Summary

LHR has been assisting refugee children and youth in Ritsona refugee camp since 2016. Currently, this dusty former military base turned refugee camp is at full capacity. We serve children and youth here by operating two spaces. One is dedicated to children, and the other to the youth. There we provide age-appropriate psychosocial activities, music, art, and sports. In addition, we maintain a relief team on the island of Lesvos, who work day and night to provide immediate relief to people.

Challenge

Almost 40% of the population in Ritsona are children or youth. Most of them have missed a few years of schooling due to their displacement, others have never been to school and are illiterate. Whether they are staying in Greece or are moving to other countries in Europe, they deserve to be educated. This is a fundamental human right. LHR is the last remaining NGO proving constant emergency assistance on the north shores of Lesvos.

Solution

LHR would like to enrich its activities by providing Greek language courses taught by specialist professional teachers, as well as a range of dynamic STEM courses (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics) which will strengthen the mathematical and problem-solving skills of Ritsona's children. We are also planning IT workshops which we believe will be extremely beneficial to the youth in particular.

Long-Term Impact

LHR aims to support and strengthen the skills of those already in formal education and to provide a bridge for those who are currently outside the formal school system. Providing educational activities will increase the sense of self-sufficiency, self-confidence, social inclusion and self-worth of our young beneficiaries and will strengthen their ability to cope with adversity and stress.
