Introduction to ConnectionHub
ConnectionHub is a UK-registered charity offering blended learning programmes to refugees and asylum seekers in Lesbos, Greece.
Currently, the lack of educational opportunities leaves refugees and asylum seekers in Lesbos, Greece exposed to a future of social exclusion, precarious employment, exploitation, and poverty. ConnectionHub's mission is to provide education and integration opportunities via blended learning pathways to people in crisis and conflict contexts, in order to reduce this human suffering and exploitation. Blended learning, which utilises both online and offline educational material and support, is proven to better facilitate student's learning journey; with this approach we hope to give refugees and asylum seekers the chance to develop new skills that will build their capacities as individuals, help them bridge the literacy gap, and support them to change the trajectory of their lives by creating job opportunities and economic empowerment.
ConnectionHub's programmes are accessible to displaced people regardless of legal status, gender, age, or ethnic identity and we have found that our programmes have been particularly attractive to the young adult population (ages 18-30) on Lesbos. Like a "Happy Family", ConnectionHub is highly concerned with the education, well-being and social development of young people and our programmes are designed accordingly.
