The City of Reykjavík increased funding to the project “Future in a New Country” last week, helping young Vietnamese immigrants to adjust to life in Iceland.
Reykjavík increased it support from ISK one million to ISK 1.2 million (EUR 13,282, USD 17,699). Fréttabladid reports.
The three-year project assists 15-25-year-old Vietnamese immigrants in education and in actively taking part in the Icelandic community.
Another project, “The Path to Icelandic,” was recently launched to support the young immigrants at school and while learning the Icelandic language. The City of Reykjavík has supported that project with ISK 500,000 (EUR 5,534, USD 7,375).
The funds for both projects were handed over at a special ceremony at Höfdi House in Reykjavík last week.
About 100 young Vietnamese immigrants live in Iceland and most of them live in the capital area.
