The 2019 Campaign: Refugee Education Greece

We're asking for your support.

Over the next 8 weeks, we're fundraising urgently to keep Action for Education's programmes in Greece open and running in 2019.

Over the past 2 and half years, our work in Chios has provided essential safe-spaces and education to thousands of children and young adults.

For as long as it's needed, we are fighting day after day to uphold the rights and dignity of youth, as they arrive into terrible conditions and abysmal camps in Europe.

On the island of Chios, we operate Refugee Education Chios, a holistic project comprising a Youth Centre, High School and Outreach programme. We run 7 days a week thanks to a passionate and professional team of volunteers that have come from over 30 countries to help.

But our work in 2019 will end, unless we can fundraise enough money to keep our spaces open. Working against the tide of xenophobia, misinformation and general apathy, you can join our movement of solidarity and action for education by donating today. 

Over 8 week, we need to fundraise £100,000 - enough money to secure our programmes in Chios and Athens for the next 6 months. 

Help us today.

I support this cause because I believe that everyone should have the right to education, and that children have the right to as carefree a childhood as we can give them - even in circumstances as dire as this.
