Humanitarian organization Ruke nade (Hands of Hope) has a mandate to help the asylum seekers integrate as soon as possible into the Croatian society. Everyday through the work in our activities and programs our volunteers help better the state and accelerate the process of integration of the asylum seekers to Croatian society.
There are currently two developed and active programs our Organization is carrying out that are directed to the process of integration.
Integration program consists of many activities that are happening every day in the asylum center but also outside of the center. Each activity lasts for 6 months, and is being carried out 2 times per week in different locations in and out of the center. After 6 months there is a detailed analysis of what was learned and it is decided whether the asylum seekers are able to continue the process of integration in another program.
It is our wish to help the asylum seekers to primarily learn about Croatian culture and society, to learn the language, and to work on the computer.
Croatian language course – beginner level
Croatian language course – advanced level
German language course – beginner level
Working on the computer – beginner level
Learning about Croatian society, history, and culture
Independency and employment program
The program is divided to:
The support for the asylum seekers in finding accommodation
Through this program we help the asylum seekers become independent, and continue with a normal life in our society. We do that by offering support in the process of finding a place to live, as well as offering different educational programs designed to help the asylum seekers find employment and become fully independent.
In this program we offer different educational courses and workshops with professionals with a teaching background. The purpose of these activities is to help the asylum seekers conquer their past fears, find what motivates them, and realize what it is that they would love to do in the future.
Volunteering of the asylum seekers in the charity activities
Besides the help in finding a place to live, and the educational activities, asylum seekers can also directly join in helping the local community, volunteering in social programs that the Organization is implementing in the Republic of Croatia.
Humanitarian organization Ruke nade has a social program directed towards the most vulnerable people in our society. The asylum seekers can, if they so wish, join any of the humanitarian activities in Croatia, and help the Organization’s volunteers in packing and distributing humanitarian aid.
