By BBN Staff: On July 1, 2019, 23 asylum seekers graduated from the English as a Second Language (ESL) program offered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), through their partner Help for Progress in collaboration with the University of Belize.
The B2 level of the program started in September 2018 and culminated on July 1, 2019.
The students took the A2 level program last year when it was offered at the Help for Progress Resource Center before it was transferred to the University of Belize.
UNHCR offers asylum seekers the opportunity to take ESL classes in an effort to help them integrate into their new communities, and to ensure that they can contribute in a positive manner to the society as a whole.
The ceremony was held at the Jaguar Auditorium at the Belmopan Campus of the University of Belize, and was attended by the students along with their families, representatives of the Help for Progress, representatives from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and representatives from the Regional Language Center at the University of Belize.
Among attendees were representatives from the Institute for Technical Vocational Education and Training Cayo.
