Access to language education and qualifications is vital for people arriving in a new country seeking asylum. Language isn’t simply an optional extra: without the ability to communicate it is impossible to begin to rebuild a life, meet new people, gain education and employment opportunities. 

Language is an integral part of RefuAid's work.

why we work with local partners

The local actors we choose to partner with use a community-centred approach to teaching. Lessons are provided to refugee and local students alike and people sit exams side-by-side regardless of their backgrounds and legal status. Our partners are some of the best in the world, no large bureaucratic processes, they are simply local community members who know and understand how to help better than anyone.
