Orient Express ist a feminist migrant organisation located in Vienna, Austria, running a councelling centre, two shelters for women and girls as well as a learning centre.
Our adult learning centre offers literacy and basic education courses (German as a second language, numeracy, digital skills etc) for women with little or no school experience. We aim at offering a space where participants can feel comfortable and learn well. Our courses are openly designed and oriented towards the needs of the learners. We are especially interested in alternative teaching approaches (e.g. drama or music pedagogy), foundations of learning, emanciptory perspectives on learning that foster women's self-efficacy, supporting social inclusion of participants (educationally disatvantaged migrant and refugee women)...
We are currently coordinating a project on resilience in basic education and would like to join a new project this year.
