Millennium Fellowship Project: Impact Initiative
Impact Initiative aims to create an empowered community of refugees and students through collective learning. This is done by having UCL students tutor young refugees and asylum seekers, to improve their English speaking, or help apply to university. This will help them integrate universities or the workforce more easily and hopefully open them to new opportunities. With education being such a determinant factor in one's career path, this cause is a priority for us. In all, we hope to give back to the community and enable others like us that are passionate about fighting inequality in access to education to take a step towards Goal 4 of the UN SDG: quality of education. Helping refugees to master English also signifies opening the conversation and giving them a voice to express their needs, feelings, and demands. Bridging this gap of communication can help make a way around this linguistic censorship that adds to their struggle in integrating new societal environments.
