“My name is Fadil and I am from Morocco. I am a beneficiary of IOM AVRR programme. I had been living in Greece for 4 years and with IOM Greece help I returned back to my country on July 2017, benefiting with Reintegration assistance.
As I had a 9 year experience as a butcher before migration, I requested to use IOM’ s assistance in order to make my own butcher shop. I benefited from Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration Programme (AVRR) and now I run my own butcher shop in my homeland in Marrakech. IOM Greece staff came recently to evaluate my business and I am really happy to find my shop very neat and clean. I got also a sanitary license from the relevant administrative commune. My business is running well as there are no similar shops in the area. IOM thank you very much, I will never forget this assistance.”
Reintegration is a process that enables the returnee migrant to participate again in the social, cultural, economic and political life of his or her country of origin.
The project "The implementation of Assisted Voluntary Returns including Reintegration measures" (AVRR) is co-funded 75% by Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and 25% by Greek Ministry of Interior.
