Individual sponsorship by a RANA volunteer to accompany a refugee
The « Buddy » project is the central pillar of RANA. It is a sponsorship system that operates on the basis of the individual accompanying a refugee by a RANA volunteer. Refugees are thus accompanied in their search for housing or language courses, in their administrative procedures, in their enrolment in school for young children or at university for older children and in their efforts to find a job ... or just to have a coffee and chat a little! The goal is, as and when, they feel as independent as possible. Nevertheless, autonomy does not mean solitude: we conceive RANA as a big family, where everyone finds his place. That's why we encourage refugees who have been helped to become sponsors themselves as soon as they feel ready.
