Social mission

Migrants, such as refugees, expats, foreign participants and guest workers, face many difficulties when they arrive in a new country. Not being able to rely on a support network or simply not understanding the local language and culture creates misunderstandings and communication difficulties between migrants and locals. Due to these phenomenons xenophobia, prejudices and racism arise which creates hostile atmospheres in the societies. SPEAK helps solving all these issues. Also, it strengthens solidarity networks in communities, particularly between migrants and locals, by promoting relationships between people of different backgrounds, thus tackling a contentious issue that has a lot of negative externalities. SPEAK also promotes the full participation of all individuals in society, making for stronger communities.
