Our New Samos Centre
From early 2019, we’re opening a new centre on Samos, addressing deteriorating conditions and an immediate need for safe spaces outside the camp at Vathy.
Our Centre will comprises non-formal language education, IT and cooking classes and vocational training, all tailored to need the greatest needs of those here.
In response to this worsening situation, we are in the process of opening a new centre, modelled on the successes of our Chios centres. It will be an essential safe space outside the camp for asylum seekers living in Vathy Camp. we offer non-formal education and psychosocial support through a blended model of timetabled classes and peer-to-peer learning opportunities.
The centre will run 6 days a week, meeting a variety of the urgent needs of those stuck on Samos. Our qualified team of volunteer teachers and youth workers strive to provide an alternative to the reality of the camp.
