The fourth meeting of our Strategic Partnership, funded by Erasmus + through Leargas, took place in the Feyenoord FC stadium in Rotterdam this week. The meeting involved an exchange of practice and discussions about our project which has seen hundreds of education professionals participate in anti-racism training. The project has also developed some new initiatives to help in our platform of anti-racism education.
The Solidarity dinners have proved a great success so far in bringing people together. It is an opportunity to have some tasty food from diverse cultures but also to get to know people from different backgrounds. The dinners are open to all including children, if accompanied.
Through activities and events people can show their support for refugees and asylum seekers. RAMSI organise dinners (that bring people together over tasty food), fundraise to help at home and abroad, teach English to new arrivals and Arabic to those heading over to camps in Europe or meeting those who have just arrived. RAMSI works to lobby, educate and inform.
