Immigrants and Refugees: Lifting barriers to inclusion through Non-Formal Education

The training is designed to help participants (teachers, educators, youth mentors, and VET trainers) deal with learners from refugee backgrounds who often lack language skills or are traumatized by war, preventing them from fully integrating into their “new” home. To minimize the present high dropout rate from school, educators confronted with such challenges must be better educated to know how to deal with these students.

As a result, each educator needs to be supported and trained in refugee rights, language obstacles, mental health, and other topics so that they may involve them in forming connections, nurturing emotional abilities, developing social skills, and coping with discrimination in everyday life. The training’s main emphasis will be developing knowledge of the realities, possibilities, and new tools for establishing a more inclusive society that is free of social exclusion and marginalization.


  1. The participants will learn about the reasons why people leave their homes, and how, while the historical contexts may change, the motivations can be similar.
  2. Connect the causes for immigration to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ human rights.
  3. Become more knowledgeable about the refugee situation and what it means to be a refugee.
  4. Consider how crucial it is to “humanize” individuals who appear to be distant and different from us.
  5. Recognize the value of taking a “little step” when confronted with a challenge that appears insurmountable.
