This project was a firm and decided initiative towards the integration of the immigrants who choose to live and work in our countries. The immigrant population represents an essential factor of economic development and there are many immigrants who need the establishment of social networks for the normalization of the access to the available resources connected to the problem of accommodation, health, education, social services, work, etc. In order to achieve this, it is necessary that the administration, as well as the civil society as a whole, private companies, social agents, etc. join their efforts to make the most of the resources available and to contribute to the creation of a climate of intercultural co‐existence.
