Te contamos de qué trata
In 2811 we decided to find in migration an opportunity for systemic change, cultural transformation and inclusion. For this reason, Hola América and Hola Colombia INNpacta strengthen the ecosystems of social innovation for migration in Chile, Argentina and Colombia, with the aim of improving the quality of life of those who decide to migrate or take refuge in these countries. Both initiatives identify, strengthen, and provide direct support to social ventures or solutions in the scaling stage that are generating innovative systemic change in the face of the problems and challenges faced by the migrant, returnee, and host population.
To address the set of problems usually associated with migration, Hola América and Hola Colombia INNpacta work on the following axes:
- Innovation: Accelerate and strengthen social enterprises and innovative solutions for migrants or that have a positive impact on the migrant population. In Colombia, there is an emphasis on the economic inclusion of the migrant population.
- Construction of a migration ecosystem: Connect the migrant community and social innovators with key actors and decision makers, in order to promote and contribute to systemic change.
- Elaboration of narrative: Influence the change of narrative through life stories, success stories of enterprises and spaces of identification, so that we all know that migrants come to change, innovate and contribute to the host countries. All people are agents of change and the biggest and most difficult undertaking that someone can do is to migrate.
Both programs, developed in conjunction with Ashoka, are born from the initiative of Hello World and Helo Europe, which have been implemented for more than 5 years in Europe. Currently, Hola Colombia INNpacta is being co-executed with Ashoka and Universidad Ean.
Hola América and Hola Colombia INNpacta work for results in the following axes: 1) strengthening social innovations that provide solutions to the most pressing challenges faced by migrant and refugee communities in Chile, Argentina and Colombia; 2) strengthening of the innovation ecosystem to maximize the impact and incidence in public policies; and 3) change of narrative around migrant and refugee communities.
