Help Refugees in Limbo Access Education
REFUGEE LEARNING NEST
Refugee Learning Nest is a refugee community-based learning center for asylum seekers and refugee students from around the world from age 6 to 18 till middle-level grade.
Since the formation of the school, our purpose has been to provide the best quality level of education that we can.
Our students are from different backgrounds and don't speak the same language but thankfully that is not something that would stop us from educating them. Not letting these children grow up without any education has been the reason to start a school in the middle of nowhere. Additionally, the school is not exclusive to children but all refugees seeking education.
When new students join the Nest they will be taught English as enabling step until we are convinced that they are able to learn other subjects which they are taught in English.
Our main focus with the funding is to renew lease agreement, provide books, stationery, public transport for our volunteers, and internet services which enable our students to connect with online education.
WHO WE ARE?
The Refugee Learning Nest (the Nest) was established in March 2015 by seven members of the refugee community in Indonesia and with the support of Same Skies. The aim of the project is to improve the welfare of the refugee community through the provision of various activities and informal learning. It is based on volunteer engagement and community involvement. Refugees from diverse backgrounds are welcome at the Nest to work in different fields and learn more. The Nest is a community-based project, therefore it belongs to people from all races, nationalities, religions, and countries. We are happy to be transparent and work with all refugees, including children. The Nest works through the co-operation and support of our community to become a sustainable and lasting project.
