- The Association
The Multicultural Association of Satakunta (SMY) was founded 25.3.1996.
SMY is a politically and religiously independent association with the aim to
– help Finnish people and immigrants to get to know one another
– support the cultural identity and native language of immigrants and promote the inclusion of immigrants into the Finnish society
The association operates an International Meeting Point in the center of Pori, which is open for everyone. We offer a variety of courses, clubs and events as well as opportunities for volunteering. In addition, the association serves as an expert in immigration and multicultural issues in the Pori region and carries out various projects.
The association has 550 members, representing 80 different nationalities. 75% of the members are immigrants.
