Indian peacekeepers start English language course for women
UNIFIL’s Indian peacekeepers this week started English language course for a group of young women of Souk Al Khan in their area of responsibility in south-eastern Lebanon.
The six-week course, for which 23 women have registered so far, kicked off at the Centre for Care and Development and will entail written and spoken expressions of the English language.
The programme, initiated at the request of local authorities, will help them improve the participants’ skills in the usage of English language in their everyday life. It also seeks to build their capacity and shall enable them with added qualification in an additional language, which may potentially open up their new employment prospects.
Between peacekeeping duties, UNIFIL peacekeepers regularly carry out various small-scale activities with the host communities, which boosts their bond and further facilitates the UNIFIL’s core operational activities.
