Preliminary Reception Education Centre for Unaccompanied Minor Foreigners in Amorebieta-Etxano
Since the opening in October 2005, we manage the Preliminary Reception Centre for Unaccompanied Minor Foreigners. The first months in Berriz and since February 2006 in Amorebieta.
From the daily work of more than forty community workers and teachers and with a well-established educational project that allows the objective of getting ready for emancipation:
- We carry out the preliminary reception and custody of the unaccompanied under-age foreigners who arrive to the historical territory of Bizkaia.
- We normalise the psychosocial situation of these minors (basic, affective, and social needs).
- We start an educational itinerary that will enable a better objective future for which they have made the trip.
Since October 2005 until today more than 6300 minors have come to the centre.
