Balobeshayi is a social cooperative facilitating the integration of migrants in urban spaces.

We do that by fostering a dialogue between new arrivals and previous residents. Through the production of video, intercultural dialogue training and consultation we create a healthy communication on the subjects of migration and international development.

Our work is the result of a thorough research, cooperation and innovation to achieve tangible changes.

Balobeshayi in the Congolese language, Tshiluba, means “We convinced you”. It aims to change the narrative on migration to better include, integrate and have a dialogue.
