Summary

Starting this fall Lighthouse Relief wants to expand its assistance to children in Ritosna refugee camp who will enrol in local Greek schools. For many of them it will be their first encounter with Greek language and culture. We want to help them in the process of adapting to the new realities. We aim to do this by providing them with school supplies, after-school Greek language classes as well as a packed lunch. Help Lighthouse Relief restore the dreams of refugee children in Greece!

Challenge

Nearly 60,000 refugees, including many children, find themselves in extremely vulnerable positions in Greece. Many have been living in refugee camps for a long time. Following the closure of some crucial internal EU borders, many refugees feel trapped in a crisis-ravaged country that can barely provide for its own citizens. Yet more refugees continue to take the tremendous risk of crossing the Aegean Sea from Turkey to arrive in Greece.

Solution

Focusing on a wide range of non-formal education activities, Lighthouse Relief is providing psycho-social support for vulnerable refugee children and youth in Greece. Every day Lighthouse Relief assists between 50 to 100 children and youth at the Ritsona refugee camp. In September, children aged 7 years and older will start going to local schools. For many of them it will be their first encounter with Greek language and culture, as well as their initiation into the Greek public school system.

Long-Term Impact

Providing refugee children and youth with assistance to be successful at school, learning, regaining self-confidence, making new friends and restoring their dreams.
