Countless Afghans have been forced to flee their homes and country due to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. As a result, the federal government has pledged to resettle up to 40,000 Afghan refugees. Achēv is committed to helping Afghan refugees settle successfully in their new communities by supporting their employment, settlement and language needs. We have delivered various informative newcomer webinars, conducted one-on-one employment counselling and provided English language assessments as part of our support in their settlement journey.
As the season transitions into winter, Afghan refugees and their families will need winter clothing and other essential items. We held an internal donation drive and our staff donated winter clothing and boots, diapers and baby formulas to support recently arrived Afghan refugees in need.
We look forward to continue providing Afghan refugees who have arrived, and continue to arrive, with the resources and guidance they need to achieve their settlement goals.
