Lifeline Afghanistan helps to facilitate the resettlement of ST sponsored Afghan refugees with a specialized focus on education, skills and training and employment support in collaboration with industry, post-secondary institutions, settlement agencies, sponsorship agreement holders and other community groups.
We are also prioritizing supports for youth. Our experience whilst working with the Syrian newcomers has shown how quickly young people were able to learn English and adapt to their new environment and the important role the schools played in helping families navigate their new lives.
We also know the importance of prioritizing mental and physical health for newcomers. Some of these projects include ADaPT, Study Buddy, Pre-arrival Assessment and the Powered by Magnet job matching platform.
