Many English tutoring programs are only available to refugees once they are out of camps. Due to the nature of refugee camps, in-camp education can be unstable and easily disturbed. Fires, inclement weather, and funding cuts disrupt programs without warning. Classes are often overcrowded and have waitlists. This makes it difficult for students to receive personalized attention at their level. ELNOR is unique because unlike a traditional in-person classroom, our completely virtual tutoring model offers individuals 1:1 attention, with flexibility and stability to participate whenever is best for them.

ELNOR’s mission as an edtech startup is to provide English learning materials and 1:1 tutoring to adults living in refugee camps. We believe that language learning allows for self-expression for those who are seeking relief and brings professional and social opportunities when establishing a new life.

Our vision is to:

  • Use technology to cover educational needs for camps globally 
  • Improve social inclusion, employability and wellbeing of refugees
  • Support students and their language qualifications after resettlement 
  • Increase awareness about issues affecting refugees
  • Unite global citizens to advocate for a world in which refugee camps don’t exist

We are a multinational group of English teachers, former UN assistants, and graduate students from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) who are dedicated to serving refugees. We have witnessed how education and dialogue among people of different lived experiences can have a positive ripple effect on lives. Based on field research with volunteers at refugee camps across Europe, we found a need to bring these life changing educational services to those looking to learn English.
