Information about the project
MigraLingua.org
Initiated and coordinated by ICVolunteers, MigraLingua is a programme which aims to accompany migrants who arrived in a country where they not master the local language. It assists migrants in their daily tasks in particular those linked to school and education. The programme has three main axes: networking of actors involved in migration, training of community interpreters and linguistic support for families. Online tools and the MigraLingua web portal are essential for this work. MigraLingua is affiliated with the World Network for Linguistic Diversity (Maaya).
