The actual integration of refugee and migrant children begins in the classrooms. Outside the classrooms too. Definitely outside the hotspots.
“The number of children that remain trapped for long periods of time in the island’s hotspots is high. Many of them have never been to school. All of them, however, are enthusiastic to participate in activities that will aid their personal development and stimulate their growth as learners, along with other children of the same age. We were moved by their enthusiasm for the beginning of the first day of lessons, when they created queues a long time before…”
Anastasia Karagianni, METAdrasi’s Education Officer in Chios
More than 700 refugee and migrant children participate in METAdrasi’s educational activities in Athens, Lesvos and Chios.
