TELF grants from Bishops’ Appeal

Monday January 8th 2018

The Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal is making a small number of grants available to people who wish to get TEFL qualifications so that they can teach English to refugees and migrants here in Ireland.

The charity said: “The vast majority of our work is overseas, but when we responded to the refugee crisis, we did so in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq and then in Greece, Germany and Hungary. We felt that it was appropriate to also support responses locally.

“Often, the most powerful impact on a person’s experience of conflict and loss and the precarious journey that ensues when they flee is the welcome and friendship from the community where they are resettled.”
