V-consult arranged the first of five weekend gatherings to build an integration network of Somali women in Norway.
Safia Abdi Haase was program coordinator and did a fantastic job.
46 Somali women, together with their 81 children spent the weekend discussing issues such as:
– negative social control,
– how to mix positive cultural elements from your previous homeland with those of your new homeland.
Open and honest discussion and grassroots contact are keys to starting a more positive integration process
