PARTNER: For 5 years, the association "Rise Hub" is working actively on the development of the Valle di Comino, also through the organisation of workcamps. The association "Rise Hub" was established in 2015 in Valle di Comino, a rural area composed of many small towns surrounded by mountains between the cities of Rome (120km) and Naples (180km) with an increasingly intercultural composition of the population. The association aims to create a connection between unemployed youngsters, migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers living on the territory, with local institutions and private firms. Its members are mainly women, girls, and refugees, and it counts with several volunteers of different ages and backgrounds.
