Reception centres and pre-integration education for refugees

In autumn 2015, Viittakivi reacted to the vast numbers of asylum seekers entering the country by establishing reception centres in three locations. During 2015 and 2016, Viittakivi has delivered reception services to the Immigration Office. In Viittakivi’s reception centres, pre-integration education has been organised in co-operation with the University of Eastern Finland.
