Akidwa, network of migrant women living in Ireland, is introducing a new work experience programme for migrant women in greater Dublin area.We would like to ask you to forward the information below on our programme Door to Work to your friends, clients, contacts and organizations this might be of interest to. Please note there are two information meetings about this programme. The nearest meeting takes place tomorrow and the following meeting is on next Wednesday in Teachers Club in Parnell Square West.

Door to Work is targeted at migrant women experiencing difficulties in accessing the labour market. The programme is designed for skilled migrant women who are unable to secure work in the area of their qualification. Door to Work enables migrant women to ‘get a foot in the door’; it offers them an opportunity to gain invaluable experience, develop proffessional skills, establish new contacts and get a reference.

AkiDwA also calls upon the migrant organizations, networks, centres and groups in greater Dublin area to lead by example and show support to this initiative by offerring work experience placements within your organizations. The placements will be of six months weeks to three months in duration; they will be unpaid. For further information please see the attachment or visit our website: www.akidwa.ie/Employment.php
