Barka Employment Initiative

Our employment initiative focuses on work with homeless and vulnerable migrants towards finding a sustainable employment. Since May 2012, nearly 30 persons started employment that enabled them to move out of dependency on homeless services.

Some of the homeless persons found work with warehouses, factories, cleaning and waste recycling companies, as well as restaurants.

We work with each person individually, identifying prospective employment opportunities and creating personalized CVs, as well as registering with relevant recruitment agencies. We also provide assistance with improving each person’s job seeking skills such as computer literacy skills for online job seeking, writing cover notes, and job interview preparation.

We provide information and encourage individuals to use other services that may help them to improve their life and professional skills, obtain sustainable employment and enhance their chances for integration with wider society. These include participating in English literacy classes, taking up training and volunteering. All our services are confidential and free of charge.
