In October 2016 I had the opportunity to go and teach in a charity school in a refugee camp, just north of Athens. I am now about to go back for 2 months, 2 weeks changed my life the first time around, so I'm taking a life ' pause' and going back out there. I'm asking friends and family to help support me in staying there, alongside buying: exciting resources for lessons, games, fresh fruit for break time, and also to have some money to give to people / families when they desperately need something.
I have had many generous offers of items to take, which I did on my last visit. However, I would really like to be able to help Greece out a tiny bit as they are doing so much for the refugees, with a struggling economy, I would like to buy the resources I need out there.
I felt so alive when volunteering with an AMAZING group of people, the hope and positive mental attitude they leave you with is mind blowing. I feel very privileged to be embarking on this adventure. So please anything big or small will be put towards directly benefitting the children and adults who come to the school, and any more that I can raise will go to the charity, check it out 'Armando Aid'.
At a time of uncertainty in the world, I can make certain that any donation goes towards making a positive change in the world. Good will overcome evil, if we stand united, smile at each other and help where we can.
