SPEAK connects migrants, refugees and locals through language and culture exchange experiences. Through its learning methodology people not only learn with each other but they actually get to know one another, they break barriers and create meaningful relationships of trust and support, building a multicultural community where cultural heritage is cherished and where everyone participates actively.


Participants come together motivated by learning or sharing their language or culture, but in that experience they communicate, break down prejudices, stigmas and create friendships, building an informal support network that facilitates the resolution of their own problems.
