Trainers for JRS Malta’s Project ‘Refugee Empowerment and Action for Community Transformation’ (REACT)

REACT aims to facilitate and promote the integration of asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection by enhancing their capacity to act as agents of change and foster a culture of welcome and inclusion in Maltese society by raising awareness of their experience.

Through the project we will recruit 8 asylum seekers and provide them with training aimed at enabling them to effectively engage in awareness raising activities among school children. The training will cover the following topics: language; human rights and effective communication.

General Information:

As part of this project JRS Malta is looking to sub-contract trainers to plan and implement a  1-day course in each of the following subject areas:

  • Maltese History and Culture
  • Human Rights (focus on refugee rights)
  • Communication and Public Speaking Skills

The individuals selected must consult with the Project’s Coordinator when planning the training to ensure the final training programmes reflect the overall aims of the project. JRS Malta reserves the right to request changes to the training content as is deemed necessary by the organisation. 

Request Details:
