Another innovative initiative by METAdrasi: “Supported Semi-Independent Living for unaccompanied minors” aged 16-18.
In addition to offering accommodation, this activity focuses on improving and empowering the skills developed by the unaccompanied minors and aims at enabling their smooth transition to adulthood and integration to Greek society.
Sami* is the first child to benefit from the activity. He arrived in our country alone, about a year ago, seeking for shelter and safety, leaving behind conflicts, violence and the loss of people he loved. METAdrasi has been standing by Sami from the very beginning, through the Guardianship Network for Unaccompanied Minors and the Accommodation Facility in Chios. Thanks to this initiative, Sami now lives in an apartment in Athens, where he has his own room, he goes to school and feels that he can realize his dreams and plans.
The activity is implemented with the support of Unicef, the important contribution of the Public Prosecutor for Minors and METAdrasi’s Guardianship Network for
Unaccompanied Minors, as well as with the cooperation of EKKA (National Center for Social Solidarity).
