Some activities run by Dublin City of Sanctuary include:
Sanctuary in Nature & Heritage
Sanctuary in Nature & Heritage offers opportunities to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers to enjoy Irish wildlife, landscapes and built heritage, and to share their stories of nature and heritage in their own countries with Irish people.
Sanctuary in Politics
Dublin City of Sanctuary run activities to ensure that migrants, refugees and asylum seekers should be provided with opportunities to learn how to protect their rights and navigate the political system in Ireland.
Sanctuary in Business & Enterprise
This activity supports entrepreneurs from a migrant background to start their own businesses. In addition we offer technology internships and support people to access employment.
Sanctuary in Greek Camps
The Sanctuary in Greek Camps activity is driven by a desire to improve the dire human rights situation of asylum seekers trapped in camps on the Greek islands.
Sanctuary in Faith
The concepts of Sanctuary and Hospitality are prominent in many different religions and espressions of faith. Sanctuary in Faith seeks to build support for the City of Sanctuary movment and to engage faith communities in helping to make our city a place of welcome for those seeking sanctuary.
Your contribution is most welcome and valued, and could be used for example:
- to finance a bus for a Nature & Heritage trip for those in the International Protection Process to experience the wonderful nature & heritage of Ireland
- to help a migrant led business build a website or pay the fees necessary to start a new business
- to help run a creative event celebrating our cultures, such as financing lunches or transport to events
- to finance the everyday costs we incur, on Zoom, printing etc, that to date has often been carried by our volunteers
It is our belief, that when organisations, groups and projects include people seeking sanctuary in their activities, personal relationships will be formed which will lead to greater understanding and support. Our focus is on ensuring that the process of working for a culture of hospitality and inclusion will benefit all migrant groups, as well as host communities.
