Microintegration” is a project driven by LoPe, which is an important offer for refugees and immigrants who struggle to find their place in Norwegian society. LoPe has been working over four years in microintegration. With this special method LoPe helped more than 400 people in the last years. The concept aims at closing gaps in the integration process, which the Norwegian authorities are not always able to capture. These gaps and deficits can be the reason why many refugees and immigrants don`t succeed in their integration. Through this and similar work, Microintegration contributes to faster and easier integration, respective training and connection to the labour market, which will lead to public savings and a meaningful life for the concerned target group.
