“I fled from Congo with my son right before the Corona came. Life was completely difficult, no friends, relatives around, or someone who understands your language. My coming to this program has been a great turnaround, I can now speak some English and I have made new friends. During the pandemic, it helped me feel I have somewhere I belong now” - Charlotte

Review - Jonathan Österlund

Heart and passion for important integration work with immigrants
January 2019 I visited Eden Foundation and founder Mayele Jules. The day I was at the center there was a graduation for their students. Great to see the students that had excelled in English proficiency and other necessary skills in order to be active citizens in their new country Uganda. Eden Foundation does an important work with immigrants and refugees for successful integration. Mayele works tirelessly with heart and passion. I am very impressed by his leadership and drive.
