Migrants and Refugees as Rebuilders – Transforming lives through learning

Migrants and refugees as rebuilders logoInitiatives of Change in the UK is the lead coordinator in a new three-year Erasmus+ project that has been announced to improve the training of migrants and refugees through adult education.

Migrants and Refugees as Re-Builders (KA2 Cross-borders Intercultural and Societal Entrepreneurs) is a partnership of organisations from the UK, Turkey, Sweden and Spain who are developing innovative training responses to support migrants and refugees from the Horn of Africa, the Middle East, Magreb and Latin America. The project is aimed at supporting adult educators of migrants and refugees in settling into their new communities, re-building their lives, and eventually contributing to the development of their home countries.

Dr Muna Ismail, Joint Project Coordinator, and a former refugee herself, said: 'Migration is one of the biggest humanitarian challenges facing Europe today. We believe in supporting migrants and refugees in re-building their lives, and welcoming their contribution to society. We believe education is the solution in helping achieve this. We are excited to partner with likeminded organisations and have the support of the Erasmus+ programme.'
