The cooperative OUNI, the first organic food store without packaging in Luxembourg, does not stop at offering an ecological alternative to conventional supermarkets. It is also committed to a more societal dimension and contributes, among other things, to the integration of refugees arriving in Luxembourg.
To this effect OUNI has entered into a partnership with RYSE (Reaching Youth Refugees through Support and Empowerment), offering refugees the opportunity to become active members of the cooperative. RYSE aims to support the success and empowerment of young refugees in working life in Luxembourg through a mentoring project that promotes social integration by including them in volunteer activities and assists them in the acquisition and development of personal skills.
As part of this partnership, the OUNI cooperative is looking for sponsors, individuals or companies, to offer a share of the company to refugees (each share has a value of €100). Meanwhile RYSE trains active members to work in the store and keeps track of their situation.
