Adilah’s objective is the empowerment of a network of voluntary and third sector organisations, which has been promoting activities to support children’s and teenagers’ rights. It focuses on the position of women, particularly on the role of mothers, by activating specialized help desks for support of motherhood and training of young women.

The project is organized within three neighbourhoods which are considered at high risk of marginality: ZEN 2, Ballarò, Noce/Zisa.


Help desk for orientation and work

Its function is to provide information and support to young women of local and foreign origin with the goal of facilitating the process of entering the labour market. They can receive information about the services offered by the network and about further training and job opportunities. A human resources expert is providing orientation courses aimed at the identification of individual competences expendable in the labour market.

Every Thursday from 15:00 to 18:00 |  Office Associazione Per Esempio – Via Saladino 3/5, Palermo.
