Intercultural and Bilingual Education Program: Warrau Language

Voices GY staff: IBE teachers and translators

Programme financed by the Government of the United States of America and supported by the Pan American Development Foundation.

Voices GY´s pilot Intercultural and Bilingual Education Programme for Warrau seeks to address a number of important challenges for both migrants and host communities in Guyana. The programme is inspired by similar indigenous IBE programmes in the region, but would be innovative as the first programme of its kind to respond to both a need for indigenous language integration and a humanitarian crisis stemming from migration. Through our IBE programme, we seek to improve school performance, promote, establish and make relevant language and culture, and facilitate the integration of migrant Warao children from Venezuela.
