This project will provide education for children living in refugee camps through the means of creative and entertainment activities. The daily program consists of English & Math, Art and Cinema, serving around 200 children. We believe every child deserves access to education. By responding to the urgent need for education in refugee camps, we hope to motivate the children and give them hope for a future of possibility ahead of them!
With over 50,000 refugees in Greece, camps are overcrowded and families are left in waiting for years before receiving their formal asylum documents. This means children are living in this unstable environment for years without any access to education. Without education, the children lack motivation and structure, and ultimately lose hope for their futures. This project will affect more than 200 children living in refugee camps!
Through this project, we provide education which offers a hope for the future not just for the child, but also for the family. The children learn basic English & Math education which will help them integrate into a formal school system when they are placed in their host country. Additionally, we assist them in coping with the trauma they experience by giving them a safe space to express themselves, be creative, and enjoy life as a kid!
This project will educate over 200 children, which will provide future opportunity in their host country for them and ultimately their families. We also believe that when you invest in educating refugee children, you invest in peace.
