Night ZooKeeper classes for refugee children

This program offers language support for Syrian children living as refugees in a foreign land, often orphaned, and with little access to Arabic or English. Volunteers dedicate their time and skills so that kids can continue to learn their native language from qualified instructors and ultimately preserve their culture. Arabic language instructors have the ability to dial-in via Skype or Zoom to teach kids living in refugee community centers (where approved). 

Beginning in April, we installed the Night Zookeeper language platform as well as Internet connections to create an environment that will allow for collaboration between kids in Japan and Syria by using English and also provide a platform for Arabic language instructors to volunteer to teach online so that Syrian children don’t lose their native language skills.
