BONITA SPRINGS, FL – September 29th, 2022 - Interactyx, the developer of the TOPYX® LMS, and EdTek Services, a full-service eLearning technology and support provider for small to midsize organizations, are excited to announce a partnership with Aman Lara to provide 350+ Soft Skills courses to over 3400 Afghan refugees brought to Canada in the last 12 months.
Aman Lara has worked hard under very difficult conditions to bring over those Afghan allies who assisted Canadian military, diplomatic and aid staff for two decades. With this partnership, Topyx and EdTek will offer 350+ Soft Skills courses, at no cost, through the TOPYX LMS to assist Aman Lara as they resettle and transition these families.
“Landing in a strange country can be terrifying”, says Brian MacDonald, executive director of Aman Lara, “but equally as scary are all those questions you are afraid to ask as you try to transition to your new home. We are thankful for the commitment from Deloitte Canada, Topyx, EdTek, Valemount Consulting, Learn eCORE and theValueExchange for supporting our anniversary event and this valuable training program.”
“We are excited to be working with Aman Lara, EdTek, Deloitte Canada and all the partner companies to help raise awareness of the challenges facing these Afghan immigrants," states Simon Cooper Chief Executive Officer of Interactyx. “Topyx has long been a proponent of doing good while doing well and with EdTek we plan to duplicate this initiative for the Afghan people who assisted the United States during our 20-year mission and are now being brought over to the U.S.”
“We heard about Aman Lara’s 1-Year Anniversary to celebrate bringing over 3400 Afghans to Canada and I thought about the stories my four grandparents told about moving to a new country so I knew I wanted to do something,” Paul Jacobelli, President of EdTek, said. “We could not have done this alone and are very grateful to key supporters at Topyx and Deloitte Canada and the other partners for immediately saying yes to assist with Aman Lara’s Anniversary event and this training program.”
