SB Espoir is a project that works directly in the accommodation centers that host young asylum-seeking minors and women, conducting life skills and psychosocial support activities that support them for their new life in Brussels, it has been active in Brussels, from working with young people arriving to Park Maximillian in 2015 on an ad-hoc and needs-based basis to now.
Within SB Espoir, in 2019 we piloted an extension of activities with a women and girls center in Jette called “Son Choix, Son Avenir” (her choices, her future). This project focuses on promoting social inclusion, personal development and access of opportunities for asylum-seeking girls and women.
Our mission is to help refugees rebuilding their lives. For this purpose, we build sustainable projects focused on education, empowerment and humanitarian aid.
We prioritize women and children because they face greater challenges to their safety and well-being.
Fostering the integration and inclusion of unaccompanied minors and families seeking asylum in Belgium
Building a bridge with and between local and international community of volunteers
Building partnerships with local, European and international actors
Empowering beneficiaries to be able to return to their country of origins
Provide more spaces, opportunities, resources and programmes to foster dialogue and social cohesion, and combat discrimination and segregation.
Our vision is a world where women and children can feel safe, hopeful, healthy, and where they are able to shape their own future.
