Passerell is a non-profit organisation. We seek to foster the development of connections between asylum seekers and refugees on the one hand, and the residents of Luxembourg and the Great region on the other hand. We also support asylum seekers and refugees in exercising their rights.
Ignorance of the asylum application procedure
Organising regular group events involving refugees and residents
Lack of knowledge of Luxembourgish institutional landscape
Limited interaction with residents
Creating « tandems » between refugees and residents
Centralising relevant information
Lack of confidence for discovering new languages and a new environment
History of Passerell
Catherine and Cassie met in spring 2015. They were both volunteering in the Don Bosco and Lily Unden refugee homes of the Luxembourgish Red Cross. They began by serving meals and coordinating a course of introduction to French. As they came up with ideas to improve the life of asylum seekers they started to develop contact with existing organisations and finally set up their own project in February 2016. The project gained momentum when it was granted subsidies by the Oeuvre Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, following the Mateneen call for projects.
The Organisation was joined by Sarra, Noëlle, then came Audrey, Alexandre... and today it has 15 dedicated members.
