing a series of meetings, refugees collaborated on solutions for socio economic inclusion, expanded their networks, and shared experiences in an all inclusive and supporting environment.

The project facilitated direct participation in decision-making processes, promoted effective integration, and empowered refugees to contribute to their own well-being.

Refugee Dialogue Project
(July 2022 - December 2022)

Funded by the UNHCR, this project connected refugees from different communities: Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Belarus and Turkey. It made people realise that they are not alone and hopefully, brought the sense of belonging to the community of people from different backgrounds but with the same destiny, sharing similar difficulties.



Capacity Building Project (September 2022 - December 2022)

This project was funded by the UNHCR.
