Kalimera from Athens

Teachers 4 Refugees was visiting Athens to meet some of our partners. Spring is already in Athens. Our journey was not so smooth this time: poor weather in Istanbul made delays on flight schedule and thief took my wallet while walking in the center. None was harmed though. Sometimes climate change and austerity reminds us this way. 

We also were able to meet Shah, a refugee from Belochistan in Pakistan I got to know in Lesvos 2015. He has started an initiative with abandonded and strsy dogs.  We were happy to support his cause with some dog food. Increasing working life participation among refugees is one of the core tasks in order to increase participation in firmal education.

Enjoy the awakenings of spring. Efkharisto.
