FITT launched a project aiming to create friendly contexts and spaces for young people who have taken refuge from the armed conflict in Ukraine in Timiș County.

We want the project to contribute to building the trust of young Ukrainians in the local community in our county and vice versa, while stimulating the participation of young people in the life of the local community, creating alternatives and opportunities for development and leisure.

The proposed objectives are:

  • Creating youth-friendly spaces and contexts (youth centers, including a mobile unity);
  • Supporting and facilitating access to education and building a context based on community participation;
  • Stimulating and developing intercultural dialogue between young refugees and young people in the host community;
  • Stimulating and building the trust of young Ukrainians in the local community and vice versa;
  • Educating young people at risk about the risks and consequences of engaging in acts of violence and crime;
  • Creating alternatives and leisure time opportunities for young people.

The beneficiaries of this project are young people aged between 14 and 35, bringing together both young people who took refuge in Timiș County following the armed conflict in Ukraine, and also young people from the local community, from Timișoara.
