we continue our activities with RIAC participants via Whatsapp groups since most of them don’t have laptops or internet connections. Language trainers, job trainers, mentors and speed managers communicate with them through Whatsapp, phone calls, SMS and occasionally via Skype. Due to lack of their access to the internet we couldn’t use any online training tools so far.
At the moment we are trying to activate an educational tool that you can find in https://ecollmobile.com/ .
As online information tools we have Riac and İGAM web sites and social media accounts and İGAM TV , a YouTube channel for the better information about issues concerning corona and migration policies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUTlaOD8CDA
