Challenge

Little or no English language skills is a key barrier to accessing education and employment opportunities hence, a key hindrance to moving beyond poverty. Many refugee women are marginalized and have been excluded from accessing the existing English language services partly because the delivery of these services is not culturally sensitive. This project will provide more than 500 marginalized women refugees' language training and support services, delivered in a culturally sensitive environment

Solution

The project will provide English language training, conversation circles and services to refugee women with low or no English language skills. Childcare services will be provided during the training to enable mothers participate. While they learn the new language, they will benefit from interpretation services which bridge to the wider community services.

Long-Term Impact

The project will break the language barriers for more than 300 women supporting them to rise out of poverty, and this will help them provide for their families' health and well-being.
