In May, two groups of persons under international protection gained knowledge about Latvia

Society “Shelter “Safe House”” informs that two study groups concluded the cycle of five lessons planned in the social economic inclusion curriculum in May this year. The total number of persons who learned about Latvia was 55, i.e., 25 adults and 30 children from Syria, Russia, Belarus, Tajikistan and Bangladesh.

Each study group had the opportunity to learn about the state of Latvia, political system, history, culture and traditions and to receive practical information about Latvia and services, inclusion into the society, principles of non-discrimination, communication and religion differences, decision-making, sense of time, market of flats, employment opportunities, education system and opportunities to acquire education, opportunities to spend free time, healthcare system, social security network and social aid system in Latvia. During the lessons, also inclusion of children in training in specific groups was also organized.

In addition to the education course, various informative activities were organized aiming at advancing the inclusion of this target group into the Latvian society. To ensure the chance to learn about the opportunities of acquiring different professions, one of the groups had an educational visit in the beginning of May to the Education Centre “BUTS”. By visiting JSC (AS) “Laima”, the students could learn about the largest chocolate museum in the Baltic States.

Arab, Kurd, Tajic and Bengali language specialists ensured quality communication for the education course students during all educational activities organized by the Society “Shelter “Safe House””.
