The Human Rights League has completed a three-month project on refugee integration focusing on asylum seekers and foreigners with international protection with the goal to improve their education and help them find a place in Slovakia’s labour market, the SITA newswire reported.

At an informal education centre for refugees, volunteers taught asylum seekers seventy hours of the Slovak language. They also held lectures on culture, geography, history and the Slovak legal system. These were enriched with lectures on traditional Slovak crafts, SITA wrote on July 11.

Refugees also held lectures for the public in which they gave Slovaks a chance to learn Arabic, to belly-dance or to participate in workshops on Somali culture which gave Slovaks a chance to learn about the culture of foreigners living in Slovakia, the league’s Katarína Marinová told SITA.
