Interview with refugee from Ethiopia Eskedar Maštavičienė: 'Lithuania is my country'
The subject of migrants, refugees is among the most discussed themes in today's adult education community of Europe. Epale supports and initiates discussions aimed at familiarisation and understanding of refugees.
In the beginning of September, at the discussion festival called 'Būtent' ('Exactly') organised in Lithuania for the first time, the Education Exchanges Support Foundation invited to an open discussion: 'Refugees - compassion or our fears will take over?' Ilma Skuodienė, the Head of Foreigners Integration Programme, Caritas of Vilnius Archdiocese, and refugee from Ethiopia Eskedar Maštavičienė, who has been living in the country for over a decade, took part in the discussion.
