Previously, Person 1 was working at a cleaning company. Due to social problems Person 1 lost her job in 2007. Unable to pay the rent she were forced to move and stay with friends and in shelters. Six years later, Person 1 received help from the social services and was assigned a housing through a housing program. Through Instutition 1 and Coffee For Change Person 1 was able to return to work and is now one of our professional barista.
Due to war and conflict, Person 2 was forced to leave her homeland to escape for safety in Sweden. Here she found the opportunity to start a new life. As the war had forced her to interrupt her studies, finding an employment in the new country was proved difficult. Through basic training at the SFI (Swedish for immigrants) and Coffee For Change person 2 has now begun her first employment in Sweden as a professional barista.
Since 2011, Person 3 has moved back and forth between short term accommodation and shelters. In recent years she has been working provisionally with selling the Swedish magazine "Situation Stockholm", committed to find herself a fulltime job. Through a contact at the social services, she was recommended to apply for a jobb at Coffee For Change. Today, she has worked for the company for over 5 months.
When Emelie was offered to participate in the arrangement and organizing of the yet nonexistent Coffee For Change, her instinctive feeling was that this could generate something great. The previous experience of working with people in vulnerable situations together with a fantastic team of colleagues, friends and sponsors it became possible to implement the idea.
We are proud and grateful to be working with institutions and companies such as Insitution 1, Instutition 2 and Company 3, who together have contributed with their great support and guidance.
