The increase of migration flows in Greece is an issue that is of great interest both for the Greek State and society. The fact that Greece is in the social and economic crisis raises concerns for the present and future of migrant populations, and in particular with regard to vulnerable groups such as children, the elderly and single mothers.
In this context, KEAN has developed the project “I DO-4EU” that will give the opportunity of reception, hosting and the formation of two (2) young volunteers from Turkey and Italy, to offer their volunteer services of various kinds. Through the Organization’s existing activities in this project will fill the void created by the fragmentary information on access to health services, accommodation, meals and lack of reception services.
The project aims to contribute significantly to improving the living conditions of the immigrant population that is coming to Athens and the defence of their fundamental rights. So the volunteers will be engaged in activities that help immigrants newly arrived in Greece under the instruction and guidance of the team of KEAN and its partners.
Main activities for volunteers:
-active participation in experiential education programs aimed at children of primary and secondary schools, which the organization carries out under different forms since its foundation.
-participation in the management of web pages, websites and social media in your organization (creating articles, blogs, press releases, update, translations).
-support to the “Information Service Center in Athens, which is aimed at immigrant populations.
-active participation in the creation of a “network of communication and cooperation,” which will involve other institutions, agencies and organisations involved in immigration issues (creating, updating and expansion of the database).
-participation in the activities of “street work” (identify the target groups and provide them with information).
-support of the function of “Creative Center” aimed at immigrant populations (participation in creative activities will appeal to children, while their parents will receive advice and listening).
