Fostering expats: Docler Holding supports the AMCHAM ICC project
One of the key ICT players in Luxembourg, Docler Holding, has now joined forces with AMCHAM, the American Chamber of Commerce, to assist expats and their families by supporting them on the local employment market. AMCHAM is following its top mission of taking action against rising social demands by welcoming newcomers, including students, to the region and offering vocational trainings to them.
Docler Holding, a long-term sponsor of AMCHAM, continues to showcase its enthusiasm for the local market by investing in numerous social projects throughout Luxembourg. In addition to the program launched by the International Community of Luxembourg (INTCOMLUX) 4 years ago (providing regular language lessons in Luxembourgish, French, German, English and Portuguese), AMCHAM is now proudly keeping the dream alive by creating an International Community Center (ICC) in Bonnevoie. AMCHAM’s vision and goal is to offer language and training courses to the unemployed as well as trainings in languages, IT and various other industries for post-graduate students. These benefits would also be available to any international students enrolled in the Luxembourgish school system and a whole host of evening classes will start for currently employed people who are looking to develop further professionally.
The ICC has been created following inclusion as a motto and will follow a concept of communities supporting communities. Luxembourg has a proportion of foreigners of more than 46%* so it is key for the ICC to enhance integration through bridge building between communities. The Center is also a door open to everyone to ensure independence and empowering people to be the best they can and want to be.
Insuring a long term support
So far, 33 computers and accompanying desks have been donated, to fully equip the new center. Docler Holding has thus offered great support to enable this incredibly important project to develop. Marton Fulop, COO of Docler Holding, says: “With over 23 different nationalities in our office in Luxembourg, diversity is essential for our development.. We are looking for experts around the world, and we guarantee that, in Luxembourg, families will find a place to settle and grow. Through the ICC project, we can help both foreigners and students to get a foot in the door.”
“This project emphasizes our goal of building communities supporting communities. We are convinced of the need and deeply thankful for the first support we have received from certain companies and asbls. This support already set the major milestones of our journey in making this dream a reality,” states Paul Schonenberg, Chairman and CEO of AMCHAM.
The ICC is at number 7-9 Route de Thionville L-2611 Luxembourg. Feel free to contact the dedicated team of volunteers: 20 600690 / 691849195 or .
