Challenge

Inhumane living conditions in refugee camps, endless bureaucratic procedures, non-existent solutions for accessing educational facilities and the feeling of abandonment are what more than 1,300 refugees face when they arrive on the island of Lesvos. Mosaik Support Center has always made as much space as necessary to welcome people and offer them support, such as educational programs, employability courses, life assistance, bureaucratic support and a number of other interactive events.

Solution

Every effort is made to create a safe environment where people can discover their preferences and strengths and compensate for their weak points to develop employability and language skills. At the same time, people build a network, explore educational and job opportunities, and integrate into the local community.

Long-Term Impact

Refugees arriving on the island are supported by a community that guides them through the various stages of resettlement, from mental support to network building to independence as they navigate the Greek social and economic system.
