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.

A New Life in Canada

out site

Montreal, QC

The Government of Canada is welcoming over 55,000 refugees to the country this year. After all of the hardship faced by these newcomers, one of the most difficult aspects of adjusting will be learning to speak a new language.

As a provider of innovative language instruction, we want to do what we can to ease this adjustment to Canadian life. We created Adapt2me Cares to ensure all those who need language training would not face any barriers to access quick, adequate and free solutions.

We are working with community organizations and NGOs to deliver language instruction to newcomers to Canada. Our Adapt2me Cares plan offers newcomers 6 months of free access to our learning platform and 18 hours of individual tutoring.

Below is Ajwad’s story of moving to Canada, using Adapt2me to improve his English and starting a new job through the assistance of Adapt2me! We want to help more new Canadians like Ajwad. If you know of a recent immigrant who is in need of language solutions, right now, direct them to our online platform and iOS mobile app.

Adapt2me, a new approach to building confidence!
