“I arrived in Switzerland in May 2014. I was quickly transferred to the canton of Geneva, in a shelter of civil protection. My beginnings were not easy. After a long migratory journey and more than four years of unjustified imprisonment in Eritrea, I needed to blow a little and rebuild myself.
I never gave up, even though the conditions in the shelters were not pleasant at all. I attended rigorously all our French courses at Les Charmilles and several other French courses given for free in several corners of the city of Geneva. Today, I am pleased to have obtained my first volunteer job at Caritas. This helps me improve my French and develop professional skills in sales and transportation of goods. I also made several friends from various countries of the world!“
