Donations and Support

After an extremely successful intensive 6-week course (see below and here) for 5 groups of refugees from the war in Ukraine, we were able to extend the course for the academic year 2022/3 for 6 groups and again in 2023-24 for 7 groups. Watch and listen to some of the course participants in this video appeal.

If you would like to see more of our course participants speaking, you will find an extended version of the above video here.

Our core aims remain unchanged. As English is a skill for life and social mobility, these courses aim to do three things:

  1. Improve basic English skills
  2. Help with skills and language needed to apply for jobs and working in an English speaking environment
  3. Put refugees in a position to gain an internationally recognised qualification in English (ESOL)

Our current funding objective is to raise enough funds to enable as many refugees as possible to extend their group studies free of charge to the end of May 2024 and to allow for a a new intake of students in the coming academic year.

Donations Guide: 400€ will pay for books for 1 group for one academic year. 800€ will sponsor 1 student through 1 academic year. 3750€ buys a book for every student in the 2024/25 academic year. 6400€ will pay for one group to study for an academic year. 44800€k will pay for the basic costs of the entire year for 6 groups. However, please remember, no donation is too small or too big! All contributions big and small will be gratefully received and put to good use.

Notes and queries to: refugees@ilstallinn.ee


Learn about our original English4Refugees project in Spring 2022 here:

The cost of running this first 6-week intensive course (course info here) was about €35K. This was greatly reduced by great support from sponsors and volunteers but we are still hoping to raise funds to provide follow up courses – especially important for the lower levels. No donation is too small!

Several course participants do not own a laptop computer and as  much of the courseware we are using is digital, We are also appealing for new or slightly used computers. Please contact refugees@ilstallinn.ee if you or your company can donate a machine (Mac or PC).
