Training is essential in order to carry out a real integration in the host country. Learning how to speak the language is not enough, understanding how things work and adapting to them is also just as necessary as comprehending the differences. The more knowledge there is about the circumstances to expect, the resistance and negative reaction to integration can be minimized.
The language is undoubtedly the most powerful and essential tool for a complete integration of refugees in the host country. Not only because it determines their ability to function on a daily basis in society and to become a productive member of such, but because through the language the way to understand the world in their new environment is also transmitted.
Europe has a long history of migration all around the world and no one can understand better than the Europeans the specific characteristics of the great migrations caused by war. Promoting a welcoming culture should not be limited to just a sign of solidarity, it should also be understood as a gesture of historical responsibility and social coherence.
In order to undertake this important task, it is necessary to have the society´s collaboration at all levels. Governments, civilians and private entities, given that the necessary resources have such a great magnitude as the task that wants to be undertaken. To optimize these resources it is important to design well-targeted projects and initiatives for a maximum impact using the appropriate means.
Offering a preparation for a complete integration of migrants including language, social work, cultural sensitivity and integration instructions does not mean a significantly higher cost and yet the potential benefits are exponentially greater. A diligent and well channeled integration reduces the time during which the state needs to bear the cost of receiving a migrant, thereby compensating the short term increase, if the refugee also receives proper training on how to function in the labor culture of the host country and instructions on how to deal with cultural differences, the necessary time for a major integration in the economic sphere is reduced and if there is an economic stability, the social integration will come quickly.
In the VEITH Foundation we intend to put our knowledge, experience and resources at the service of integration. During the first phase of our initiative we will open a center in Berlin in order to apply our method of learning German (the fastest and most efficient nowadays) to refugees coming from Syria and other countries at war in the area. Our R & D department, under the direction of Dr. Daniel Veith is already adapting the method to the Arabic language (considering that it is based on comparative grammar) and it is being adapted with the concrete idea of a rapid integration to the economic activity and respect towards the cultural and religious sensibilities of our guests.
Our clear commitment is to promote integration through education and language, supporting the groups with less access to language learning or whose particular needs require it urgently.
The humanitarian crisis with Syrian refugees requires immediate action. That is why we intend to move language teachers, social workers and training staff to assist in their integration process.
Gender inequality in the traditionally male chauvinist countries denies, in many cases, girls and young women a possibility to develop themselves academically and personally. This is why we launched a program to support women.
Integrating means accepting the other as an equal. Tolerance, understanding, empathy and achieving a strong sense of community are the wisest way to overcome radical stances.
We are proposing a titanic task and all help is welcome, we need writers, volunteer translators and spreading our message in the media and the social networks. If you want to collaborate with us you are welcomed!
We put our many years of experience in pedagogy, language teaching and research at the service of integration. We firmly believe that our contribution will make a significant difference.
We grant the Johann Martin Schleyer award to linguistic research. This grant means an academic urge towards excellence in research and its destined to promote the dept of language knowledge.
Language teaching for migrants and refugees must be accompanied by a fair amount of social work and of a responsible cultural sensitivity in regards to the treatment of differences in order to lessen the impact of changes to the country.
We have allocated significant resources for our task, but the magnitude of the intended task is huge. You can help us financially to achieve all of our initiatives. Every help is welcome and moves us towards our goal.
Our objective is to found the VEITH University, that will be dedicated to support and strengthen socio-economical and above all, intellectual development in developing countries through the implementation of branches.
Integration is the desirable goal and certainly the most beneficial for both the migrant and the native society. It offers significant social and economic benefits. Accelerating this process is wise and necessary..
The largest possible peacekeeping power is empathy and mutual understanding. This can only be achieved when they are fully integrated into the social environment of which they are a member, with the emotional bonds that are born from daily life, solidarity and mutual experience.
