Language Learning at Norwegian Refugee Council
In Lebanon the Norwegian Refugee Council runs education programmes at community centres, alternative learning spaces, and in schools run by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Educational activities include supporting access to schooling, and finding ways to keep children in school. Non-formal education opportunities are available to reach out-of-school children, such as with "catch-up classes. Training teachers in informal educational methods is one of the organizations core missions. In Lebanon the NRC has established vocational training and language classes for out-of-school youth and young adults.Through our community centres in Iraq, women and girls are provided with safe spaces, where they access gender-based violence prevention and learn skills through social and recreational activities such as sewing, language classes and sports. In Jordan, the NRC provides both children and youth with Arabic, Math and English classes, as well as sports and recreational activities. The NRC additionally provides distant learning programmes for youth.
