After the exile, a school to find a job through training and meetings

in Lyon and Annecy

Our dream : creating links

In 2015, Flora Vidal Marron realized few refugees and local people knew each other.  She created the association so that these two groups of people could meet.

Her dream is to allow all the French stakeholders to build an inclusive and welcoming territory.

... through handcrat skills

Some fields have trouble recruiting people in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, including the catering or textile industry.

Yet, a study realized in 2015 demonstrates that asylum seekers have a lot of skills.

Then, we help them finding a job by offering a training.

Our actions

Creating links between people

Our community brings back together exiled and local people. We allow them to weave the history of their territory together.

Offering a complete content in our trainings

To support the employability of exiled people, we developed free and various programs.

Helping recruiters and companies needs

Weavers helps companies with their lack of labourforces by identifying people they could recruit. We also offers sessions to get to know exile better and break from prejudices.

« Digital classes helped me learning French. During the sewing classes, we really get to know each other. Thanks to Weavers, I realized I had professionnal capacities. »
