ReFOCUS Media Labs / Media skills for refugees

The prime goal of ReFOCUS is to close young refugees’ education gap that occurs due to war, persecution, lack of education and training opportunities and long time spent in refugee camps. We train refugees in photography, audio and video production, graphic design, media editing, web design, storytelling and computer literacy. It allows students to not only express themselves artistically but also develop modern media creation skills, making them competitive on a job market and increase their chances for sustainable employment. Some early successes include 12 students obtained certificates in intro photography and 17 in video production.
