Terre des hommes
Terre des hommes is the leading Swiss child relief agency. We are committed to improving the lives of millions of the world's most vulnerable children.
We are working in four refugee sites and various urban accommodations in Ioannina and Thessaloniki. Our teams organise psychosocial and recreational activities for the children and provide individual support to children in need of protection. We also offer advice, raise the families’ awareness of child protection issues and inform them of their rights. Providing daily activities for the children helps to restore a sense of normality in their lives despite the harsh living conditions and uncertainty about the future. We also provide extremely vulnerable families with safe and dignified accommodation and support them in accessing all services they need.
We are supporting children in refugee camps and various urban locations in the Epirus region where we provide educational activities. These are funded by the European Commission and provided through the partnership with the University of Ioannina in order to maintain or improve the school level of children thus enabling them to integrate into the formal education system in Greece when the opportunity arises. Innovative equipment to enhance the educational experience is provided by our partner Libraries without Borders.
