We believe in the importance of cultural mediation, as an attitude of openness to cultural diversity, a methodological tool and a professional contribution to communication between migrants and services.
Initiatives of cultural mediation are here presented according to different target groups.
Since August 2008 our organization provides cultural mediation service to the Gruppo Abele’s mobile unit for commercial sex workers.
Our cultural mediators from Albania, Nigeria and Romania work alongside with the Gruppo Abele’s outreach workers, to help sex workers avoid contracting diseases and sexually transmitted infections such as HIV and syphilis.
ASYLUM SEEKERS AND REFUGEES
In 2013, IDEADONNA was partner of a project by Me.Dia.Re Association, aimed at offering psycological counseling and support to asylum seekers and people under humanitarian protection. We provided cultural mediation services in these languages: arabic, dari and pashto, somali.
