CODECA and the Municipality of Engomi, have undertaken the implementation of the EU project “EMBRACIN”. The project is co funded by the Migration and Security Fund - Directorate General for Migration and Home Affairs and by national resources.


The Embracin project was born from a small and significant experience of Professor Calò in Italy, who, from the personal experience as a host of 6 migrants, developed a scheme called "6+6x6" that in 2018 allowed him to win the European citizen award. The professor's idea is that 6 migrants/Beneficiaries of International Protection per 5,000 inhabitants can be welcomed with a personalized approach and individualized support, to facilitate a complete process towards social and economic integration within 24 months.

 Aims of the project:

  • build a sense of family connection bonds between the participants

  • create a support team of professionals for the emancipation path of the participating migrants that considers all actors engaged in this initiative (mentor family members, migrants’ local stakeholders etc.)

  • evaluation of its economic, social and cultural impact.

Target group:

  • Newcomer applicants of International protection
