As an example of our activities:
BIIA – unemployed persons, a political decision (and assumption that unemployed persons not are skilled enough to get a job if they have been out of labor market for a time), a social enterprise working with the aims to increase the individuals conditions to be self-supporting = the mix between nonprofit, public and private/social interests create and enable paid jobs, through financial governmental support employment and offering services and a training restaurant to the market. After 5 years experiences , we have seen that persons grow when they get new conditions, training possibilities and an increasing network useful for learning and job contacts, meeting between different cultures and practical, concrete tools to use, in this case a real restaurant in a multicultural suburb and the employer’s liability – 11 persons from long-term unemployment to full-time job during the period.
