Online Education Campaign for Refugees in Greece

Your Donations Will Be Put To Use In:

All donations received will be put to immediate use to support the establishment of a learning center for students in Greece that are not able to receive a proper education for political, financial, or psychological reasons. In scope of the COVID-19 pandemic, online education has been more prominent and has been a solution to a global problem. Thus, donations will be used to purchase laptops and academic books and resources for teachers and students.

Photos of the cultural and learning center that was funded by your previous donations can be seen below.

Who Are We?

Following the July 15th, 2016 coup attempt in Turkey, 150,348 civil servants have been dismissed from their jobs, 217,971 detained and 82,142 of them were imprisoned and many of them were exposed to mistreatment. Over 17,000 women and 668 babies are among the people imprisoned and 189 media outlets have been shut down and 319 journalists have been arrested.

We are a small group that has been leading this projecte for the past 3 years aiming to support refugees seeking asylum in Greece that have managed to flee Turkish prosecution, imprisonment, and mistreatment by risking the lives of themselves and their families across the Evros River.
