Arrival delayed for Project Habesha students

Until further notice

At the end of last year, we announced that the new students of the Habesha Project: Complementary Pathways program would arrive in Mexico in January 2024. However, due to complications in their first country of refuge, Kenya, their arrival has been postponed until further notice.

In the meanwhile, the four students of South Sudanese origin will continue with DIME’s Intensive Spanish Learning and Academic Regularization Course (CIAERA). This has been taught remotely by our Spanish Officer in order to minimize the impact of this delay on their academic and language skills.

At DIME, we are committed to constantly monitoring and supporting our students before, during, and after their academic studies. Therefore, we are keeping up to date on the situation and remain prepared to ensure their trip to Mexico is safe and satisfactory.

Give to Welcome

In order to support the students during the start of their new lives in Mexico, we are calling on the support of students, academics, and members of Mexican society to cover the following needs through a monetary contribution:*

  • Basic food items (except pork)
  • Personal hygiene products
  • Clothes for men and women
  • Household items (dishes, cutlery, tupperware, appliances, etc.)

With your support, we will be able to give them a generous welcome to Mexico, as well as ensure the satisfactory start of their studies at our partner universities.

*All donations will be used to purchase the products listed above. Given the nature of the perishable products, as well as logistical limitations, in-kind donations will NOT be accepted.
