The Learning Station Project was set up in 2016 by two students from King's College London, Emma Yagour and Lola Siran.
"We would regularly volunteer with refugee organisations across London. The people we met explained how acquiring language skills was essential not just for integration but also to understand the complex legal procedures they had to go through." - Lola Siran
Lola and Emma quickly recognised the need to set up English classes for refugees and asylum seekers in a more central location in London, after speaking to many people who described the difficulties of accessing other English classes across London due to transport costs.
The Learning Station Project was then founded, with the support of King’s College London.
"More than a class, we like to think that our evening classes are also a time of laughter, sharing of cultures and happiness." - Emma Yagour
Over the years, the Learning Station Project has grown into an exciting programme, which offers English classes, cultural outings and sports activities to its students.
