Migrant Mentorship Model

Migrant Mentorship Model (MMM) presents a tailored approach to the teaching of basic skills of literacy, numeracy, ICT and social competences to migrants by addressing the issue from a migrant perspective. MMM is a 2-year project that brings together four partners from Slovenia (Andragoški zavod Maribor-Ljudska univerza and OZARA d.o.o.), Germany (INIBIA) and Italy (Eurocultura). The partners work in the fields of adult education, VET, occupational integration and social/cultural integration. All have experience with migrants and other disadvantaged groups. The partners work in localities where migrants are present and new approaches can benefit them and those working with them.

We are a European project in the ERAMSUS+ programme. This programme not only serves to develop specific themes in the partner schools, but also promotes a basic idea of the European Peace Project: to fight together for a new, peaceful world without racism and exclusion.
These evil spirits of racism and exclusion always come back when there is need and danger. This is the Corona virus at the moment.
That is why we use this project to support and strengthen each other emotionally, and maybe even to learn something from each other. Therefore today a story from Germany and a special feature from the German language.

The hamster. And: The "Hamsterkauf" (literal translation: Hamster purchase)!
The hamster is a burrower and belongs to the genus of the mice-like in the world of animals. In Europe lives the field hamster (Cricetus cricetus), which is unfortunately threatened with extinction. Children know the Syrian Golden Hamster as a pet, they love it. The hamster is known for collecting food in its cheek pockets and digging it in the ground at many hiding places as a reserve for times of need.
In the times of the Corona crisis there are a few people who get scared and panic and buy many products (e.g. noodles and toilet paper) in large quantities in case there is nothing left to buy. This is called "Hamsterkauf" in German.
1. We are sad that the name of this wonderful hamster is misused for antisocial behaviour and
2. we are happy that only a very few people do so.
Let us be social and support each other in respect and esteem!
Whoever has good ideas can write this to the Werkstatt-Berufskolleg Unna. Maybe we can make a difference.
If you have optimistic and lovely stories about Corona and your schools and organizations, don't hesitate to tell us these stories. With these stories from all over Europe we want to show that our schools and students are NOT selfish (buying hamsters!), but social, optimistic, European!

In Germany, the multiplier event of iNIBIA EEIG took place at the vocational school, which has incorporated the results of the MMM project into its didactic plans and is now training the third generation of migrant mentors. Baris Gündüz and Dieter Schulze presented the results of the MMM-project.

The Werkstatt-Berufskolleg Unna had organised a European presentation day on 31 September 2019, at which three European projects - related in content - were presented to the public.

This overarching context made it possible to interest not only the 26 teachers and experts and 11 employers but also 163 students in the results. In addition, 36 migrants were present who benefited from the work of the migrant mentors and one expert from the partners of the European projects of the Werkstatt-Berufskolleg.

We are both happy and sad!

The MMM project is coming to an end. On 11.09.2019 the first multiplier event took place in Maribor in Slovenia.

Irena Urankar, Tatjana Njiwar and Dieter Schulze as well as one of the Migrant Mentors, Habte Tareke told about "their" project, which was also very successful from the point of view of the internal evaluation.

The developed curriculum is now being implemented in a school in Germany in its third year. The idea has been incorporated into subsequent projects in the form of variations.

Many guests – employers, educators, guests from 5 countries – were present and listened to the lectures of the project partners and especially of a migrant mentor,Habte Tareke .

The Slovenian daily newspaper Maribor reported about this conference.
