MOAS Integration Project Received Grant Award For Voluntary Organisation’s Project Scheme

Malta, 10th March 2022.  MOAS will start a new Integration Through Education and Information project that aims to stimulate collaboration and networking between voluntary organisations serving the migrant community in Malta. As announced during the Grant Award Ceremony for the Small Initiatives Support Scheme (SIS) and the Voluntary Organisations Project Scheme (VOPS), MOAS has been awarded a grant to make this project possible.

Through this initiative, MOAS will engage with stakeholders from voluntary organisations and the migrant community to coordinate activities, classes, and information sessions to enhance engagement, independence amongst the migrant community and wider integration. Better coordination among stakeholders and local activity leaders working with the same beneficiary community will also enhance the diversity and breadth of activities available, thus increasing impact by reducing duplication of services.

MOAS Co-founder and Director, Regina Catrambone received the grant award during the annual ceremony, hosted at the Radisson Blu Resort in St Julians and presented by the Hon. Julia Farrugia Portelli (Minister for Inclusion, Social Wellbeing and Voluntary Organisations) and Dr. Noel Camilleri (Chairperson for Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector.)

“We are pleased and grateful for receiving this grant, which will help to improve the integration of the migrant community”, said Regina Catrambone. “Voluntary organisations are an integral part of civil society. Through this project, we aim to strengthen the volunteer sector through capacity building, partnerships, and equality of opportunity”.

This project has been funded through the Voluntary Organisations Project Scheme managed by the Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector.
