Learning together: Educational ‘godparents’ help migrant children study
Starting afresh in a new country is hard enough for refugees and migrants. For children, who by law have to attend school, it can be even harder; settling into a new school system as soon as they can after learning enough of the host country’s language. That’s why in Dresden, for the last ten years, the association "Ausländerrat Dresden e.V." has been offering an educational mentorship program, matching children with educational ‘godparents’ who can help guide them through their studies in Germany.
