Idea Sketch


Idea pitch

Providing jobs is the main approach of integration into society - solving problems preventive.
Based on the idea – food connects people - at Topfreisen refugees are cooking food from their home countries for local people. In the future we are planning our “Topfreisen Academy” – a training course for refugees in gastronomy with the main aim to give them a quicker and easier excess to the labor market in Europe.

Where will your idea take place?

Vienna and surroudnings

Why does Europe need your idea?

With our idea we are aiming a win-win situation at all levels.
Refugees getting a qualified training programm which gives them an easier and sustainable access to the labor market in austria –preventing problems such as dependency from the state and negative perception from locals.

What is your impact?

We are aiming a successful and sustainable integration of refugees into the Austrian labor market – creating a positive future prospective for refugees and a solving the acute manpower shortage in gastronomy and tourism businesses in Austria.

How do you get there?

Our charity association has been the first one in Austria offering caterings carried out by refugees – they were cooking food from their homecountries and serving it to local people. Going a step further we are planing a Topfreisen Academy - extensive training course in gastronomy for refugees in our co-working kitchen where they will learn all needed skills to start in one of europeans gastronomy/tourisme businesses to provide a quicker access to the labor market.

What is your story?

I want to be part of a peaceful and united Europe. Kowing about the inequality and barriers I see it as my responsibility to contribute to a world want to live in by taking action - thinking I can do best by provinding jobs.

Who are you doing it for?

Our two main target groups are refugees and busniness in gatronomy with acute manpower shortage.

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?
