Within the framework of the 5th episode of the Information centre for newcomers news we guested in the cities of Valmiera and Cēsis. In Valmiera, we met with Baiba Zalcmane, the head of the Valmiera regional Information centre for newcomers, who told us about the life of the third-country national communities in Vidzeme. We also visited the cozy cafe "Ahh-meat" of Ahmet and his latvian wife Laila, where we learned the life story of the couple. In Cēsis we met Dita Rutule - a Latvian language teacher who specializes in teaching Latvian to immigrants, as well as talked to youth specialist Iveta Jermolajeva about Georgian youth who participate in various volunteer activities in Latvia.
