The project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Grants Greek NGO Programme “We are all Citizens”. The Bodossaki Foundation is the Fund Operator of this Programme. The Programme aims to strengthen civil society and enhance the contribution of NGOs to social justice, democracy and sustainable development.
The project aims to strengthen intercultural dialogue, in addition to strengthening the refugee communities, themselves. More specifically, intercultural dialogue is promoted between schools and communities so as to ensure:
- the smooth and long-term integration into Greek society and the satisfactory exercise of the rights of particularly vulnerable groups, such as asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection currently within the country, who now face the risk of being deprived of any way of guaranteeing their own livelihood, the possibility of social exclusion and marginalization, the danger of becoming victims of discrimination, or even racist violence, and
- the effective awareness of children in the context of issues of diversity and, as a result, their active integration in a multicultural society.
The expected results of the project include, inter alia:
a) forty (40) visits to refugee communities
