ABOUT THE PROJECT

KYR PROJECT

KYR aims to train migrant workers to improve their knowledge on their rights in the workforce, both within specific countries and according to EU employment laws. KYR will develop approaches to reach out to migrant workers using online tools and peer mentoring, presenting information in 3-5 languages in each country in cooperation with trained peers. The project will provide skills on labor legislation to migrants and the overall objective is to create processes and good practices that can then be developed further to reach new migrants groups.

TARGET GROUP
The KYR project aims to improve public initiatives such as inspections in the workplace by promoting and raising awareness about national and European legislation and regulations on workers' rights. In addition, it seeks to train migrant workers in order to improve their knowledge about their labour rights.

RESULTS
Acquisition of new skills and competences in the field of labour laws and support mechanism for migrant workers as well as increasing their active involvement in an European-wide migrant support network. Raising awareness on migrant workers' situations and challenges; empowering the workers and creating a safe working environment.

DURATION
The project will last 24 months: from the 1st September 2019 to the 31st August 2021.
