ArmandoAid Education for Refugee Children

ArmandoAid is a non-religious, non-political charity that has recently opened a school for children and adults at Oinofyta Refugee hotspot in Central Greece after the closing of borders back in March.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that every child has the right to access free primary education; refugee children have fled their homes and lives and some haven't been to school for years.

Our priority is to give a sense of normality and routine, giving the children a safe space to learn and express themselves as well as teaching them English, gardening and basic numeracy. We are also running English classes for adults in the camp and these have proven to be really popular and well received.

We have no official funding or support and are relying on personal donations and goodwill. Our most important asset is our volunteer teachers who are making a great difference to the lives of the children in the community.

The next challenge we face is to bring clean running water and electricity to the school so we can ensure the building is safe and clean for the children as we head towards autumn and winter.

We need funds! We need you to help us continue this very important mission.
