Our history | Lingu

Our story

Historien om Lingu startet i den ideelle organisasjonen KIA som jobber med integrering og norskopplæring. Gründer Odd Bjerga arbeidet i denne organisasjonen og kom i kontakt med dyktige og ressurssterke mennesker fra mange ulike land.

Idéen om Lingu oppsto i denne konteksten av migrasjon og kommunikasjon, og menneskelige talenter.
