Introducing AILEM

AILEM is an app that aims to provide language education for refugees and asylum seekers to help integrate in a foreign country.


The app is completely free and the content is tailored specifically for refugees and asylum seekers, depending on the region and their experiences.


Created by refugees, for refugees.

Our core ethos is “Created by refugees for refugees''. Throughout the app creation journey, every design, feature, and solution is consulted with our refugee and asylum seeker community, ensuring that we have a solution that is tailored to their journey, and experiences.
