Deliver learning programmes
We work with our partners to deliver learning programmes that provide skills and opportunities to refugees of all-ages across East Africa. Xavier Project’s focus over the years has been increasing access and the quality of education. Through partnerships with community-based organisations we’ve learnt that programmes can be delivered more sustainably; be tailored to the needs of the community; and reach those most in need when interventions are led by refugees themselves. We have developed specific learning courses with our partners and work with institutions and donors to provide skills that are needed and relevant to each context.
