Where we work:
LESVOS, GREECE: While working towards opening our own learning centre, we currently partner with several other organisations to provide safe learning spaces for children and adults. For children, our focus in on preparing for school with a focus on English literacy, numeracy, and the arts. For adults, we offer English language classes in a variety of informal settings.
GERMANY: We recruit teachers for the Justice Project, an organisation dedicated to supporting women rescued out of sexual trafficking and exploitation. This project helps women with life skills acquisition, literacy, numeracy, and job readiness.
ETHIOPIA: We partner with Brook Hill Development Organisation, a local NGO working in Koshe—the area of Addis built up around the city dump. Together we train local volunteers to implement the Open Schools Worldwide programme, an educational intervention designed to lift children with significant gaps in their education and living in the most extreme poverty to a grade 3 standard in literacy and numeracy. The programme facilitates healing through trauma-informed practices and loving relationships.
And on our horizon: Mafraq, Jordan; Belgrade, Serbia; and Northern Italy.
