Failte Isteach1

Fáilte Isteach is a community project involving older volunteers, who welcome new migrants through conversational English classes. This initiative utilises the skills, talents and expertise of older volunteers and harnesses their desire to contribute positively to society.

The classes break down barriers that migrants and communities face by extending the hands of friendship and goodwill in a practical, welcoming and inclusive manner. The programme provides more than the transfer of skills and knowledge it makes a positive difference to everyone involved.
