Edlumino are a group of non-political volunteer educators from different countries collaborating to make sure that the children have an opportunity to continue their education, irrespective of their current circumstances. The organisation is currently interested in hearing from current or recently retired teachers who can commit to regular periods of time in France. Edlumino teach an international curriculum mainly in English as many of the refugees speak English as a first or second language. They also hold classes in with French speaking teachers to improve language and communication skills.
A group of teachers are doing their bit for the refugee crisis by volunteering with children in the French refugee camps. The Edlumino team work with public donations to teach in the settlements in Calais and Grande-Synthe to teach the young learners from countries such as Syria, Somalia, Iran, Iraq and Sudan. These teachers focus on an international curriculum of Maths, English, French, Science and Humanities. Those looking to get involved can donate or volunteer at edlumino.org.
