JRS – Isusovačka služba za izbjeglice


Centre for the Integration of Refugees „SOL“.

JRS Croatia launches their crowdfunding campaign “Jučer stranci, danas susjedi” translated as “Yesterday strangers, today neighbours” to support its recently opened Centre for the Integration of Refugees – SOL.

SOL promotes intercultural understanding and mutual learning by bringing refugees and Croatian citizens together. By organizing intercultural encounters through formal and informal gatherings, JRS has witnessed that bonds of trust and friendship are kindled between refugees and locals who previously did not know each other. In addition to fostering these encounters, SOL offers practical trainings and workshops to strengthen people’s skills and prepare them to overcome challenges that come with integrating in new cultural and linguistic communities, job markets and schools.
