Mission: To support unaccompanied minors and young refugees in exercising their human right to education and school and to participate in society.

Where they work: Germany

Our partnership:  We supported SchlaU from 2016 to 2018 with unrestricted grant funding.

Loosely translated as ‘smart school’, SchlaU-Schule is Europe’s first school to be exclusive for 16-25 year-old refugees. The school creates its own educational materials to teach the German curriculum, whilst providing language lessons, legal assistance and psychological support.
The majority of SchlaU’s students are still in the asylum process but within 2 years of attending SchlaU over 90%  receive their school-leaving qualification. Due to a strong focus on vocational skills and employment, including a compulsory 2-week internship for final-year students, the majority of graduates find an apprenticeship right after graduation or get enrolled into other education institutions.
