Have you been a refugee for more than five years? Are you passionate about giving back to and serving your home country?
Then sign up today to participate in Refugees as Re-Builders™ Foundation Course. The course is designed, developed, and run by Initiatives of Change UK. We are now offering the course online due to Covid-19, and so that participants globally can join the course.
What’s the goal of the course? To strengthen the capability and expertise participants already possess as rebuilders, providing them with the resources and practical tools needed to potentially design and facilitate workshops within their diaspora communities and countries of origin. Refugees as Re-Builders™ aims to empower you to contribute to your country of origin and/or diaspora community, by giving you access to knowledge and skills that you may not otherwise receive through academic studies or work experience.
