The Women's Programme during Covid 19
Covid 19 is changing the way we live and work. Unfortunately, we had to cancel all the planned courses of the Women's Programme in spring but we are still continuing with some classes online e.g. English Language and Communication classes and the Water Colouring Class. These classes will finish at the end of June.
We are planning to organise online Multicultural Women's Breakfasts during the summer starting at the end of June. More information will be available soon on this website. We also hope to be back in September with more classes.
In the meantime you can contact the Women's Programme by phone on 087 720 3665 (Rafika) and on 087 6128740 (Daniela). Stay safe and take care of yourself!

- Using video messaging in over 30 different languages, from Swahili to Urdu, Chinese to Czech and Portuguese to Polish, this new service will be run by the Together Ireland Initiative and Nasc, the Migrant and Refugee Rights Centre. Over 20 doctors, and other healthcare professionals, from around the world, but living and working in Ireland, have voiced the video messages which have been scripted with advice on how to prevent the contraction and spread of the virus as well as what to do if you test positive for Covid19 or are a contact of someone who has.
