Navigating higher education systems in unfamiliar countries isn’t easy.
We create networks for students in similar situations to share ideas, offer support and build a community. Each participant is matched with a mentor who was affected by displacement and is now in a higher education program.
“The workshop helped me meet new lovely people. People who came in [to the workshop] shared their stories and the circumstances that they have been through so it allows you to look at a situation from different angles.”

Peer-to-peer support can prove to be just as crucial as the core skills and guidance workshops, by providing them with a social base which they can lean on and turn to for support.
“The social relations that develop in the workshop between the students provide psychological support. These relations can open new doors for me in life.”
