Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Cultural Orientation Session

Democratic Replublic of Congo (DRC) Cultural Orientation Session

East Midlands Councils have organised a 2.5 hour virtual DRC Information Session on Wednesday 30th September at 2pm. This virtual training session will be hosted by IOM UK. 


Integration works best when both refugees and those receiving them have a good understanding of each other's expectations, cultural differences, and practices. By exploring DRC refugees' perspectives, experiences, and needs, host communities can increase their understanding and adapt their support for enhanced effectiveness.

In this 2.5 hour webinar, IOM UK will provide an overview of DRC communities through topics such as cultural heritage, health and education experiences, recent history, and conditions of displacement. IOM UK recommends registering as soon as possible, as participants will be limited to 25 people to encourage a more interactive session. Upon registering, participants are asked to complete a pre-session questionnaire to help better tailor the focus of the day.
