The Asylum Seeker Program has been BUZZING with up to 6 asylum seekers coming for english tutoring each day on top of our already busy young women’s program!
The Asylum Seeker program began last year, after we were approached by Australian Red Cross for a pilot program. The demand has continued into this year and we have been glad to offer our assistance!
We have a mixture of predominantly Afghani and Iranian refugees, a number of whom have young children and are grateful for the chance to be able to bring their children along to be cared for while they practice their english.
Having our dedicated regular volunteers helps us with being able to offer 1-1 or 1-2 assistance with english literacy skills has been invaluable to us and to the students!
