"My Story": Brigitte, France (complementary video 1)
Despite a financial struggle, Brigitte was able to carry on training thanks to the PLIE (Lille’s Plan for Integration and Employment), a programme backed by the European Social Fund. For more than a year, she has been mentored by a team of employment counsellors who helped her get income support when she needed it most.
The video series “My Story” is about ordinary people beating the odds. Well-timed support from the European Social Fund (ESF) helped them to improve their skills and find work.
