Social & Working inclusion

Soleterre ONLUS is actively committed to socio-professional inclusion, creating opportunities and support for individuals facing occupational challenges. Through a multidisciplinary approach, our organization promotes vocational guidance, training, counselling and employment integration, with a particular focus on vulnerable groups such as migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, minors, oncology patients, individuals with severe traumas, and those facing economic difficulties. We work to ensure that everyone has access to meaningful employment opportunities, thereby contributing to building a more inclusive and supportive society.

WORK IS PROGRESS

Work Is Progress is the Soleterre Foundation program dedicated to viable employment opportunities for the most vulnerable, and is active in Italy, French-speaking Africa and Central America.
Our aim is to enable everyone to find work and keep it over time.
For more than 10 years we have been taking care of the needs of the individual and his or her family to improve the living conditions of those who turn to us.

In 2022, the “Work is Progress” program experienced a significant expansion of activities to support individuals facing employment challenges. Leveraging 6 operational centers, a dedicated team of 28 professionals, and an advisory board consisting of 5 pro bono managers from major corporations, the program implemented targeted actions to promote employment in four countries: Italy, Morocco, El Salvador, and Ivory Coast.

Across these locations, the program provided comprehensive services, including initial information, professional guidance, job search assistance, skill development training, and technical-organizational consultations for those interested in developing independent micro-business activities, both individually and collectively.

In an effort to bridge the gap between job demand and supply, on-site services were complemented by online services. This approach ensured continuity in individual job search journeys and facilitated participation for users residing in areas physically distant from the program’s territorial offices.

Embracing a multidisciplinary approach and addressing the diverse needs of individuals, the program, with its team of professionals from various fields, not only guided users through job insertion or reintegration but also initiated a variety of initiatives aimed at enhancing overall well-being and inner security.

These initiatives encompassed psychological support, legal assistance actions, personalized coaching, life skills reinforcement, support in migration journeys, and, in communities experiencing violent conflicts, educational interventions for the prevention of violence and school dropout. The program’s holistic efforts are dedicated to improving the integral well-being and security of the individuals it serves.
