The refugee crisis has had an impact all across Europe with thousands of young people suddenly finding themselves in new place. All of them with their own hopes and dreams of a better life. Here we take a closer look at the stories of Hasan, Ajmal and Zia, three young Park Inn team members that each have a powerful story to tell.
After arriving in Belgium as refugees, social workers placed the boys in Don Bosco, a vocational school which admits youngsters without papers and gives them specialized support and follow-up. In the refugee centers they all learnt and took Dutch classes. All three have since taken jobs at Park Inn by Radisson Leuven where they continue to develop and build a brighter future.
This is the story of how Hassan, Ajmal and Zia found not only a job in Belgium, but a path to a brighter future with the opportunity to learn & develop where everyone benefits.
The “Adding Color to Lives” project at Park Inn by Radisson connects hotels with their local communities. One of the main goals of the project is to give young people from difficult backgrounds, the chance to express themselves. As part of the project, Park Inn by Radisson Leuven works closely together with local youth organizations and schools like Minor N’Dako and Don Bosco in hopes of making an impact in people’s lives.
