Almost two years ago, I had to flee to Portugal, fearing for my life, leaving my beautiful country, Iran. SPEAK taught me not only the Portuguese language but it inspired me with the power of humankind.
SPEAK is a project with aims to connect migrants, refugees and locals through a language and culture exchange programme. Through our sessions and through our events, we encourage our members to integrate and become part of our community, helping those without friends or family in Portugal to feel a sense of belonging in their new city. We have thousands of kind and generous members in our community!
