“I don’t want to be a burden on the government, I want to be an asset, ” says Kainaaz, a Chatterbox tutor and exiled film producer and director. “if I could make myself useful at any point with Chatterbox, as a conversation partner or as a helper in any other way, I would love to do that.”
Chatterbox trains and employs refugee academics and professionals to teach their native languages. The venture simultaneously catalyses refugee integration into the UK workforce and tackles the costly language skills deficit losing the UK economy and estimated £48 billion every year. We aim to highlight the immense untapped potential and value within the refugee community.
