Addressing Global Challenges with Local Solutions
CAMRAS project stands at the forefront of addressing one of the most pressing global issues of our time: forced migration. the syrian war, starting in 2011, marked a notable increase in the displacement of millions, leading to a significant influx of migrants and refugees into turkey and europe. many of these individuals, in their quest for safety and stability, find themselves in the agricultural sector of their host countries. however, the lack of essential skills and knowledge in agriculture often leads to inefficiencies and potential environmental issues.
CAMRAS is dedicated to transforming these challenges into opportunities for growth and sustainability through Agricultural Skills Training for Migrants and Refugees. Our objectives are:
Research, Education, and Integration
The CAMRAS project is action-oriented, focusing on:
Conducting primary research to understand the specific needs of migrants and refugees for skill development and community integration.
Engaging with farmers and potential employers to ascertain workforce needs and prerequisites.
Developing an online environment for training, thereby accelerating workforce qualification and integration.
Creating the 'Effective Farming Guidebook' to enhance skills in sustainable agriculture, a key resource in agricultural skills training for migrants and refugees.
Enhancing the capabilities of trainers to improve educational and training offerings.
CAMRAS project not only equips migrants and refugees with the skills necessary for efficient agricultural production but also prepares them for potential reverse migration. by empowering them through agricultural skills training for migrants and refugees, we contribute to the food security and economic stability of both their host and home countries.
