One of them was Samin Razzaghi who wanted to contribute her work as a professional make-up artist. She is giving regularly make-up classes which also include the theory of colors and skincare for refugee women at our location in Kifissia. Also, we will have jewelry-making workshops, where mothers and children will learn how to make fashionable jewelry and art classes for mothers and children as support to overcome their traumas. And more importantly, we learned that there is a great need for language classes, therefore we organized Greek and English classes using volunteers from all over the world – as we had done online.
We have 13 volunteers (and professional teachers) and up to 150 students. As we are a registered NGO, the students get “certificates of attendance”, which could be helpful on their CVs. We are working constantly together with vulnerable people. We include them in all our projects and motivate them in this way to build a new life here in Greece. Other projects will follow. Also, we are open to all kinds of ideas either from locals or from refugees, in order to make their life more joyful, to give them a sense of normality, and learn about Greek society and culture.
