Refugees online e.v. provides computers and free Internet access in refugee accommodation facilities. In line with demand, it also provides training courses for the refugees about the usage of computers, smart-phones and the Internet. The service motivates qualified refugees to become trainers and in this way they are able to offer courses in languages other than English. The internet access also helps to cope with the situation being away from their homecountries and their families.
