It has been a month full of information!

It has been a month of May full of much information regarding Venezuelan forced migrants.

At VIA, we focus on sharing quality visual content to circulate truthful and accurate information, thus raising awareness about the situation experienced by Venezuelan forced migrants in different countries of the world. For us, it is one of our ways of helping.

5,000+ people reached through our social network posts and campaigns.

3,400+ people interacted with us through our posts.

We began the third cycle of our American English online pronunciation classes.

We continued with our Saturday online English classes.

We completed the second cycle of our one on one English tutoring for those under 18 years of age. And we continued with our awareness campaigns on the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and the forced migration resulting from that crisis.


The Unintentional American Dream.

We want to thank Professor Mary Ritter, Maxime Sachar, and the NYU School of Professional Studies English Language Institute (ELI) for featuring VIA's founder Niurka Melendez's story on its blog, and thus helping the name of VIA be better known.

Yonatan Matheus: The Fight from Exile

"I believe that the noise generated by the difficulties that we live, inside and outside our country, can often stun us, cloud our senses, and attenuate our capacity to be empathetic, supportive, and resilient."

We are proud and grateful to have such strong people as Yonatan here at VIA.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first TPS Application Workshop last Saturday.
