EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN WITH FOREIGN BACKGROUND IN ICELAND
Esja Edu Language & Culture School provides free Icelandic classes/tutoring support for children where both parents or a primary custody single parent have a foreign background and do not speak fluent Icelandic and English.
If you want to register to our support program, send us an email with the name of the child, kennitala, both parents' country of origin, child's language skills, child's year moved to Iceland, parent's phone number.
Due to COVID-19, this program is offered irregularly on selected weekends. Please be in touch.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION
Women from developing nations whose immigration status is dependent on their marriage face higher risks of domestic violence. If you are in an arranged international marriage in Iceland or know someone who is, send us a line. Our volunteer workers would like to check on their status.
