Since January 2016, in action following the migrational influx, EDS has invested with refugees, primarily from Afghanistan. A program, known as Renaissance, was born in the hopes to reach this people group and aid them in their inclusion in French society. Renaissance is an educational project aimed to give refugees an opportunity to understand French history and values in order to facilitate their integration in this country. We also offer individual accompaniment through various administrative processes. We hold weekly meetings, each with a different focus.
Our goal is to overcome fear through compassion, to see others as they truly are by taking care of them and establishing meaningful relationships.
