Once refugees are granted official recognition, they are often thrust out on their own, and they must quickly settle in and begin their new lives in Belgium. The transition can be a hard one. Shean aims to facilitate the integration of these legal refugees by offering them short-term housing. They provide them a place where they can gather their strength and courage and prepare to continue on with their lives. Shean also offers a support group and coordinates different networks and resources available to the refugee, such as social assistance, various training courses, help with job-hunting, and help with how and where to find other helpful information. Their objective in all this is to offer a jumping-off point, orienting the refugee and giving hope of a better future.

Project Plan

Before Shean can start accepting refugees the electrical and the plumbing in the house needs to be completely redone. The board has been working hard at raising funds to cover the cost of materials and local builders who will work together with the teams that are needed. Much work has already been done, and they would like to keep the momentum moving forward while there is such a great need in Brussels.

Workers Needed

  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Light Construction
  • Service
  • Cooking

 

*Final cost is dependent on number of team members, specific project scope, and project duration.
