Equality for All in Malta

Equality for All in Malta is a Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC)-funded project aiming to tackle the issue of underreporting. This 2-year project will target Race and Ethnic Minorities and Religious Minority organisations, and the public in the following ways: 

1. Development and delivery of training to members of minorities, who may include victims of discrimination based on religion or belief, race and/or ethnic origin, and/or multiple discrimination, to empower them to enjoy their rights and the new remedies laid down in the law. - Training for 120 representatives of religious belief and race and ethnic minorities, who will subsequently train around 20 members each in their own organisations, a total of around 2400 persons.  These training sessions will be held between Quarter 3 and Quarter 6 of the project.

2. Raising awareness on EU Directives and new national legislation related to discrimination based on religion or belief, race and/or ethnic origin, and/or multiple discrimination, on intercultural understanding and equal opportunities, targeting the general public, a maximum of around 475,000 persons. The awareness-raising campaign will take place in Quarter 5 of the project.

3. Development of an outreach model targeting the grassroots, through local councils, to bring them on board in the fight against discrimination. - Outreach to 68 local councils to develop further non-discrimination tools for action at the local level already utilised in a migrant integration setting, who can in turn reach the general resident population. The Community Equality Officers will be responsible for this outreach throughout the length of the project.

This project is being carried out in partnership with aditus foundation, European Network against Racism (ENAR) and European Network on Religion and Belief (ENORB).
