  • Description


    We are an NGO and we operate a community center for the residents of a nearby refugee camp.
    We provide psycho-social support throughout our different programs: Female Friendly Space, Children Friendly Space, Educational Program (English and German lessons), Arts and Recreation program (yoga/fitness/dance/guitar/piano lessons), and warehouse (distribution of dry food/ clothes/hygiene products).
    We are located in Serrés, Northern Greece, about an hour away from Thessaloniki.
    The residents of the camps are mostly Yazidis from Northern Iraq and Syria who had to leave their country during the war. We also have residents from Afghanistan, Yemen, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    At the moment, due to the COVID pandemic and government restrictions, we are unable to process any applications. This is due to the fact that our field is temporarily closed and there isn't a set date for when it will reopen - it depends on the course of the pandemic recovery and the changing of government rules. We would be, however, happy to share more detailed information about our work and you can make a decision on filling in an application for when our activities go back to normal, just send us a message!

    We are currently providing a limited amount of services to the refugee camps, including remote education, a mobile library, and regular distribution of goods. We cannot wait to be able to reopen again and go back to our lively and wholesome normal activities.

    Skills preferred : English / German teacher (experience, TEFL, or strong interest and organizational skills), experience working with children, yoga/fitness, experience working with women and girls.

    Minimum commitment: 6 weeks.
