Learning brings unity and understanding. That's what we believe at Dunkirk Adult Learning Centre.
Here is the new learning and library space in the Women and Children's Centre. Some women were hesitant to come to the learning centre and some are prevented by their husbands; so we've taken the learning to them. This group of volunteers and refugees, photographed below speak 7 languages between them and have no common language, but learning, reading and chatting together is good.
We're looking for a voluteer Women's Educator. Do message for our volunteer advert if you think you might be interested.
