Muu kulttuurityö | Yksivuotinen

A Walk to the Museums is a project combining physical exercises, in this case walking, and cultural attendance, visiting museums and important cultural areas in the city, in order to increase the physical activity of women with migrant background and to enhance their sense of belonging to the community they leave in, thus supporting their empowerment. Many researches have shown that the level of participation in sports of migrant women is much lower than that of migrant men. Our main goal is to improve and sustain the health of the participants, but also to encourage them to integrate, to be active members of the local community. The specific objectives of the project are the increase in the level of physical activity of the migrant women; increase in knowledge about the local community’s history and culture; Increase in the feeling of belonging to the community/city where they live and better integration.
