Getting plucked off a boat in a strange land is only the first step on an incredible journey for refugees escaping chaotic wars.
We will enable tutors to teach where the refugees are located eliminating the barriers (i.e. child care, travel and transportation costs). It's the quickest most efficient way to get language teachers to refugees. Tootyr.com (a free web app for finding local tutors) will match all funds raised for live one-to-one and group language lessons for refugee families while providing employment for tutors.
Canada is stretched to keep up with the demands of over 25,000 Syrians arriving in just three months, so agencies have stopped offering 27 federally funded courses this summer.
With your help, refugees can start learning our language and navigate the next stage of their journey in becoming Canadians.
