Working visit with Barka Foundation, aimed at meeting Bulgarian citizens who came to the Netherlands as migrant workers, but became homeless.

Reflection on theme of the day with an audience of up to 40 people: Bulgarians and other so-called "labor migrants" in the Netherlands plus professionals from the field of labor migration.
Barka Netherlands was founded in 1994 in response to the increasing number of Central and Eastern European migrants on the streets of the Netherlands who were experiencing homelessness and substance abuse.
This organization supports migrants from Central and Eastern Europe. In their migrant support projects, they work in teams of two people: a leader and a social assistant. The leader is a person with a personal experience of homelessness and addiction, which he has fought and rehabilitated within the Barka Network educational and social programs. The social worker is a person who holds a degree. The social assistant is a person who is familiar with the language and regulations in the Netherlands and has formal training (e.g., a degree in social work, psychology, etc.) Together they work in a team to help individuals on the street.
