We are helping asylum-seekers recover from forced displacement in Vienna. We are doing this by offering educational assistance intended to prevent displaced children from falling behind during this vulnerable time in their lives. We are raising awareness of this need among local churches and schools, inviting them to join us in becoming part of the solution.
Austria was overwhelmed in 2015 when nearly 90,000 men, women and children sought asylum there. In order to try and slow the influx of asylum-seekers, the government plans to erect fences along it's borders with Italy, Slovenia and Hungary.
