TUTORING FOR REFUGEES
Educating the Next Generation
WHO WE ARE
Tutoring for refugees provides a stable and easily accessible form of educational support to those who need it the most. Especially given the Coronavirus outbreak, many refugee students have seen their educational resources limited as teachers are less able to address individuals students' personal needs.
WHAT WE DO
Tutoring for Refugees provides students both tutoring services and electronic devices that allow them to better communicate with tutors and others.
Refugee students often need to spend extra time on their academic interests, often due to disadvantages such as language barriers. Tutoring for refugees allows dedicated students to easily seek assistance and further their educational pursuits.
School issued electronic devices are often faulty and as a result, hinder students' abilities to communicate effectively. In order to address this issue, Tutoring for refugees has organized a donation drive for used electronic devices to lend these devices out to refugees who could benefit greatly from improved digital devices.
