ADAPT2ME Inc. LAUNCHES FREE LANGUAGE TRAINING FOR REFUGEES THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH ECHO REFUGEE LIBRARY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Montreal, QC, Wednesday, September 7, 2016– Join us Friday evening 6-8pm, September 9 as we launch our Adapt2me Cares initiative in partnership with ECHO Refugee Library to provide free online language training for asylum seekers in a refugee camp located in Vasilika, Greece. The event will also include a photo exhibit titled “We Are Them” and take place at the Language Research and Development Group Inc. Office, where the Adapt2me office is located.

Adapt2me Cares, is an initiative to provide FREE access to online ESL & FSL language training to all refugees. As a company, we are supporting language training for refugees with a 6-month subscription to our online content and 18 hours of tutoring.

The Echo Refugee Library project exists to give the residents of the Vasilika refugee camps the opportunity to pursue their education and career aspirations. Echo Refugee Library provides a mobile library to service refugee camps throughout northern Greece. The mobile library consists of a reading and recreational space, access to online courses and learning tools. The library also provides support in research and applying to scholarship opportunities. With the partnership of Adapt2me Cares the library will continue to offer online ESL and FSL language training in preparation for official certifications such as TOEFL/IELTS, university entry language exams and resettlement procedures.

This partnership is made possible through the humanitarian efforts of Celine de Richoufftz and Gabrielle Kacha, both students at McGill University studying International Development. Celine and Gabrielle will share their experience of working in the Vasilika camp during this past summer. This partnership also demonstrates the tactical social impact technology plays in the role of solving global issues by providing solutions in a time of crisis.

There will be a silent auction for the pieces in the photo exhibit. All proceeds will be given to ECHO Refugee Library to continue its services to asylum seekers. Those wanting to make a donation can do so at: https://chuffed.org/project/refugeelibrary. Entry to the event is free.
